Anthony and I had been planning this for months. We even had super secret code words and hand gestures. Just like real spies. But when the day arrived, and then THE MOMENT, I think we were just as nervous as he was! Maybe more. See, Anthony knew he would be marrying Shavonn. He couldn’t imagine a life without her. So he planned to ask her to be his wife. On camera! Our cameras.
Shavonn and Anthony started out as friends. Best friends. They literally told each other everything. So when they began to realize that they wanted something more, they already knew that they would get along and that things would be great. The next New Year’s Eve sealed the deal, when they agreed to go out on their first official date. They had so much fun that night, and they’ve been together ever since!
Four years later, Anthony and Shavonn wanted a photo shoot to document their love. They love travel and road trips, and they’ve had many a date night here in Memphis. So it was completely natural for them to spend a weekend in the city and take a few photos! Shavonn was more than willing to get all dolled up for the occasion, but little did she know that there was an ulterior motive to this particular photo shoot! Read on to see how it all played out…
Lucky for us, Anthony turned out to be even more hilarious than he was on the phone, so we all had a great time hanging out. We didn’t stop laughing!!
Their love just glows!
Oh, the JOY!
After a quick change, we made our way down to the river for sunset. All but one of us knew what was soon to come…
There’s a reason his hand is behind his back!
Then this happened.
She said YES!!
We had time for just a few more photos after the actual proposal, and Shavonn couldn’t stop smiling! I don’t blame her!
When we were done, Shavonn and Anthony couldn’t wait to pick up the phone and share the news with their closest family. It was such a sweet, special moment, and we are so glad we got to be there for it! Anthony, I don’t know how we managed to pull everything off without a hitch, but we did! You are a lucky man – Shavonn is a rare find! Thank you to both of you for sharing such an intimate moment with us! We love you both, and we are so excited for the wedding!!
