St Thomas Surprise Proposal

Added on by sage hammond.

Surprise proposals are always a fun way to spend my days! I feel like paparazzi hiding in the bushes waiting for that one special moment that two people will remember for the rest of their lives. As a St. Thomas photographer, it's one of the most enjoyable ways to photograph two people who love each other.

I recently shot an engagement for these two handsome men on Limetree Beach. Dominic and Ed came to St. Thomas on a cruise ship. Dominic contacted me a few weeks before they were scheduled to dock in St. Thomas to see if he could put something together for their surprise proposal. I immediately suggested Limetree Beach because it's so close to the cruise ship and it's a beautiful spot for photos!

Having no idea of the surprise that awaited him, Ed wanted to wear his swimwear off the ship. Dominic persisted by telling him he needed to wear his khaki shorts and his Hawaiian shirt (which I love).

When they got to the beach Dominic got on one knee, the world stopped for me to get this perfect shot. Ed finally understood what was going on and of course said YES! We then spent the next hour documenting their love for one another.

It was such a joy and an honor to be a part of this day with these guys. We hope to see them back in the near future for their destination St. Thomas wedding!
