Auzdon has been one of my good friends since the sixth grade and we have watched each other grow up over the years. When he asked me to photograph his surprise proposal to his girlfriend, Megan... well, you can imagine the waterworks. Seriously, I couldn't even talk to people about how excited I was because my eyes would always water! He is one of those friends that deserve the entire world, and I'm so glad he's found it in Megan. Auzdon, an Army officer who was stationed in South Carolina at the time, hatched an elaborate plan to fly all the way across the country to surprise her. Auzdon's sister, Brittney, so cleverly found an excuse to walk to the rooftop with Megan, where Auzdon was waiting. The look of pure shock/love/excitement on her face still gets to me, and everyone was caught up in how romantic that moment was. On a funny note, this all happened a couple hours after a HUGE thunderstorm here in Seattle, and the weather was similar to the weather they had on their first date. Obviously she said, "Yes," and after several moments of hyperventilating and hugging, we went back downstairs to celebrate with a glass of champagne. Even still, when I think about how special that day was for everyone involved, I get a little choked up! I can't wait to see what this next chapter has in store for these two, and they have a very special place in my heart.
