Long Island Proposal Photographer

I am so excited to share this Port Jefferson surprise marriage proposal!

Chris proposed to Maddie the day after Thanksgiving.

Maddie thought she was going to a party at Danford’s Hotel & Marina for their neighbors – instead Chris proposed marriage!

Maddie was totally surprised and I loved capturing her exuberant reaction!

After Maddie said, ‘Yes!” We took some engagement photos around the harbor.

Port Jefferson Harbor made for a picturesque setting – crisp weather – fall color and the festive Christmas decorations were a bonus.

Well done Chris!

Sharing some of my favorites from their special day!

I arrived early to scout the location for the best spot. I loved the framing of the porch against the harbor with the ferry “ticket booth” to the left.

My awesome assistant was able to keep people from walking in the frame when Chris kneeled.

The seagull is real and not photoshopped – I was thrilled when it flew into the frame. I love how the black and white edit showcases this image.

I always take a photo of the engagement ring with my macro lens.
