There are times we’re *really* happy for the “auto-focus” feature of our cameras. Those times are when we’re crying while trying to take pictures of proposals. One of our oldest and dearest friends, Gary, has found his partner for life, Sasha, and decided to have us document his proposal.
Sasha showed up at Curtis Hixon Park looking to meet Gary to go out for dinner. We were there pretending to take photos of a choir. When the choir started singing their song, though, Sasha immediately realized what was happening. As they sang Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”, she walked to the spot that was set up for her: a blanket with flowers. Gary walked up behind her, and when she turned around and saw him our hearts universally melted.
Of course, she said yes. And we are so unbelievably thrilled for them both.
