Spring Engagement Session | Brittnee and Mandale

March 29, 2021

After months of planning and waiting (and a reschedule due to rain), we finally got to meet Brittnee and Mandale! These two are so much fun to be around! I love when we meet a new couple and they instantly feel like we’ve known them for years! That’s exactly how it was when Brittnee and Mandale met us on a downtown Raleigh street!

I love that they like to laugh and have fun with one another! We were seriously laughing almost the entire time! We met at some of my favorite spots in downtown Raleigh. We even found a new alley that was pretty cool for engagement photos too! I was excited to see that some of the trees and flowers had started blooming! I’m obsessed with everything that remotely looks similar to a cherry blossom right now!

After their engagement session was over, they invited us to grab food and drinks at a spot that we walked past earlier in the evening! That was a lot of fun! Brian and I can’t wait to celebrate with these guys very soon! Keep reading to learn how Mandale popped the big question!

Tell us about your proposal!

We had talked about marriage a few times and i knew that one day it would happen, just not when it happened. I came to North Carolina to visit family for the weekend. That Sunday Mandale told me that his mom wanted to talk to me when I got back to Virginia. Of course I couldn’t say no to her. When I got back in town I went by his mothers. I get there and he’s fully dressed sitting in the house. Button up shirt, shoes, everything. I get there and I’m like ok where’s your mom. So he starts talking about how much he loves me and my children and how he wants the best for me and that he thinks it’s time to move forward. In my head I’m thinking omg are we breaking up. Then he says, “when I say move forward I mean move forward together.” He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was completely speechless.
