I spoke with Mike by email a bit over a month prior to Mike and Reigny’s proposal, completely unbeknownst to Reigny of course. Mike lives in Alabama and is attending flight school there, and Reigny lives in Arkansas. of course the plan is to come together when their respective tasks are done. But the couple enjoyed a trip to Nashville to spend Valentines day weekend together.
Mike and Reigny met at college in Arkansas, where they attended a study group together. They didn’t know each other going in, but they could only ignore the chemistry for so long. When they finally went out, they talked until the wee hours, which caused both of them to miss class the next morning. But that’s a small price to pay, since now their relationship and story of their love is cemented.
I love proposals because it shows me guys really can be spontaneous and creative. Reigny knew this was coming at some point, but never was able to predict that a random wall across the bridge from the restaurant to the car would be the unexpected magical moment of their lives. There is without a doubt a bright future for them, and it was my pleasure to document their monumental event. Through the eyes of a journalist, without the stiff poses and contrived feelings. Natural human emotion and love. I hope you’ve enjoyed Mike and Reigny’s proposal, congratulations and stay in touch or else I will keep texting you at 3 AM 😛
