Jazelle and Samuel
How We Met
Jazelle and I met on Instagram. I created a “blasian” Instagram account to connect all blasians around the world. I would follow all blasians and shout them out on that page for people to follow them. Jazelle being blasian as well found my personal page from that blasian Instagram page. She ended up commenting on one of my photos and the rest is history.
How He Asked
I knew she liked cherry blossoms a lot. I started planning ahead for our future vacation so that it would line up with cherry blossom season in Japan. After that, I started researching where are good cherry blossom spots in Japan. I ended up liking the concept of proposing then taking a romantic walk through Philosopher’s Path.
The Big Day: The proposal went excellent. I expected it to go very well and it did better than that. I did have a plan with taking the taxi there but that morning of the proposal, I couldn’t find one at first and I did panic a little lol When I did find one, we ended up getting to the proposal spot a little too early.
I took my time walking around the river area where Coo (the Flytographer) was going to be until I found him. Thanks to him taking photos of us from far away, I was able to find him lol Once spotting him, I pointed at the cherry blossom pedals built up in the river by Coo to show Jazelle how awesome that looked. We walked closer till I was close enough for Coo to approach us once we started taking selfies.
His approach to us was flawless, no suspicion whatsoever. Jazelle had no idea this was going to be a proposal from the being all the way until Coo said, “ok now give me a romantic one” and I got on one knee. lol She was very surprised and even cried. I told her we have more pictures to take after this and she stopped crying asap to keep her makeup in place lol We then took more engagement photos along philosophers path and honen temple. The entire session was beautifully done, well executed and we had blast. Can’t thank Coo enough.
