Magical Tybee Island Sunrise with an Evening Surprise

I had the opportunity to photograph a sunrise shoot on Tybee Island, GA this past weekend. Let me tell you, God painted me the most beautiful sky and gave us the perfect weather for that morning. The wind worked just in our favor. It wasn't the least bit chilly and the water was actually warm! Even better, Tyler was the perfect model. Everything turned out better than we had hoped for! I still swoon for these images and constantly catch myself looking back to see which one I should share next. They're all just so perfect!

I would absolutely love to have more sunrise sessions. I couldn't think of a better reason to wake up first thing in the morning than to see this view. The smell of the ocean air, the waves crashing and feeling the sand between my toes made my soul oh so happy.. I had just done two photoshoots for events the night before so my husband and I didn't get home until about 11:00pm that night. I was so excited before bed that night for this photoshoot that I got literally 2 hours of sleep! I jumped up straight out of my sleep thinking I had overslept. (Thank God I didn't because I would have missed such an amazing day!)

We got to Tybee before there was any light and we sat there talking catching up on how each other had been doing since high school. Tyler and her boyfriend had been together quite some time now and we were both just waiting for him to pop the question! Little did we know that this day would be even more magical when night came. He asked her that evening to be his wife!! I would say that's a perfect ending to a perfect day.
