Calendonia Golf & Fish Club | Lowcountry | Engagement Session | Tomecca and Octavius

Tomecca nd Octavius first were introduced in November 2010 through mutual friends and under some very interesting circumstances. However there wasn't real sparks at that time.  Tomecca felt she needed some time and divine intervention to happen to make sure Octavius was the "one". Guess what...there was some divine intervention in the works. With her friends and the divine intervention working in the background. She was starting to noticed how much her friends liked Octavius, but most importantly how much they had cared for him. So Tomecca finally gave it a shot and gave Octavius her number. The first phone conversation lasted for hours which planted a seed for something amazing to come.

After that first call followed many more calls with great conversations that led to a meaningful friendship.  That friendship turned into an amazing relationship. This relationship was done the old fashioned way. They did what the old people called "courting."  The first date was February 15, 2011 at an Italian restaurant in which they enjoyed dinner and talked until the doors were closed. Even the waitstaff knew something special was brewing because they just cleaned up around Tomecca and Octavius and never interrupted or asked them to leave.  They just let them fall in love right then and there. The rest was history after that.

So fast forward 5 years to February 14, 2016.  Octavius wanted to make this Valentine's Day special. So for this special day he decided to take Tomecca to the same restaurant where they had their first date 5 years earlier. Requested the exact same booth they sat in for that very first date; and they had great conversation like they had on that very first date. However he had something little more special to add to this night.  So at the end of this night he wanted to make the love of his life, his wife. He knew he had a special woman who would be there for him and love him just as much as he loved her. Those long late night conversations turn into friendship. That friendship blossomed into love. Now that love will manifest into a beautiful marriage in April of this year.

These guys are amazing together. They love so many of the same things and love to be by each other's side. You can't help but love them too. However there is one thing they both know I don't like about them...their LOVE for those DALLAS COWBOYS! (I should have charged them extra); but I will let that slide. Can't wait to photograph their moments that will tell their love story!
