Sophia, Alphonso and I go way back. Like when I first moved to Atlanta in 2011 and was starting out in photography and asked them to do a portrait session with me — way back – Click HERE for their session with me (::cringe:: Talk about growth! – haha)
Sophia and I go back even further — like back in high school (sweet memories).
The love of Sophia and Alphonso authentically beautiful from when I first met them to now. You can tell Alphonso really loved Sophia and wanted to give her the world! Their proposal story began back in July of 2016 when Alphonso contacted me and told me he want to propose to Sophia. I told him I am all for it! Fast forward to December 2016 Alphonso was ready to make it happen! So being that I have photographed them in the past, Alphonso made it seem that they were getting ready to do an updated portrait session with me. So we roamed around Atlanta Botanical Gardens and did a beautiful portrait session throughout the garden. Even though it was so cold – they handled it like champs!
After we made it half way through the garden Alphonso found a quiet bench to take another photo. He started off by saying “Best Friend…” and the rest is history.
Their engagement story was featured on How He Asked. To read more details of how the day went from Sophia’s eyes – click HERE.
I am so blessed to photograph their engagement session in Miami and wedding which will be this FRIDAY in JAMAICA!!!!!!
Check back tomorrow for their engagement session post!
The moment when Sophia realized why I was really there! Priceless!!!
How gorgeous is this ring!?
Congrats again Sophia and Alphonso!!!!
