How did he propose?

"We had planned a few days away in York, Maine for our anniversary. We arrived on Wednesday, and spent the day relaxing by the ocean. On Thursday, we walked around York exploring the shops. We decided to have a sunset picnic on Short Sands Beach right in front of the Union Bluff where we always stay! After setting up the picnic, blanket and picnic basket included, Kirill asked to take a picture of me in front of the water. I said no, but we could take a picture together. We both stood and I remember him tossing my phone back on the blanket and the before I knew it he was on one knee asking me to marry him! I, of course, said yes! To make things even better Kirill hired a professional photographer (Justin Njus from Creative Heights Media) to capture the moment!"
