Parag took advantage of an intimate Charleston vacation with his girlfriend, Amitha, to pop the question! He commissioned us to photograph it all.
We helped Parag plan the proposal at Magnolia Plantation in the weeks leading up to their trip. We arrived on location about 30 minutes early to stake out our hiding spots in the bushes. Parag texted us just before, to let us know what they were wearing, as we had never met them in person and didn’t know what they looked like.
Even despite a few awkward moments like when a group of tourists walked right into his planned spot just before he did, causing him (and us) to have to make quick adjustments, the proposal went down beautifully. Afterward, we all explored Magnolia Plantation together for engagement photos.
It’s always so amazing being there for these pivotal moments in people’s lives. Seeing Amitha and Parag make the decision together to become husband and wife, and being there to capture their joy in the moment, was one of the highlights of our year!
