Need method to return Friendly URL from Media Library file on MVC site

Kentico 11 custom C# MVC website. Need to know how to request an image from Media Library but want the so-called Friendly name and not the GUID/GUID/etc name. When an image is selected in the ML it shows the full link and right below that it shows a "friendly" link. That's the one I want to grab in my code. How can I accomplish this?
