On Saturday, I drove up to Traverse City, Michigan, to photograph a friend of mine ask one of the most important questions of his life. Cody had been looking forward to this day for months and I could not be happier he asked me to document this precious moment.

Surrounded by a few of their closest friends, a breathtaking landscape, and the most tasteful wine, Cody got down on one knee and asked Michelle to be his forever. Of course, Michelle happily said yes in the midst of all her emotions.

We spent the rest of the day enjoying eachothers company. Laughs and excitment were shared as Michelle and Cody secretly watched one another, trying to grasp how lucky they were to have forever together.
