Parking Deck Engagement Session | Brittany + Jayvonn


From the moment I spoke to Brittany on the phone, I knew that her sweet and fun personality would exude in her engagement photos. And when she mentioned that she wanted to include smoke grenades, I was all.the.way.down! Brittany and Jayvonn absolutely rocked their parking deck engagement session! I’m so glad that they trusted the process. See more of their engagement session below!

Parking Deck Engagement Session
How did you and Jayvonn meet?

Jayvonn and I met Junior year of High school. We both shared an interest in ceramics and instantly became good friends. Slowly, we began hanging out and Jayvonn even helped me run for our class homecoming queen. Five years later, after we both completed our college careers, we became soulmates.

How did Jayvonn propose?

On Thanksgiving day 2016, my world changed in an instant. As our closest friends and family gathered in prayer, Jayvonn volunteered to lead in prayer. As he asked everyone to bow their heads, Jayvonn reached for my hand, proceeds to get on one knee and pops the big question that every girl dreams of – Will You Marry Me! With tears in my eyes, of course I said YES!
