Hello Tuesday! Today’s real engagement shoot features two things I can’t get enough of- a stylish couple AND Beyonce. I mean, it’s no secret how much I love king bey so you can imagine how excited I was to see an engagement shoot centered around Beyonce and Jay Z’s On the Run tour. Yodit and Andy are complete opposites, one is a social butterfly and the other is more of an observer. Like opposite ends of a magnet, their lives drew to each other and the rest as they say is history. Bride to be Yodit is an event planner and a fellow Beyonce enthusiast so when the time came to plan their engagement shoot- the theme was a no-brainer. With nods to “Feyoncé”, Brooklyn, face masks and “I’ve been drinking”…This On the Run themed session has adorable written all over it and we just had to share.. Enjoy!
How He Asked
The evening of Monday, May 19th he slipped the ring on my finger while I was sleeping and when I woke up the next morning around 6:30am and rolled over to wake him up I noticed something sparkly on my hand. At first, I thought it was a dream but then I started screaming when I saw the ring on my hand was real and he turned and he popped the question.
It was probably one of the most romantic surprises he has ever done. So back story on the ring is every year he surprised me in some way with something from Tiffany’s ever since we started dating with necklaces, earrings, bracelets, etc but never a ring. So he told me that he wanted to make sure the proposal was just as special as all those surprises and it definitely was because I noticed my new Tiffany Embrace ring and that I was going to spend my life with him forever.
Inspiration for the Shoot
After the proposal, I sent all my girlfriends a text ” I woke up like this!” with a photo of the ring on my hand!! Since they all know how much I love Beyonce I thought it would be fun to surprise them and do a photo shoot and replicate the “On The Run” tour poster for our wedding save the date. I came up with the idea after one of my best friend’s told me that when she heard “Part II (On the Run)” by JayZ featuring Beyonce it reminded her of Andy & I’. Once I saw the ski mask image and listened to the lyrics I completely understood what she meant and the concept for the shoot was born. Who wants a perfect love story anyway?
To close out this epic engagement shoot, we bring you Yodit and Andy’s save the date. Yes, I’m in love!
