An engagement mixing urban & country style in Mobile, AL
Destiny and Matt’s February engagement shoot with Oracle Imaging & Design reflected both of their personalities by incorporating a modern look in the countryside as well as in an urban setting. They started at the golden hour in a field in Mobile for some beautiful sun-drenched photos and then moved to downtown Mobile as night fell for some edgier shots. Matt is a member of a metal core band called Nothing Till Blood, so this was perfect for him!
In the beginning of January 2013, a mutual friend of ours sent me a pic of “a hot single friend” of his that he brought to a church meeting. I was out with friends at the time and told him to send me a pic, not knowing he would send me the worst possible picture of Matt, so naturally I said, “I’ll pass.” And that’s where it all began. To this day that phrase still gets brought up! It’s pretty funny. A few weeks later I went to that same mutual friend’s show in Birmingham, where I had no clue Matt would be, and we ended up meeting back stage after the show. I was introduced as the “girl who passed him up,” to which he (Matt) endlessly mocked me about all night. From that night on we started talking and haven’t stopped since. 4 months after becoming best friends he asked me to be his girlfriend and 8 months after dating he took me to the spot we will be getting married at before dinner on our “one year since meeting” anniversary. It was pitch black and freezing and out of nowhere these white Christmas lights appeared on the stage, he led me up the stairs and read me a handwritten letter and then got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. It was the best night of my life and I’m so honored to spend forever with the best man in the world! - Destiny
