It’s always exciting when that email hits my inbox: “We’re planning a trip to Florida and I’d like to propose to my girlfriend and have a photographer document it!” A Worth Ave proposal was just what I needed to get my mind off all this COVID stuff!
Matt and Emily were already planning their wedding (thanks, COVID) and future together, but the trip from Nashville to Palm Beach was a surprise for Emily. Leading up to his proposal, Matt and I discussed restaurants for a quick margarita and snacks, and Google-Map’ped our faces off trying to find the perfect spot for his proposal to Emily and a quick engagement session.
We finally decided on Worth Ave in Palm Beach. I love this engagement session location for the European feel, beautiful architecture, and low crowds in the summer.
Funny story about the moments before the surprise proposal – I knew Matt and Emily were in the area (thanks, iPhone stalking!) I watched as they walked right on by the clock tower – crawling with visitors. Matt booked it down the avenue towards a restaurant. I followed behind them, frantically calling friends and family because I figured I’d look less suspicious (haha!) Matt dipped into a restaurant, texted me that they were heading back, and I ran back to the tower to try to clear the crowds…
Anyway, our proposal plan worked! I sweetly (and sweatily – whew it’s hot out there!) asked a few people for some space around the clock tower, and Matt’s Palm Beach proposal worked itself out.
She said yes! (Duh!)
Planning your own surprise proposal? I promise you, they want a photographer to capture the moment! Get in touch and let’s get to planning the perfect West Palm Beach proposal!
DON'T STEAL SHIT.
