Surprise proposal at Magnolia Garden Plantation in Charleston, SC

What a fun time I had hiding out in the swamp with the gators and snakes waiting for Frank to bring his lovely girlfriend (now fiancee) to Magnolia Gardens Plantation. Frank and I had been emailing and talking for several weeks prior about when and where he wanted to propose to Jessica. I always make a point to draw out a map for guys on these types of shoots so that they will know how to be positioned for the best angle for me. Without fail Frank hit his mark on the red bridge and totally caught Jessica by surprise! I don’t even think that she noticed me across the pond area swatting mosquitoes and bugs trying to blend in the best that I could. We even had a little crowd of tourists behind me while I was photographing. ;-) Afterwards we went around the garden area for some beautiful backdrops at the historic plantation. I was hoping a peacock would come and strut his stuff by us, but I think since it was a bit hot in July, the birds decided to stay in the shade under the moss lined oak trees that are out there. Congrats to both Frank and Jessica on their engagement!
