St. Michaels, Maryland Photographer / Proposal

July 9, 2014

She was in Maryland for a vacation with her family.  They had rented a house on the Eastern Shore so Erica called and inquired about a photo shoot.  A day later, I got a call from Andy letting me in on a secret.  The kind of secret we girls gush over.  He was going to propose!  I.WAS.ECSTATIC!  I’d never met these lovely people but I couldn’t help myself.  In keeping up the guise, Erica’s sisters and I headed to the front of the house to get some pictures of the three of them after the other family shots were wrapped.  She had no clue that Andy and the rest of her family were in the back setting up a romantic scene for the big moment. surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0090 As she came through the door… We held our breath. She paused. Recognition dawned. Her eyes wide. A gasp. A smile. Lumps in our throats as we captured this unforgettable moment. surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0065surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0066 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0091 surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0067surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0068surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0069surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0070surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0071surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0072surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0073surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0074surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0075surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0076surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0077surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0078surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0079surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0080surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0081surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0083surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0084 A gift for King Louie. surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0086surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0087surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0088 Congratulations Erica & Andy!  Thank you for allowing us to witness and freeze this moment in time.  We are so happy for you!  Cheers to your extraordinary future together! surprise_proposal_royal_oak_maryland_wedding_photographer_eastern_shore_annapolis_southern_high_school_eastern_shore_easton_stmichaels_karenadixon_photography_0089
