When these two arrived for their engagement session, they were all smiles! They wanted their love captured throughout uptown Charlotte, so they started at one of the most popular parks in the area and worked their way over to the skyscrapers. It was a session full of laughter, good times, and all the sweetness.

How did the two of you meet? We met in the summer of ’99, my sister was dating his uncle at the time and they introduced us. We dated from 9th grade up until my sophomore year in college. We reunited when Chaz’s uncle (the one who introduced us) passed away in in 2014 and have been inseparable ever since! What is your proposal story? I thought I was taking Chaz to Capital Grille for his birthday. As we walked up to the restaurant he began to shower me with compliments about how great of a girlfriend I was and then he said it’s time we take it to the next level. He got down on one knee and pulled the ring box out of his pants leg and asked me to marry him. I said yes and after we embraced we were met by photographers snapping our picture like paparazzi. Unbeknownst to me, he has a cousin who is a photographer and had hired him to capture the proposal. After the photo shoot we walk into the restaurant where all of the staff congratulated us. As they ushered us to our seats, we were met with cheers and applause by 20 of our closest family and friends. I was overcome by emotion, definitely the best surprise ever! Here I thought we were going to celebrate his birthday but it was our engagement and engagement dinner instead. 🙂 Tell us about your ring? 2 carat princess cut diamond ring surrounded on each side by 5 round diamonds on the band. Tell us about your outfit: My high low dress is from boohoo, bracelet from Michael Kors Chaz’s shirt and trousers are from the Men’s Warehouse, shoes are by Guess
