It was back in May, Marcus contacted me about his upcoming wedding in November with his beautiful fiancée’ Abby. It was a honor to hear from him and was even more special that he remembered our conversion about a year ago, Marcus mentioned proposing to Abby and when he was thinking about popping the question. We were both in the same boat; I told Marcus I was in the process of proposing to my now-wife Tiffany. I have always believed everything happens for a reason. Through God’s grace everything has come full circle, to be a part of my friend’s big day and have the opportunity to photograph this special occasion is something very special to me. I originally met Marcus during my days as a basketball referee; from day one we built a great relationship. We love the game of basketball and never got overwhelmed by the pressure and focus that comes with being a basketball referee. I was so excited to finally meet his fiancée’ Abby, I have seen so many great pictures of her and Marcus on Facebook. I could definitely see the love they have for one another!
Marcus proposed to Abby on Valentine’s Day. He proposed after a nice dinner that overlooked Downtown Raleigh. Marcus had Abby grab something from his jacket; he bribed her to get it with an opportunity to receive a foot rub. He knew she wouldn’t want to get up after a nice five course meal. Abby was so surprised, when she reached into his coat pocket and felt a box with a ring in it. Marcus proposed and of course she said yes!
Marcus and Abby are big Redskins fans, as you can see from some of the images from their session. We hope their team has a great season, but for now enjoy some of our favorites from the engagement session at American Tobacco Road Campus.
