Adam and Michelle are two new friends that I met this year at our church. Adam told me a few weeks ago that he was planning to surprise Michelle and propose a little early (they had talked about getting engaged sometime this year). He wanted to know if I could hide out and photograph him proposing, and then do some portraits right after. I was thrilled to get to be a part of this important act of love and devotion…and I brought along my friend Tony to help me get some shots as well. Adam is an artist and wood-worker and hand-made Michelle’s engagement ring.
I’m so grateful I got to be a little part of this amazing day for them…and so excited for their journey together. They both have beautiful hearts for loving God and loving people- and I know together they will make a lovely and impactful couple.
Adam had also arranged for the family to hide and come out for a quick celebrating before they shared a little wine and cheese picnic.
Congratulations, my friends! May your life together be full of joy and deep connection and love with God and one another.
