Chateau Chantal Proposal Photographer | Michael Proposes to Taylor

After becoming comfortable with proposals at this winery, Nicole Geri Photography is now recommended as a Chateau Chantal proposal photographer.

As a proposal photographer in Traverse City, I love all the unique places there are to pop the question. Michael wanted to propose to his girlfriend Taylor while they were visiting Northern Michigan. It worked in perfectly with their wine tour on Old Mission Peninsula, although the weather had different plans. With heavy rain in the morning, we had to postpone the proposal to later in the evening. Michigan’s weather is unpredictable, but that’s what makes our sessions unique. A few hours later, the clouds were still dark and moody but the rain was done just in time for Michael to propose to Taylor at Chateau Chantal.

Michael and Taylor enjoyed their weekend vacation in Traverse City. Today they were wine tasting on the Old Mission Peninsula. Taylor had no clue that a proposal photographer was waiting for her with Michael soon to propose at Chateau Chantal. After a tour of the vineyard, they arrived at the trellis overlooking the Grand Traverse Bay. It was then that Michael got down on one knee to ask Taylor for her hand in marriage. Still in shock, it wasn’t until Michael introduced me that Taylor realized there was a photographer there to capture this proposal. I was hiding behind the wall up until this point after all.

She knew about the ring, but not when the act would happen. They laugh now that it all came together.

Michael and Taylor enjoyed a beautiful proposal at Chateau Chantal, and I got to photograph the special occasion.
