Jenive and Tony first met as fourteen year old high school kids, she was a cheerleader and he was a football player. Because she was a shy girl, he managed to get her to talk to him and they quickly became inseparable. It has since been 9 years since and they have become best friends and soul mates. Tony knew she was to be his wife and so he asked her parents one month before he decided to pop the question to help him plan the biggest surprise. His parents planned a huge 2017 New Years celebration, Jenive thought nothing of it, she got dressed up and headed to her parents house surrounded by her family and friends. Exactly one minute before midnight Jenive, along with her family and friends headed to the back patio of her parents house. They enjoyed champagne glasses ready to toast the new year. Just as Jenive walked outside she noticed a sign made out of sparklers that read
"Will you marry me?"
At that moment, Tony knelt on one knee asking for her hand in marriage. Jenive broke down in tears and couldn't believe after 9 years he was finally proposing to her!! Of course she said "Yes!"
As I thought about their engagement session, I wanted to create a session just as romantic and special as their proposal. We decided to use inspiration from the most romantic day of the year... Valentine's Day!
