Destination Savannah Proposals | Savannah Engagement Photographer | Diane Dodd Photography

Destination Savannah Proposals I wanted to share a few images from this past year of destination Savannah proposals. It has been a busy year for capturing romantic proposals in Savannah! I absolutely love being a part of surprise proposals and am honored when I am contacted in advance to schedule a surprise proposal session! A romantic carriage ride ending in Forsyth Park or in one of our beautiful squares is always a great choice! Check out Madison Tour Company to book your carriage!

The plan was to stop in Lafayette Square on their way to brunch where he would surprise her with a ring at the fountain...it went off without a hitch and Ingrid had no idea this was going to happen! They were too cute together! savannah proposal lafayette square   John and Lauren were recently engaged in Historic Forsyth Park. They took a romantic stroll through the Savannah Squares and ended at the fountain in Forsyth Park where John asked Lauren for her hand in marriage! They were absolutely adorable and she was totally surprised. forsyth-engagement-fb-1-2   Spike took Lindsay on a historic carriage tour that ended in Columbia Square. They walked up to the fountain and he dropped to one knee and popped the question. Lindsay was completely caught off guard and her reaction was super cute! Afterwards we wandered around the area for more photos. spike-lindsay   Matt spent most of the day making sure everything was just right and that the ring was perfectly hidden on a sunflower before he proposed to Ashlynn on his family farm. It was such a pretty spot for a proposal! Definitely one of my favorites. metter-proposal   Kyle had told both families that he was going to propose to Emily on the lovely grounds of Bethesda Academy. Members from both families were actually hiding behind a building watching the entire thing. Emily was so shocked after she said " I Do" to see all of the family make themselves known. So great! bethesda-proposal-1   Alex proposed to Sarah on the dock of her parent's home in Dutch Island. She was the only one who had no idea what had been planned! She was completely shocked! Meanwhile, many of their family and friends were hidden in the house watching the whole thing. It was fantastic! dutch-island-engagement-2   Tim and April were guests at the amazing Kehoe House whose staff helped Tim plan the perfect proposal! They arranged for a carriage tour with Madison Tour Company that would take them around the city and then dropping them back at Columbia Square. Tim dropped on one knee after making a wish in the fountain and asked April to marry him. She was completely surprised! Afterwards we walked around the squares for some more photos. savannah proposal engagement   Another lovely proposal in front of the famous Forsyth Park Fountain. Arjun chose to propose the week of St. Patrick's Day, which in Savannah is quite the celebration- so much that the fountain had been dyed green making for some fun pics! I love the black and white of Tess as the realization of the proposal starts to sink in! arjun-and-tess-savannah-proposal   Charles and Cherie were engaged in Forsyth Park in January on the coldest day of the year. It was so cold that day that parts of the fountain had actually frozen into icicles! Despite the chill in the air the proposal went off without a hitch and was just beautiful. You can see some cool photos of the frozen fountain HERE. winter-proposal-1   Another sweet Forsyth Park winter proposal was Sydney and Andrew. The path we had planned for Andrew to walk on to the fountain had been roped off for a wedding, luckily I had time to maneuver over to the other side of the fountain without being noticed at all. PHEW! It all worked out and they were absolutely adorable. You can see more of their photos HERE: forsyth-proposal-5  

Savannah Marriage Proposal | Surprise Engagement | Savannah Photographer

Savannah Marriage Proposal I always love it when I am contacted to secretly be a part of a marriage proposal! This time was no exception and the "groom to be" went all out in this creative and well thought-out plan. Matt chose the gorgeous sunflower field at his family farm as his location for popping the question. He arrived earlier in the day to make sure everything was just right and to carefully attach the ring to a single sunflower that he would surprise his future bride with. Ashlynn thought they were there to do some family portraits and was so shocked when she realized that Matt had an ulterior motive. Everything went perfectly and I am so excited for them- congratulations to Matt and Ashlynn! Are you recently engaged and looking for a Savannah or Tybee wedding or elopement photographer?

