We adore the Charleston Waterfront Park and, occasionally, we get to photograph a shoot in that area with the most popular place being the park's Pineapple Fountain. However, when Chandler asked us here at Valerie & Co. Photographers to capture his proposal to Carrie, he had another romantic spot in mind at the Waterfront Park for the big moment! Chandler settled on proposing along the park pier with it's beautiful views that lookout into Charleston's city harbor. :-) Check out a few of Carrie and Chandler's super sweet Charleston Waterfront Park Pier proposal photos in the gallery and read what Carrie had to say about their proposal and wonderful love story!

It's crazy to imagine that the love of your life could be right in front of you for a very long time, but not even know it! Really though, it's all about fate's timing which was the case for newly engaged John and Mary Louise. For years these two were always so close to each other, but they didn't actually meet until the time was just right. Check out a few of the Charleston proposal photos of when Mary Louise said, "YES!" at Magnolia Plantation to John & read more about what she had to say on her and John's engagement and their love story! 

It's so delightful to see the joy on a person's face when that person is flooded with happiness and excitement! It's contagious cause you can't help but feel that happiness too. That's exactly the sentiment captured in Brian and Emily's surprise proposal photographs. :-) Emily was very surprised and so overcome with joy when Brian got down on one knee and popped the big question! We know you'll feel all those things too when you take a look at a few of Valerie & Co. Photographers' photos in the gallery of Emily & Brian's Pineapple Fountain proposal and read their love story!

We here at Valerie & Co. Photographers adore Preston and Caroline's Kiawah Island proposal for all the love and celebrating that was captured during this super sweet occasion. :-) Imagine going on a summer vacation to a posh island golf resort, getting engaged to the love of your life on a beautiful lush green lawn overlooking the ocean, your family and friends around you celebrating, and a professional photographer there to get pictures of it all! That's how it went down for Caroline and Preston. :-) To fully imagine all the love and magic in that moment, take a look at a few of their romantic Kiawah Island Golf Resort proposal photos in the gallery and check out this couple's love story!

We here at Valerie & Co. adore all of the surprise proposals we've been a part of and photographed. We love telling the couple's love story and how it all happened, but, this time, we want to share The Bride's Side! Newly engaged beautiful bride to be, Hayley, gave us the story of how Mitch proposed. We are very excited to share it and their awesome Boone Hall surprise engagement photos with you now!

You just don't know where you'll meet your true love. You could be young and meet your high school sweetheart in class, or you may meet your love in the prime of your life while out one evening with friends. You could connect with someone online or through work. Or you could meet on the other side of the world like the newly engaged, Tyler and Liz! Liz is from Sayville, NY and Tyler is from Cleveland, OH, but the two of them met and fell in love while at Australia's Bond University during their time studying abroad. After dating for four years, Tyler wanted to take Liz to the beautiful Boone Hall Plantation and get engaged under the grand and historic Avenue of Oaks! Read on to learn all the details that Tyler shared with us about his & Liz's Boone Hall Plantation proposal and to see some of their sweet surprise proposal pictures. :-)

Have you had a sneaking suspicion lately that there's a good possibility your partner is about to propose?! But, how can you know??? We just photographed Brandon's surprise proposal to Katie, and leading up to their engagement, there was at least one detail that our studio knows about that could've clued you in on Brandon's plans to ask Katie if she would marry him! Now, we here at Valerie & Co. Photographers LOVE a good secret, and we'd never want to ruin anyone's surprise. However, if you've been starting to think your man is going to get down on one knee, but you want to be a little prepared and would maybe enjoy going to get a manicure before a brand new ring is slipped on your finger, we can tell you about a little sign that could give you a heads up that your guy may be ready to pop the big question! Here is one way to know he's about to propose from this Charleston Engagement Photographer. :-)
