A Romantic Proposal at the Westin Savannah Harbor Juan and Reagan | Savannah, GA

Couple Sessions

I have been DYING to share these photos, and it’s with good reason!!! I had the privilege of capturing Juan and Regan’s beautiful proposal at the Westin Savannah Harbor over the weekend. Quite a few months ago, my friend Kayla from high school reached out to me about photographing her friend Juan’s proposal. She told me that he was planning on proposing to Reagan on their trip to Savannah, and she knew I lived right down the street! We were in communication for MONTHS to finalize every last detail. Juan even worked with the amazing planning team The Yes Girls to make sure the entire day went off without a hitch!

When I arrived to the proposal location, I was floored. The florals, marquee sign and waterfront backdrop with the Savannah skyline were absolutely dreamy. And, to make it even better, Juan had a custom denim jacket made for Reagan with her new last name – plus a ton of their college tees, shirts with their pups on them and Juan’s NFL jerseys to take pictures in. It was SO sweet and thoughtful! I arrived about an hour before the couple to photograph the details and get set-up, then my second photographer Jaden joined me right before the proposal happened! We captured the moment unfold, then spent an hour photographing fun portraits with the couple + their families!

Juan and Reagan: thank you for trusting me to capture SUCH an exciting moment in your lives! I am so thrilled for you two, and I hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites! Have FUN soaking up this season as FIANCES!!

These florals were a DREAM!! All thanks to Kato Floral Designs! 

Juan and Reagan’s sweet friends who flew in to surprise them!

He had the ring hidden in his shoe all day!


All of Reagan’s friends and family were hiding inside…and they came running out to surprise her in this moment!

Reagan’s face when she got a closer look at her ring! LOVE IT!

Juan got nervous during the proposal and didn’t walk all the way down to the sign…so we faked it again for a photo! Haha!

A favorite!!!
