“No One In My Family Was Answering My Phone”

Michelle + David  |  Engaged

Eden Roc Miami Beach Wedding

Love is ALIVE! Romance never goes out of style and I never tire of hearing about your engagement “moment”!

Michelle knew that something was up when David started the day saying “He could not wait to marry me one day”.

Going to class that day, Michelle assumed that David was at work~little did she know that he was busy~ setting up the perfect proposal!

On her way home she realized that no one in the family was answering the phone and that David kept calling. Something inside her said this was it~that it was happening!

“As I stepped out of our elevator rose petals led the way to our door, upon entering our home rose petals covered the floor, candles set the mood and there was David all dressed up waiting for me!”

“I started to cry once I realized what was going on. All I could say was “your not doing this your not doing this!” David dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him and of course I said YES!”

Now what happens next shows me that David values the love and support of family!

“After the best of proposals, David told me to get dressed because we were going to dinner to celebrate. When we got to my favorite restaurant both of our families were there waiting to celebrate with us. David even got my cousin (who is the maid of honor) who lives in California to come in for the night and surprise me!”

Michelle and David will be getting married at the beautiful Eden Roc Resort on Miami Beach in the fall and we are looking forward to an amazing wedding!

For those of you that are engaged, consider an engagement session as a great opportunity to get to know your photographer better. For me it’s wonderful to see how you “dance” together, to observe the little subtle ways that you love each other. With this experience, your wedding photos will truly reflect you two as a couple. Aside from that these images make great Save the Date images, gift portraits for parents and grandparents and it makes for a great guest book that’s as personal as you are!

This just in! After this Blog post was published we got the most amazing note from Michelle!:

“Roy- I can’t thank you enough for doing such a good job with these pictures. Since the pictures went up, I have received so many emails/phone calls telling him how amazing the pictures are. We are so happy with them. I just wanted to say thank you again for everything! You have made us so excited for the wedding because we can’t wait to see how incredible those pictures will be.”

Give me a call and let’s get engaged in an amazing relationship creating great memories of the two of you together!
