Hello friends! I hope you had a wonderful Labor day weekend! Excited to share Jocelyn and Eddie’s engagement session on the blog today. From the very first time i spoke to Jocelyn over the phone i felt a very natural and positive vibe from her. I met Jocelyn and Eddie for the first time on the day of the shoot and i truly enjoyed hanging with them. Looking forward to celebrating with this amazing couple on NYE! Check out their love story below and images below. Enjoy!
Jocelyn and Eddie first met while attending college. After a year of developing a friendship their feelings for each other blossomed into true love. Their Atlanta engagement session features casual outdoor and formal city settings that compliment not only their stylish attire, but also their unwavering love and affection for each other. They are looking forward to saying “I do” in front of family and friends, and starting their new life together as husband and wife.
Eddie and Jocelyn met in 2012 while visiting with her sorors the institution that Eddie attended, Fort Valley State University. Fort Valley football was playing Clark Atlanta University (where Jocelyn attended school). After about a year of knowing each other, they starting dating in August of 2013. In 2016, Eddie and his twin, Edward, turned 26 on the 26th. This was an extra special year so they (Eddie, Edward, Latasha, & Jocelyn) decided to celebrate in Atlantic City, NJ. Tasha and Jocelyn worked to make sure they had activities planned and that dinner reservations were made. Little did Jocelyn know, the whole time, everyone was going behind her back making plans of their own. He reached out to her parents before they left because Eddie said this would be the only time he would be able to surprise Jocelyn because she is so nosey. They reached out to two of Jocelyn’s best friends and cousin in New York to make sure she had family and friends there to enjoy the moment with them. As they were sitting down, getting ready to eat dinner, Jocelyn heard a voice behind her and instantly knew it was her best friend. She jumped up from the table, stunned. She didn’t even notice that her other friend slid in the seat beside her. Jocelyn looked over to see her and she ran. Eddie comes behind her, trying to get her to come back into the room. She immediately starts to cry because she thought he was surprising her with her own friends on his birthday. To her surprise, it was something totally different. He proceeds to tell Jocelyn, “Relax, I have something that will make you happy.” With her parents and all of her close friends there, and on Facetime, Eddie pulled the ring out, got down on one knee, and asked Jocelyn to marry him. She happily said “YES!”
