Devin + Fayoce: Southern Plantation Engagement Session
Devin and Fayoce are a cute couple with a cute engagement session thanks to one of our favorite Atlanta photographers, Milanes Photography. Their engagement session was inspired by a magazine photo shoot they stumbled across of Will and Jada Smith. It wasn’t just the photoshoot that caught their eye…it was the gorgeous location. So they drove all the way from Atlanta to Charleston, South Carolina to a southern plantation – the gorgeous backdrop for this engagement session.
From the photographer, “Once we arrived to this outdoor location, it rained the WHOLE time. We managed to pull off the shoot regardless of the rain and mosquitoes. It came out better than we had imagined!”
On how they met…
“We met in college while attending the University of Central Florida in Orlando at a football game. Four years later Fayoce proposed. I was in training to relocate to Atlanta for work and he was coming to visit for the weekend. He told me he had orientation for his new job in Atlanta so he’d be tied up all day, but he had a friend who worked at a really nice spa in the area who was going to give me a massage. I got out of training late and was speeding to make the appointment, my mom was in town and he figured I should go with my best friend. I was finally able to relax for the day during my wonderful massage. When I was heading up to my hotel room I sent Fayoce a text that I was going to take a nap until he got off. I was exhausted, I’d been awake since about 6am that morning. When I walked in the hotel room there were rose petals on the floor and a card in the middle of a heart on the bed. I was so tired though that I washed my face and put on pajamas before reading the card. It had a Corinthians verse on it, and told me to be downstairs for pickup. I had about 20 minutes! When I got downstairs there was a towncar waiting playing a song that Fayoce made for me for my birthday when we first met. I arrived at my favorite restaurant where my prince was waiting. We finished dinner and he drove me to a beautiful church with a little outside chapel area, and he got down on one knee to ask me to spend my life with him.”
