This couple's engagement shoot photos show EXACTLY what love is

This couple's engagement shoot photos show EXACTLY what love is


Written by Katie Byrne


We absolutely love this couple's adorable story...

 

Okay - we absolutely ADORE this.

Texan bride-to-be Jessica Chinyelu is marrying her long-term love Hilary Anibowei later this year. The couple have been dating since 2009, and got engaged when Hilary popped the question in September 2015.

As many couples do, the pair decided to book an engagement photoshoot to capture their excitement and happiness as they count down to the biggest day of their lives.

The couple booked RH Photoarts to capture the shoot - and as the couple twirled around in front of the camera, this happened.

 

Just remembering when we took our engagement pics with @rhphotoarts. It was such a fun time especially when my wig fell off trying to capture the perfect shot. We laughed and my boo just picked up my wig like nothing ever happened and we kept it moving! Can't wait to say I do to this man! #TheAniboweis ????????????????????

In the sweet post on Instagram, Jessica wrote: "Just remembering when we took our engagement pics with @rhphotoarts.

The gorgeously honest post quickly became an online sensation, receiving over 11,000 shares on one Facebook page alone - with Jessica and Hilary both blown away by the amount of publicity the post received. The bride-to-be told Buzzfeed: "We all died laughing,” she said. “We laughed so much that we had to sit down and take a break".

Speaking about their relationship, Jessica revealed: "The very first thing [Hilary] said to me was ‘my wife’. He then proposed to me in [September] last year".

She concluded: "When you look at the type of things that people post on Instagram it’s always perfect. But sometimes when you get lost in the moment and be free you can still have perfection. Even with your wig falling off".
