The Biggest and Best Rush EVER!

Charleston Proposal Photographer Charleston Proposal Photographer Valerie & Co. Photographers

Everybody loves a really good surprise! When the secret is out and you are the one being surprised, there’s nothing like the rush of emotions then the feelings of excitement after realizing what’s happened. On the other side of that is the thrill of being in on the secret and being a part of the surprise. Your adrenaline gets pumping and you’re on a high knowing you’ve pulled it off and helped make someone so happy. The genuine shock and pure joy on that person’s face is priceless!

 Probably the biggest best surprise anyone could accomplish, is asking your love to marry you! Our studio, Valerie & Co. Photographers, recently shot Chad and Jennifer’s proposal and Jennifer just did not see it coming!

Chad and Jennifer were planning a vacation to Charleston, SC, and Chad secretly decided that during their visit, he would propose to Jennifer! The two of them had talked about and looked into different places they wanted to check out while on vacation. For Chad, the spot that stood out the most to Chad is a historic park, White Point Gardens, and the beautiful white gazebo situated along Charleston’s harbor on The Battery. He then setup proposal photo coverage with us, enlisted the help of Jennifer’s sister to secretly make sure Jennifer would be picture ready for the surprise, made sure they had dinner reservations, and even obtained a permit with the Charleston Parks Department for the White Point Garden gazebo.


The big day came and Jennifer’s sister had convinced Jennifer to pamper herself while on vacation and made an appointment at luxury salon to get her hair done. The appointment ran a bit late but the beautiful Jennifer was perfectly styled and ready for a dinner date with Chad. Chad told Jennifer they should do a bit of sightseeing before dinner and the two took a stroll in the park on the Battery. They reached the gazebo where Chad got on one knee, pulled out a dazzling diamond ring, and asked Jennifer to be his wife! Her hands covered her mouth as she gasped from surprise. She leaned in for a kiss and gave Chad an excited yes in reply! The surprises kept coming cause he then revealed to her that the entire proposal had been secretly caught on camera! Jennifer was absolutely stunned and completely overjoyed by the entire event. We loved capturing this heartfelt moment for such a wonderful couple and it was such a pleasure being in on the secret and a part of their surprise! Congratulations to Jennifer and Chad!
