Tinnell & Marcus {ENGAGED!}

Yay! It’s our very first post of an engagement shoot! I’m too excited to be sharing this love story. This photogenic couple is like the real-life Barbie & Ken, and course they are totally crazy about each other. Introducing the lovely and oh-so-adorable, ♥Tinnell & Marcus♥. Enjoy the photos, read about the fun way Marcus proposed and of course you HAVE to watch the video at the end…Yes, video watching is required and you can thank me later! :)

How He Proposed: (Marcus) Every year I have a Shoot2Score Hoops Christmas party so I figured that this year’s party would be the perfect time to “pop the question”. We’d planned to have a prize drawing to give away these little basketball ornaments. I pulled the names out of a basket and had Tinnell hand out the ornaments to each winner.  After the first winner, I pulled her name out of the basket my pocket (and it’s funny because even as I type this my hands are getting sweaty all over again!)…

…as I called her name out she looked surprised and the event planner handed me “her ornament”. She took the ornament, held it up and said, “Wait, what is this?!” By the time she turned back around to me, I was on one knee! She immediately began to cry and say THANK YOU about 20 times, I didn’t hear a yes, so I had to stay down there until I heard her actually say yes!

After taking a while to compose herself, she finally said “Yes!” and we hugged and kissed. When we stood up and turned around, there were literally 50 people with cameras and phones, snapping away. This was the only time I was nervous! I felt like Barack Obama or somebody with all of the paparazzi taking pictures. She loved her surprise, and I got to see her smile, which was the best gift I can ever ask for. 

Moments Before: (Tinnell) Looking back I should of known that Marcus was going to propose. My friend Ashley is really close to Marcus too and she of course knew he was going to propose. She dropped a few small hints but I still had no clue. The day of the party I planned to wear a dress that I had already worn, God forbid, I repeat an outfit lol. She was so adamant that I go get something new, to the point that she drove to my house and then to the mall for me to find a new outfit. The fact that she took that much interest in my appearance should of been a sign but I wasn’t thinking. Other than that I really had no idea that the proposal was going happen!

1st Impression: (Tinnell) “Tall dark and HOT.” My first time meeting Marcus was when he flew me to Germany to visit him while he was playing overseas. I remember when he walked into baggage claim I was thinking “Oh yeah he’s a cutie!” The thing that had me at hello was his smile! That smile can light up a room and to this day it gets me every time!

Pet Names: We both call each other POOH!

“Opposites Attract” or “Birds of a Feather”: We are definitely “Birds of a Feather”! We are a lot alike. Our birthdays are 7 days apart and a lot of times we think alike. We both are social people, LOVE to have a good time, and both have a lot of friends. He’s my best friend and I love being around him!

Okay, if you’re anything like me and can’t get enough of these two…here’s the video that I think just puts the “cherry-on-top” for this yummy post.

Added bonus fact – Can you believe Tinnell did her makeup herself?! She’s a professional makeup artist and let me tell you, the girl is talented! Here’s her website to see more of her makeup artistry – www.tinnellmcintyre.com (1/27/12 Update – It appears this link is no longer active.
