Marisa was determined to win the photo shoot giveaway from Shauna Lynne Photography. She was so determined, in fact, that she entered multiple times and got to know the photography on a first name basis, discussing possible locations and style tips for the shoot. Her reason? Some day, she said, she hoped to “use” the shoot. Little did she know that day would come even sooner than she could have dreamed.

Casey, her boyfriend, thought this shoot would be the perfect time to pop the question. And it turned out he was right. January in Florida can be unpredictable, but this day proved cool, breezy and clear. During the shoot, the love between the couple was evident, one of the “most heartwarming” shoots their photography has ever done.

And then came the moment Casey got on one knee. He’d picked the exact moment when he knew the lighting would be perfect. Maria, overcome with joy and emotion, kept asking him if he was serious. It was an engagement that the couple and the photographers will never forget. And a moment captured forever.
