Jim and Kristina’s Beachside Proposal on Block Island

At their favorite vacation restaurant on Block Island, Jim sat beside Kristina at a table looking out at the ocean waves crashing along the beach, eagerly awaiting for their wine to be brought to the table. It was the secret signal for Rose Schaller Photo, who sat behind them lying in wait, to get her camera ready to capture the entire proposal. The incredibly candid pictures reveal the shock and joy of Jim’s plan — from the moment he reaches into his pocket to fetch the ring as Kristina laughs blissfully unaware that within an instant her life will change forever, to the exact moment she registers what’s happening as Jim drops to one knee, the emotion and realization spilling across her face. After Kristina said yes, Jim revealed the secret that their special moment had been documented, and they enjoyed a celebratory glass of champagne while posing for some pictures to capture that just-engaged glow.