Dutch Island Proposal | Savannah Engagement | Alex & Sarah

Dutch Island Proposal Alex emailed me several weeks before he planned to propose to Sarah at her parent's beautiful home on Dutch Island. He put a lot of thought into the whole plan and it went off without a hitch. Sarah and her friends and family all thought they were meeting at the house for a banquet for Sarah's father and had no idea of the surprise proposal Alex had planned. Sarah's father was the only one in on it. Sarah was asked to go out to the dock to get some flowers, and as she was walking back towards the house she was surprised by Alex. He got down on one knee and proposed. It was all so sweet and everyone was so surprised and excited for them! I could definitely feel the wonderful energy from everyone there. Congratulations to Sarah and Alex!

Savannah Proposal | Forsyth Park Engagement Session | Sydney and Andrew

A Savannah Proposal Andrew called me several weeks before he planned to propose so that I could be there to capture the moment. They took a romantic, historic carriage ride with Madison Tour Company, and Andrew planned for them to be dropped off at Forsyth Park. I arrived early to claim my spot on a bench and appear to be a tourist as I studied my map of Savannah. They walked right past me and on up to the fountain where Andrew proposed. Sydney's reaction couldn't have been more sweet! I absolutely LOVE shooting proposals. After she said "I do", we spent the next hour or so walking through the park and squares snapping photos. Congratulations to Sydney and Andrew!

Historic River Street | Savannah Couple’s Session | Chris + Meagan

Chris + Meagan's River Street Couple's session! Chris and Meagan met in Savannah and were married on a Savannah Riverboat. Their jobs are taking them on a new adventure, so they contacted me to document their last photo shoot as Savannah residents. Meagan wanted some fun and creative shots downtown on River Street- she is also a SCAD Grad, so she had some great ideas for "Artsy" images using shadows and reflections. They were so much fun and such an adorable couple! Best wishes in your new town, Savannah will miss you!

Bethesda Academy | Savannah Engagement Session | Kaitlyn & Jon

Bethesda Academy is one of the most beautiful spots for a photography session....and after all these years I FINALLY get to photograph a wedding there! Kaitlyn and Jon will be getting married at Bethesda's Whitefield Chapel in December and it is going to be amazing. We decided to meet at Bethesda for the engagement photo session on a perfect Spring morning.... Kaitlyn and Jon couldn't be more adorable and obviously smitten with each other. The spanish moss, giant old oaks and view of the marsh made for the most picturesque backdrop! Throw in the fact that I got to see a few goats and sheep and you've got one of my new favorite places in Savannah. Congratulations to Kaitlyn and Jon, I can't wait for 12/12/15!

Forsyth Park | Savannah Marriage Proposal | Charles & Cherie

A Savannah marriage proposal in Forsyth Park Charles contacted me several weeks before his planned trip to Savannah to pop the question to his girlfriend Cherie. They would be staying at the Eliza Thompson House, an amazing award-winning Historic Inn.  Little did he know that the evening he picked would be one of our coldest of the year- so cold that the famous Forsyth Park fountain would still be covered in ice from earlier in the day! It sure did make for a beautiful backdrop though. Everything came together beautifully and of course she said yes! As you can see, even a few tourists had to walk over to congratulate them and share in their excitement! After the proposal, Charles had a romantic dinner planned followed by a horse drawn carriage ride from Madison Tour Company. Congratulations to Charles and Cherie! Are you looking for a Savannah Photographer to capture your engagement, wedding or special event?

Forsyth Park Marriage Proposal | Savannah Wedding Photographer

A Savannah marriage proposal in Forsyth Park: Kambrell called me several weeks ago to schedule a couples photo session for himself and his girlfriend, Monique. They would be vacationing in Savannah, and each year for their anniversary they book a photo session to celebrate. But little did Monique know that this year, Kambrell was going to surprise her with an engagement ring! I love it! We met at Forsyth Park, where we took a few adorable little candid shots on the park bench to warm up. Next, I told Monique that I wanted to try something fun that I had seen on Pinterest (that was a big fib!). I told her that they would need to stand back to back, and then on the count of 5, they were to slowly turn around and face each other. She was so cute and literally turned in slow motion, having no idea that when they each turned around and made eye contact, Kambrell would be on his knee with a big 'ole smile and a diamond ring. It was so sweet! Congratulations to Kambrell & Monique!   The warm up- she has no idea what is coming next.
