Charleston Proposal Photography

Hey Y’all! Matt LeGault here guest blogging for King Street Studios. I worked with Todd Surber for nearly a decade before deciding to branch off with my own studio, Charleston Minishoot.

During my time with Todd, we were each pulled towards certain work. Todd gravitated towards portraits; business, families, high school seniors and engagement portrait sessions and I discovered I had a big passion for documenting and photographing the actual proposals. We like to call these “secret proposals” since the bride-to-be has no idea we are documenting the proposal until after the big moment.

I love planning out all the details of this momentous occasion and executing that plan to the delight of my clients. Todd and I have decided that all future work will be handled by me directly through my new studio . So if you’re looking for a highly experienced, passionate photographer to help you through the entire planning process and document your proposal so it can be cherished for generations, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. With years of experience I’ll guide you through the entire process and together we’ll find the perfect time and place for you to take the next step in your journey as a couple.

My process for proposals very simple and designed to make things as stress-free as possible. We plan out the proposal well ahead of time, picking the perfect time and place to suit you and your fiance-to-be. I always arrive on location early to make sure I’m ready when the moment comes. After that magical moment when your significant other says “YES!!!”, I introduce myself and take you around the surrounding area, rounding out your proposal documentation with a variety of portraits capturing your time in Charleston and the emotions of your special day. Once we depart, I deliver a “sneak peek” of the proposal within 24 hours so you can put the word out to friends and family. From there it’s typically about a week to get the rest.

I can’t express how much I enjoy capturing these big moments in people’s lives. If you’re ready to pop the question, and would love to have this momentous occasion documented and sealed in time, please visit my website Charleston Minishoot or contact me directly at 843.754.0222.
