Chris's Surprise Sunrise Proposal to Kimberly in Wilmington, North Carolina

Their Story

Kimberly came to visit Chris in North Carolina, where he was recently stationed. He had been planning for this surprise for quite some time, and with a little help from Kimberly's friend, Jessica, he picked out the perfect ring, a diamond three-stone engagement ring with a delicate diamond band, thoughtfully customized with both of their birth stones on it. 

He had told her they were going to have a couple's portrait session that he got a deal on, saying "they never take pictures together, and it was something to do while they were visiting Wilmington. " What she didn't know was he had a sunrise proposal planned, complete with  mimosas on the pier! 

It was such a gorgeous summer morning to pop the question!! Everything was perfect, and I am so thankful that I was there to capture this special moment!!

Congratulations Kimberly and Chris!!


Brittany was amazing. I proposed to my fiancé that weekend. I wanted it to be both a surprise and also have it recorded. I’m newly stationed in Fort Bragg so I haven’t ever been to Wilmington and wasn’t familiar with the area. Brittany helped me plan the proposal and gave me the idea for how to make it a surprise. She even brought champagne and OJ on ice for mimosas on the pier! She’s awesome.
