Morela and Derek
How We Met
We met in Miami at the Perry Hotel on South Beach 5 years ago. After a huge renovation, I believe this hotel is now called the 1 Hotel, but it still has a special place in our hearts.
How He Asked
We have been together for 5 years and our 5th year anniversary was when I wanted to pop the question to my long-term girlfriend, Morela. I decided to propose to her at the W Hotel rooftop in Fort Lauderdale as although we met in Miami, we started our relationship at this venue. Therefore, it was extra special for us both.
So I decided to book a photographer to capture this special moment and chose Andrea Harborne Photography. She has captured many proposals over the years and we communicated several times before the date to ensure we were both on the same page. Andrea understood what I wanted to capture during the session; our genuine love and respect for each other and to document this sentimental moment so we can look back on in the future.
