I met Sam and Joey at the spot where it all started for them. As we wandered around the campus for their Johns Hopkins University Engagement Portraits, they reminisced about all the important spots. Strolling down memory lane of what significance each building had for them and other little stories they experienced together on the campus. They had met while both enrolled in the Civil Engineer program at Johns Hopkins. As they got more and more into their major courses, they began to have more classes together and their social circles began to meld together. Soon enough they were spending almost all their time together.
When I asked about the proposal story, Sam looked at Joey. Joey had this excitement and said I’ll try to give you the abbreviated story. Guys, obviously I don’t ever want the abbreviated story. Give me all the juicy details! They had plans to go to Italy in March. We all know how that story goes. Once their trip got canceled, Joey decided that it might not be Italy but now were a perfect time to propose and their families would be able to celebrate with them. He gathered 12 roses. But pulled one out. Before Sam went down to her car in the morning, he left the bouquet of 11 roses on her seat with a note. The work day went on as normal. When Sam arrived home, she unexpedtendly walked into an empty apartment. On the table sat a bouquet of roses. The note read, “you might not have noticed this morning but the bouquet was missing a rose. Count the bouquet again and meet me up on the roof.” Sam walked out onto the roof and found Joey. A very cold Joey, it was mid March on the roof of a New York City apartment. He got down on one knee and said, “just like the bouquet missing one rose, I wouldn’t be complete without you. Will you marry me?”
Sam and Joey, thank you for meeting me so early in the morning! Especially after driving in last minute from New York the night before. I’m so glad we were able to squeeze this session back in and make it work! You two were an absolute blast to spend the morning with you and you guys are professional in front of the camera!! Congratulations again on your engagement and for asking me to capture it in the spot it all started!
