Engagement Sessions

Timeless Style: An Engagement Session in Miami, FL

Tristian and Harold’s love story began in November 2016 at a popular live music  venue in Atlanta called Whisky Mistress. It was Harold’s event, and the two found out they had mutual friends. After being introduced to each other, they exchanged phone numbers but didn’t reconnect until a couple of months later. Six years later, Tristian and Harold are preparing to enter a new chapter in their lives as husband and wife.

Engagement Story 

Our engagement happened on New Year’s Eve 2021 in St John, USVI. It was a huge surprise to Tristian because we were there to celebrate the new year and the eight year wedding anniversary and new engagement of two other couples. 


For the Groom: Walk us through the behind the scenes of creating this  special day:

My original plan was to propose in Cabo; however, we had to change our plans unexpectedly and went to the U.S. Virgin Islands instead. We literally booked the flight and hotel on December 29 and left the next morning! My original plan always included proposing at midnight, but everything closed in St. John at 10 p.m. I had to propose wherever we were at midnight, which ended up being in our hotel room with our friends. I wish the circumstances had worked out in a more grand fashion, but I was keen on the symbolism of leaving my girlfriend in 2021 and walking into the new year with my wife-to-be.

Were there any memorable moments during the shoot? 

In typical South Florida fashion, it rained a lot the night before. Tristian planned on wearing her natural hair pressed out, but her hairstylist for the shoot asked her to wear her hair curly instead. As we were headed to the shoot, it began to rain, and we waited in our photographer Travis’s car praying we would get the shoot done in the time frame allotted. After a while, it stopped, and it ended up being just perfect.

What are you most looking forward to about your wedding? 

The  reception! Since Harold is known for his events, everyone is looking forward to having a great time. 


Congratulations to the happy couple! We wish them many years of wedded bliss.
