This proposal that Charlie created for Tram at the Yorktown Beach was every bit of emotion and simply perfect for the two of them. Charlie contacted me about proposing to Tram and wanted to propose to her Friday, on the beach at Yorktown because that was where their first date was. They went to the same restaurant for dinner and he planned to walk along the beach afterwards. This was what they did on their first date. Little did Tram know that Charlie was planning to create a new memory that they can relive every time they walk along this beach.
I could see it in Charlie’s demeanor as they walked passed me, I was acting like I was photographing something far away from them, Charlie was scanning for the perfect spot along the beach. After his pensive look around the beach Charlie asked Tram to follow him to the shoreline. Before she knew it, he was down on one knee asking to spend forever with her, to become Husband and Wife!
I was across the street. Traffic stopped for me because they realized what was going on, or they actually just wanted to watch for themselves. My long lens was on my camera so Tram would not notice that I was there, which went off without a hitch! You could hear their laughter, You could see their smiles, their hugs and kisses. One of my favorite parts was Charlie throwing the ring box to the ground once the ring was safely on Tram’s finger so he could wrap every part of his arms around her! His surprise proposal to Tram was complete!
Love that they have for each other jumps off of these photographs, their happiness seeps through every photograph that I took of them at their proposal and I am beyond thrilled to have been there for them. Congratulations Charlie and Tram! I wish you all the happiness, love and fun the world has to offer the two of you together. This is when Charlie told Tram that he hired a photographer to photograph this special moment for the two of them! Charlie periodically kissed Tram’s hands and I thought it was the absolute sweetest moments!
