Ashley & Tyler // Surprise Proposal at the Savannah Rapids

Oh man. Honestly, it is hard to put into words how awesome this day was! At times I was nervous, excited, riddled with goose-bumps, running in 93° heat with my gear but most of all grateful to be apart of such a special moment!
Tyler brought Nick and I to Augusta - where he and Ashley have lived their whole lives and where he was planning on asking her to spend the rest of their lives together. They actually grew up as neighbors and went to school together but it wasn't until years later that they finally started dating. Tyler is in the Reserves and Ashley is a local school teacher and on this day, they decided to kind of repeat their first date - has this started to sound like a movie yet?
We met with Tyler a few hours before it was all going to go down and we strategized a plan and a route for the two of them to walk so we could capture some "secret" shots before and during the proposal. We even decided I would stop them at some point to ask them if I could take their picture "for my portfolio." 
Needless to say, Tyler's thorough planning worked and Ashley had no idea any of this was coming. They were an absolute joy to work with and you can definitely see the love they have for each other in the engagement pictures that followed to proposal.
