Traverse City Engagement

Breanna and Will are some of the sweetest people I have the good fortune to know. I had the pleasure of meeting them last year for a couples session in Grand Haven, Michigan. We really got acquainted with one another during this photoshoot. After the session, we hung out and talked well after the sun went down and found that we had very much in common. We have stayed in touch and have even met for coffee since.

A few months after our first shoot, Will and told he was planning to propose to Bre and wanted me to document the proposal. He had planned to propose to her in Traverse City, MI on one of the beaches there. Bre and her family have vacationed at this beach every year since her childhood. The city and the beach where will planned to propose is a very special place to her.

After a few conversations with Will we concocted a plan where I could photograph the proposal on the beach at sunset without being spotted by Bre. Will called me a day before the planned proposal in tears. He had gotten nervous and had already proposed to Bre in an intimate setting. I met them right away and we planned to move the photoshoot to that very day. They met me at the beach and although I did not get the chance to document the proposal, I still was able to capture the organic bliss of the day. These two were so giddy with excitement and it could not have been more perfect.
