Becky & Romi: Engagement

April 9th, 2012

It just wasn’t their time. They’ve known each other for years and Becky always thought he was cute, but after a phone conversation a few years ago, she decided he wasn’t for her. Romi lived in Chicago and Becky attended college there, and though they ran in similar circles, it wasn’t their time. After earning her Master’s degree, Becky moved back home to Florida and it wasn’t until then that Romi began contacting her again. They’d speak for hours on end and in one of their conversations, Becky shared her heart and desire to leave for an entire year to Africa for missions work. After hanging up the phone, she felt this could be something more. Romi not only supported her decision to leave, but promised to visit her. Still, the idea of separation so soon in their relationship made Becky wonder if it was really their time. Determined to show her it was, Romi kept his word and visited, skyped, and changed his phone plan to speak to Becky as often as he could. Through everything, the experience brought them closer than ever, and upon returning home, Romi wasted no time. After planning a helicopter ride overlooking the Chicago skyline at sunset, he told her it would be there time forever and slipped the most beautiful ring on Becky’s finger.

Becky + Romi, I just love you guys. Like a lot. Thank you for finding such great locations, being such great models (talking to you Romi!!), and inspiring me to be a better photographer & person. I had such a blast with you guys and as cheesy as it may sound, I fell in love all over again with love. Your joy for life and each other is contagious and was a dream to photograph and witness. You both mean the world to Adi + I and we couldn’t have picked two better people for each other if we tried. Happy viewing and enjoy your slideshow HERE!

Becky found these amazing, fun colorful walls and I absolutely loved the shadows that were happening during that time of day…Romi looking all things handsome and happy.
See what I mean? Contagious. Completely. In. Love. With. These.
I could just hear her laugh from this photo…
Becky, you radiate beauty wherever you go… and your outfit was pretty cute too. ;) We ventured over to South Beach to get more shots around sunset and I couldn’t have been happier with the results.She brings out a side of Romi that no one else can… and he loves her even more for it. Kiss in the middle of a street? How romantical.
