A random couple of beautiful April days this month did not disappoint and I was happy to have been able to spend them outside shooting. Ryan reached out about his plan to propose to his girlfriend Jodi and mentioned his family had a home in Glen Arbor growing up and he always envisioned popping the question up here in Northern Michigan. The evening of April 13 we had a beautiful 70s and sunny evening and we were in communication about meeting at Glen Haven beach and to be safe I wanted to be sure we were in more of a secluded area of the beach so there weren't people all around but turns out the beach was completely desolate and they were able to have a super private moment, aside from me chilling on a beach chair with no one else in sight. I remember them walking by and Jodi waving hi having zero clue what was about to happen next!
The moment it happened Jodi was jumping up and down so giddy, honestly it was one of the most genuine sweet reactions I have seen. There were tears, excitement, love and a whole lot of surprise! In Jodi's words, 'honestly I didn't know if it would ever happen so I am so happy, I can't believe it!' something like that. :)
Congratulations to these two and happy wedding planning!
