We often do photo shoots with our friends to help them with their portfolios, websites or social media when they are looking to do couples’ pictures. Our favorite photographer (and good friend) texted me and asked me if we could do a shoot. Little did I know, Michael and the photographer had it all planned out.

When the photographer found the perfect spot, she told him that the view was gorgeous, which was their code for Michael to put the ring box in his pocket. She had us do several different shots and then posed me in front of Michael. We were posing, and the photographer told me to turn around and face Michael. When I turned around, he was down on one knee crying. I was so surprised that I could not stop crying and smiling at the same time. Thank you for making me the happiest man alive every single day. I can’t wait to be your husband! —Javier, one half of the couple
