Erin & Hannah {Fisherman's Island} Charlevoix, Michigan

It was in August when my sister Erin’s girlfriend Hannah pulled me aside at one of our hang outs, to tell me she had plans to propose to my sister. She asked for my blessing, and I was overwhelmed with gratitude that she would ask me. Such a question is humbling, and it just shows the kind of woman Hannah is … ❤️

But it wasn’t until the end of September that she popped the big question, and I jumped at the chance to be there, alongside of them both, for one of the biggest moments of their lives.

She decided to propose at their favorite spot, on the beach at Fisherman's Island, in Charlevoix, Michigan. The weather was quite questionable when I got there, but the winds calmed, and as they danced to their favorite song, the sun started to peak from behind the clouds ... Hannah got down on one knee and made my sister the happiest girl in the world.

It was an honor to be there, for such a beautiful moment, and I’m so incredibly grateful that these two found each other in this crazy world. Love is truly, all you need to change the world. And I think these two can change it with how fiercely they love each other!

Congratulations Erin and Hannah. May you continue to set each other's souls on fire. ❤️

A Surprise Proposal {Simonton Lake} Indiana

Back in October, we were contacted by the father of that pretty little lady in red. He wanted to disguise a surprise proposal as a family photo shoot, for Christmas! Well, needless to say, we were definitely up for the big moment!!

After arriving at their beautiful home on Simonton Lake, the stage was set for the grand entrance of the groom-to-be, Alex.

There were some wonderful videographers there as well, to capture the moment on film, so we decided to tell the lovely Gina that they were there to photograph alongside of me, kind of like job shadowing. Gina's dad thought of that perfect idea, and it worked!

So, we started to snap some family portraits. Moving around the lake, laughing, chatting, and of course, having some fun, and that's when Alex, along with his family made their grand entrance. It was a wonderful entrance, and Gina was completely surprised! There were tears, laughs, and beautiful smiles. It certainly was a perfect moment.

Grateful to be there, to celebrate this wonderful day with this incredibly kind, beautiful couple, and their sweet families. Thankful, always so thankful that our paths cross with such amazing people.

Congratulations Alex and Gina!!
