proposal at the Harbor Inn, Marina, and Spa | eastern Maryland proposal photographer - Kenneth Jackson

July 22, 2015: marriage proposal at the Harbor Inn, Marina, and Spa in St. Michaels, MD

On July 19, I trekked over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to photograph a marriage proposal at the Harbor Inn, Marina, and Spa in the quaint town of St. Michaels, MD.  Hopefully I'll get a chance to visit again, because the harbor was picturesque.

Joey, a professional photographer himself, snuck outside while his girlfriend Jennifer was getting ready for dinner.  I scoped out a great spot on one of the piers near the inn.  After a few test shots, he went back inside and brought her out.

I sat at a table near the piers and acted like I was browsing on my phone.  Once Joey and Jennifer passed, I snuck next to one of the boats a few piers away from the designated spot.  (Thankfully, I didn't drop my gear into the bucket of live crabs at my feet.)  Joey stalled with a few selfies while another tourist walked down the same pier.  Then, it was "go" time!

After Joey pointed me out to Jennifer, we snapped a few posed shots.  The two with the boats filling the background are my favorites.  :-)  Then, they went to a nearby restaurant to celebrate their engagement.

Throughout our session, I was moved by the deep affection that Joey and Jennifer showed each other.  They're obviously a great match.  I wish them all the best as they start a new chapter in their relationship!
