Engagement Sessions

From First Date to “I Do”: A Timeless Engagement Session in Washington, D.C.

Love has a way of making ordinary moments extraordinary, and for Natasha and Nijoku, their love story is nothing short of magical. The two met at church in 2017 shortly after Nijoku moved to the area. They had a cordial relationship for years, as they both served in ministry, but they didn’t have eyes for each other right away. When Nijoku joined the youth ministry team that Natasha was leading, they were able to have more conversations, get to know more about one another, and develop a friendship. That friendship blossomed into more over the years and in 2022, they began dating and made it official in May 2023.

Engagement story 

Fast forward to December 29, 2023 the scene was set once again at Robiolina. Nijoku had meticulously planned a proposal that was both heartfelt and personal. As Shalamar’s “For the Lover in You” filled the restaurant, Nijoku presented Natasha with a series of cards. These weren’t just any cards; they were lovingly created and signed by different family members, each one expressing their support and blessings for the couple. It was a beautiful and touching gesture that left Natasha in tears of joy, sealing their commitment to a lifetime together.
