Nights like May 14th, 2018 are magical. No bugs, light breeze, tide way out, fluffy sandbar sand, sunny….and the whole beach to yourself! Being a fly on the wall for such a momentous moment in people lives is such an honor especially on the coast of Maine. I can not say enough thank you’s to Charlie for hiring me to be a stalker and photograph his Biddeford Pool proposal story! Hope is a dream girl–and they make a perfect couple. Not to mention their adorable pup, Fiona! Her playful spirit but a well-mannered way was completely irresistible. I tried to look busy taking pics of waves and rocks while secretly watching them throw the ball for their Austrian Sheppard. Then I sprang into action as I saw him attaching something to Fiona’s collar. I didn’t want to get to close for their private moment so I hid behind a rock but here is the rest of the story! They went to med school together at UNE and they rented a cottage right next door to this beach.
