So that just happened! My sister from another mother, Jonah, just got proposed over the weekend. Jonah is a very special person to me. So I was kind of worried whom she’s going to end up with. I want “The Best” for her. I want her to be genuinely happy, because she just deserves it. She’s very warm, kind-hearted and she puts other people first before herself. A truly selfless person. I can’t count how many times she has helped me when I was at the lowest point of my life.
It’s been a couple of months now since I met Todd and I can’t think of a better person to take care and love Jonah other than him. Someone that can compliment her perfectly. It was kinda awkward the first time we hung out. But I’ve got a chance to know him, and I am glad I did, because Todd is just a very nice and genuine person. He’s like Jonah (just the white male version LOL). He won’t hesitate to help you. Even if you are a complete stranger. So one day, I was bored and somehow we got together. And you know what, we actually had a pretty great time hanging out at the mall on a weekday shopping at H&M. LOL. A couple of weeks after that, he actually shot a wedding with me as my second shooter/ photographer. And he’s pretty good too, to be honest.
Anyway, thank you Todd for making Jonah the happiest girl on earth, man. Looking forward to spending amazing quality time together with both of you, making sweet memories, road trips, vacations, and of course, working together at 888 Productions!
Mr. Blakeman, welcome to the family!

Btw, this is the message from the bride to be:
“For everyone that missed “supposedly” Todd’s Birthday Surprise last Saturday (October 24th) and his surprise proposal… Here are some pix from the night. Thank you Melvin Gilbert for capturing these!! smile emoticon I thought that I’m good in throwing surprises but Todd beat me real good! I thought I was the one with the Big Birthday Surprise for him! He admitted later on, that he knew everything about the party and he made it work to his advantage. So I was totally clueless! Clever guy!! lol He came to the bowling place the day before his birthday for site inspection and Bingo! They have 5 Big Screens at the place (just perfect for his proposal slideshow). Honestly, when I saw his video up on the 5 screens at the end of the bowling lanes, I thought that he prepared a dance routine for his Birthday… I was anxious and seriously waiting for him to start dancing!! LOL It only sinked in that the video was for me at the middle part of his slideshow. I missed his first 2 gigantic cardboards or old school flash cards because I was anticipating something else. Anyway, I could never ask for anything more than this! It was “The Most Perfect Surprise Proposal” for me… And the RING, yes “THE RING” was PERFECT!!! It is so ME!! I love that he knows my taste! smile emoticon This is why I f*ckin LOVE this Man so much! He’s ALWAYS two steps ahead of me. Thanks again for sharing this beautiful day with us. #CheersToLove”
