I had the honor of not only witnessing this incredibly thoughtful proposal, but creating beautiful images to capture such an important and joyful day in their lives. The fact that Tom was so kind every time we spoke and Liv felt like an old friend from the moment we met, well that was just the icing on the cake. I’m so thankful that these two beautiful souls will be joining their lives together and meeting them truly is a blessing.

Tom reached out to me a few MONTHS before he intended to propose. At that point, I had no idea that he had already flown in from _____ to ask Liv’s parents for permission to marry their daughter. The whole story unfolded after Tom proposed and both his and her parents went over to congratulate them. Not only was Liv shocked that Tom was able to fly into South Carolina, meet with her parents for lunch, fly back home, and tell a story to cover for the DELAYED departure, she couldn’t believe the ability everyone had to keep the secret for so long!

“I can’t believe all the sneakiness that took place.”





Tom and Liv,

Thank you again for entrusting me to photograph your wedding proposal while you were here in Beaufort, SC
