Daniel and Janine’s Engagement | Charleston Proposal Photographer


January 28, 2022

Love is in the air this engagement season, and this Charleston proposal was no exception!

Just before Christmas, Jena from Propose Charleston reached out and asked me if I’d like to photograph a rooftop proposal she was coordinating.

A rooftop proposal at the Dewberry Hotel with candles, rose petals, and Marry Me letters from Alpha Lit? At golden hour? I couldn’t say yes quickly enough!

As golden hour set in and we awaited their arrival, the anticipation level was high! No matter how many proposals or weddings I shoot, I still get butterflies in my stomach every time!

Finally, they turned the corner and the look on Janine’s face when she saw the rose petal path lined with candles was absolutely priceless! She could see that Daniel had so thoughtfully planned out every last detail, and the emotion shared between the two of them was oh so sweet!

Daniel gave Janine a chance to catch her breath, and then dropped to one knee and asked her the easiest question she will ever have to answer! She said YES!

Now it was time for the happy couple to celebrate! They popped champagne, shared sweet kisses, and watched the sunset over Downtown Charleston. Can you feel the love in the air now?!

Once Janine and Daniel were ready, we began shooting their mini engagement session! The Dewberry had the most incredible light installation in their entryway that made the perfect backdrop for a holiday engagement session! We spent a few minutes snapping tons of lovely photos, then hugged, said goodbye, and the two of them were off to celebrate! Proposals always go by so fast!

It was truly an honor to capture this proposal, and I wish all the best to Janine and Daniel in their engagement and married life!!
