Now and then, I recognize that as a photographer, I am fortunate in that I share in the joy, happiness, and intimacy of others. Not only share but to immortalize joy, happiness, and affection.

Catie and Mark’s proposal shoot, at the Ocean House, Westerly, Rhode Island, had all of these elements: joy, happiness, and intimacy.

During our time together, I discovered that Caitie was a big Taylor Swift fan. Coincidentally, Taylor Swift has a summer house that is along the beach from the Ocean House. So, we had to take a shot with Taylor’s house in the background; we just had to!

I hope you enjoy this selection of photos from the shoot.
