Surprise Proposal in Cape Henlopen | DE Proposal Photographer

Buckle up for Nichol + Tylar’s incredible proposal! Tylar sent me an email with his idea to propose to his longtime girlfriend while on vacation in Lewes, Delaware. He sounded so sweet and excited from his email, I couldn’t wait to help make this moment even more special for them. This surprise proposal in Cape Henlopen is truly an all time favorite of mine! Every proposal quickly becomes a favorite, they’re always so special and SO much fun!

If you’ve read my past proposal blogs, you know I’m allllll about creating an elaborate scheme to pull it off. Sometimes I’ve been able to just hide without any scheme, but this one needed a little extra hand in it. I had a friend come with me to “shoot with”, when in reality she was there to help spot Tylar + Nichol, and shoot some behind the scenes of the whole thing! I told Tylar I was going to pretend that our couple was a no show, would conveniently spot their beach date night, and offer to snap a few fun photos for them. Right place, right time riiiiight?

In reality, it was all a big set up to the proposal! Nichol was on board with taking a few photos, and had NO idea what was about to happen. If you look veeery closely in the first couple shots, you can see the ring hanging out on Tylar’s finger! Nichol was SO surprised and even shed a few sweet tears as she realized what was happening. I’ve done a bunch of Delaware beach proposals, but every single one is sweeter than the last.

We took the time to shoot some fun *engagement* photos afterward, and these two could NOT stop smiling! They’re truly some of the best people I’ve met, they are so fun, loving, and sweet. That comes to life in their photos and ya girl cannot WAIT for all the fun of their Jamaica wedding next year!! I’m looking forward to the beautiful celebration and seeing all the love surround them!

Rebecca somehow made us both relaxed and produced absolute magic! She instructed us while still making the photos look candid, reliably captured our "good sides," and brought her unique eye for lighting and settings (pro tip: do whatever she says even if it seems funny or in a different location; it will look utterly amazing). Photos can be an investment and I'm glad we did the research and found the perfect photographer for us.

- Lauren + Hunter

I can't even put into words how amazing Rebecca is. We knew from the moment our engagement photos began that we made the right choice. She is so professional, charismatic, and excited to be a part of your big day.  I would recommend her over and over again!


- Bianca + Kyle

Rebecca was such a joy to work with, our experience with her was absolute perfection from beginning to end! Even from our first conversation, I could tell that she genuinely cares about getting to know her clients and what they prioritize and want to capture on the big day. She was always so responsive and available by phone or email, communication was a total breeze. Rebecca is not only incredibly talented, but a wonderful human being, and we loved working with her. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all future brides!

"Rebecca was a dream!"

It was truly a pleasure working with Rebecca. She is so sweet and easy to work with, we felt so relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. Communication is timely, prices are reasonable. She listened to us and did such a perfect job capturing every moment on our special day. And most importantly - the pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! I can't recommend her enough.

"Love love love Rebecca!"
