Engaged on Disney’s Boardwalk with Tena and Niko
Tena & Niko decided to celebrate their engagement with a session at the Disney Boardwalk in Orlando, Florida right at sunrise for some gorgeously-glowy photos. They will be celebrating a Filipino wedding later this year! They were such a fun, patient couple to work with, and talk about location! Anyone who loves Florida knows that Disney already has a magical feel, so choosing the Disney Boardwalk for an engagement session was such a bonus for me! Talk about the perks of the job, right?
Their Proposal Story:
It was my first time at Brooklyn Promenade, or should I say our first time there together…We went at the perfect time. I was still convinced nothing would happen because he wasn’t giving anything away. I couldn’t read him this time…We walked over to where the carousel is and I seriously thought we were just soaking in the gorgeous scenery around us. Niko loves sightseeing so I just thought it was one of his adventures of exploring moments. Well, we were leaning over the pier and I notice that there’s this guy behind us, who’s taking pictures on his camera. I didn’t think anything of it because people always take candids of random people lol and looking over my shoulder, the guy was but was trying to be nonchalant about it. Next thing you know, he’s down on one knee, and says, ” I know I don’t deserve you, but if you let me, I will prove to you the rest of our lives that I do.” I saw the ring and tears just started flowing and everything just unfolded from there.
The guy that was taking pictures – it turns out that Niko knew the whole time – and he went into full blast picture mode at that moment! Turns out, he is one of his childhood friends. And what topped it off, his God-brother came running out of nowhere recording video and surprised us both and said I couldn’t have missed them for anything! It was truly the best moment of my life and he planned it out so perfectly and ultimately, was a huge surprise. And so our love story is ready for the next chapter.
