Hello darling readers, today’s downtown Toronto engagement session is a pretty exciting one for 2 reasons; the bride is a friend of mine and the she found her photographer (Samantha Clarke Photography) through Knotsvilla’s Instagram! If that is not enough to flip out in excitement I really don’t know what is!
Promise and Akinola’s Downtown Toronto engagement is a typical Samantha Clarke’s work; perfection! City engagements are clearly one of my favorites especially when they are shot in the busyness of the city like today’s session.
About the Couple & the Proposal
Promise first met Akinola at MET school in Lekki – Lagos, Nigeria in 2003 when they were both preparing for their SAT exams. In 2005 after they both left Nigeria, they lost touch and reconnected with each other again later in 2011.
Akinola proposed on Valentine’s Day to Promise in a very simple and romantic way. With grilled suya (her favorite – a Nigerian food), roses and chocolate, he woke her up, got on one knee and then asked her to be his wife.
