Wow, let me just start off by saying I am one of the luckiest wedding photographers in Rhode Island to have crossed paths with these two! I met Erin and Derek a few months ago at a local Newport coffee shop and instantly fell in love with them! We hit it off so well, we literally talked until a co-worker had to remind us that the store was closing.
During our conversation I asked how and where Derek proposed? Derek explained he proposed at Narragansett beach, which is also where they had their first date, and it’s also one of the most beautiful beaches in Rhode Island. He went into detail, wait until you here this proposal story! Not only is it fantastic but it was also WELL thought out! Disclaimer… This will give you goosebumps and may even shed a tear or two!
Derek set out on their boat down the river to set up a private dinner on one of their favorite secluded beaches. With him he had a white sweat-heart table, roses, champagne, music and several go-pro cameras in place to record every moment. How romantic! *SWOON* He then went back to pick up his un-expecting soon-to-be fiancé and again set off down river to surprise Erin. As they arrived Erin soon noticed this was no ordinary trip to the beach and Derek bent down on one knee to ask her to be his wife. She of course said, “YES!” It was purely magical!
Naturally after he shared their story we knew this would be the perfect place for their engagement session. We set sail and headed to their special haven and I couldn’t have been more blessed to be a part of it! Thank you Derek and Erin for the opportunity to hear your story and capture your unwavering love for one another in such an amazing place.
These two EEEK! Keep going there’s more!
This is the exact spot Derek proposed to Erin!
