christmas proposal

Let me preface: I tear up every time I scroll through these images.

Mike called us at about 9 in the morning, quickly explaining that he’d like to surprise his girlfriend at the airport. “Cool” I said. “When?” “Her flight gets in at 1PM and she thinks I’m in another state.” “Oh!” Camera gear always in the trunk, I tracked her flight, met Mike, and discussed the logistics of how he’d like to surprise her. Making small talk, I’m like, “Are you going to ask her to marry you over the holidays or something?” “Actually, right now. I have the ring in my pocket.” “Oh! Shit! I feel dumb. Let’s do this!” The rest is below, and it is utterly romantic. Congrats Mike & Maggie.
