Andrea & Joseph | Will Rogers Park | Oklahoma City, OK Engagement Photographer | Michelle Valantine Photography

They had just come from an Anime Convention at Will Rogers Park when we met for our consult, so when we started talking about the details of their Engagement Session, it was easy to determine Will Rogers Park as their location.  We met early Labor Day morning, just when the sun's rays started peeking over the tops of the large trees.  Flowers were blooming all around us in every color of the rainbow.  The perfect setting for a couple in love.

He picked an amazing day to propose...her birthday!  They spent the day with her family, and he asked her parents for their blessing.  When they returned home that evening, he told her that her birthday present was hidden in the kitchen.  She finally discovered it in a very tall cabinet she rarely uses...it was a ring!

Anime Conventions are one of their favorite things to do together.  They enjoy attending about 3 or 4 a year.  In fact, when they first met, their favorite game to play together was Divinity.  She recalled how they used to spend hours playing together, which was valuable time getting to know one another.  They described themselves to me as geeks, but what I saw was a tender and sweet connection.  And it was my pleasure capturing it for them.
