She said YES! Family beach session with a surprise proposal. EPIC.

You guys... this family. I photographed Kelly & Kenneth's wedding last October (the first couple from the right, below) and was so excited by all the genuine emotion of the entire family. People laughed, a lot- and cried tears of joy, and danced their *sses off at the reception. It was a photographer's dream.

This year the Kelly's brother David (first on the left) contacted me to organize a family photo session on the beach and wrote- "...and by the way I'm proposing to my girlfriend." I almost fell off my chair and died with giddiness when I read this. It doesn't get any better as far as I'm concerned:

*the beach close to sunset (gorgeous light)

*a family whom I adore (smiles all around, no awkwardness)

*and a surprise proposal (genuine emotion up the wazoo)

The weather definitely cooperated though it was a little chilly and windy. I took some traditional family shots first then started taking couples aside to set David up for the big moment. Now it was time and magic happened- she said YES! The whole mood changed and the cold didn't seem to bother anyone as much. Champagne poured and rose petals flew.

Take a look at this amazing afternoon. You can't help but smile.
