SAUGATUCK, Mich. -- A local photographer captured a stellar proposal in Saugatuck on Monday during the Great American Eclipse.

It was something that Jenna Humphreys didn't see coming.  When her now-fiance Jason Redlich told her to take Monday off of work, she didn't know the real reason why.

"I had found out I think a year and a half prior that there was going to be an eclipse 2017," Redlich said. "It was big news for me, because I follow a lot of that space stuff."

He used that "space stuff" to help pull off a very special moment on Oval Beach.

"So we were both looking up with our glasses on, and he said, 'I have to ask you something,'" Humphreys said. "And I take them off, and I turn around, and he's already down on one knee, and I'm just like flabbergasted at this point.  I'm stunned.  I actually think I asked him, 'Right now? Here?'"

Photographer Kim Zahnow captured the proposal on camera.

"I was really excited," Zahnow said. "I loved the way the sun was casting onto the waves. That was legit.  It was just a beautiful extra highlight that I didn't expect in the photo."

The couple doesn't have a wedding date set just yet but tells FOX 17 it won't be a long engagement.
