Surprise Beach Proposal - Gulfport Wedding Photographer - New Orleans Wedding Photographer

Proposals are pretty magical. They're made even more magical when the partner doing the asking makes a plan and executes it with a little help from me!


Brandon contacted me a little over a month before he intended to propose the Annamarie. These two are hometown sweethearts from back In Ohio. He enlisted in the military and is currently stationed along the Gulf Coast. He knew he has a short window to propose as Annamarie was flying in for a long weekend to visit. In our messages back and forth, he knew he wanted to prose on the back, but needed to find a spot that was easily accessible, not crowded and somewhere she wouldn't suspect. I found a great stretch of beach, that didn't usually attract a lot of beach goers but, also had shelter, in case it rained.


The weather was absolutely perfect and we stayed in covert communication until they arrived and walked to the spot on the beach. Annamarie was so surprised and when the time was right, I went to congratulate the newly engaged couple and we rocked their newly engaged engagement session!


Check out all fo the gorgeous cotton candy sunset skies and sweet love in Brandon and Annamaries photos!




Location: Gulfport, Mississippi

Photographer: Photography by Tracie

Photography by Tracie is based out of New Orleans, Louisiana and Baltimore, Maryland and is always ready for the next adventure. I have traveled and worked all over the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean. My approach to photography is very non-posed focusing on relationships, not a static 20 poses, and most importantly putting YOU first!

My goal is to create moments that are not in existence for you yet. I crave to create connections with my couples as clients AND as friends. As we embark on this wild ride to “I Do”, WE are going to live our lives out loud showing all the vibrancy joy, and many shades of colorful love you share with the world.

I travel at minimum monthly for weddings, portrait work and with digital creators all around the US and internationally. So, if your dream wedding day is romantic, colorful, offbeat, on a farm, in the city, at a manor, at the bottom of a canyon or on a glacier, I am ready to rock out with you and pour you a glass of champagne to celebrate these magical moments with you. To get the lowdown on my upcoming travel dates or when I’ll be in a town near you, drop me a message here to set up your personalized travel portrait/elopement/engagement session with me!
