Soooo what can I say about today’s engagement session? Ray & Shirelle, showed up and showed out for their photos! Shirelle looks absolutely stunning in her black dress and Ray very handsome in his suit and we love how he styled his dreads for the shoot. The couple, met up with Nate Veal Photography at the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens for their shoot. The national landmark served as a great backdrop with the fountain filled gardens and landscaped grounds. Read about their proposal below and get inspired by their photos!
From the Bride:
We met via Social media and mutual friends. Ray has a foundation, ChampionShips, Inc. that focus on using sports and education as tools for success for motivating youth. As a former NFL athlete and SEC scholar athlete he created the foundation to encourage youth. Each year during the holiday season he has a toy drive event. Last year we collected over 300 toys for less fortunate children in Haiti though his foundation. At the toy drive event in front of 150+ family, friends and supporters, he thanked everyone for attending and supporting the foundation and blessing the children in Haiti with toys for the holidays, he then went on to say how much I meant to him and etc, next thing I knew he was on one knee, I was totally in shocked. I’m not a crier but I shed all the tears to fill the Atlantic Ocean It was amazing and folks are still talking about it!”
