One of our favorite photographers, Ayokunu Oduniyi of AO Media, recently got engaged to the lovely Susan Deborahs and we couldn't be happier for these two love birds. The couple met on Facebook in 2009. "Facebook kept suggesting him as a friend and we had a lot of mutual friends, so I gave in to Facebook's secret matchmaking and went to his profile," said Susan. "He wrote a few notes that I loved and I inboxed him (I slid right into his DMs) and told him I liked it. From that day we spoke every day." For Ayokunu he knew right away that there was something special about Susan. "I literally fell in love with her, it was more than beauty, attraction etc....(she is smoking hot!), it was heart, chemistry, unison of thought and language, just like actual best friends doing life," shared Ayokunu.
Unfortunately, after a whirlwind romance Susan decided to end their relationship and they didn't speak to each other for a while. However, as fate would have it, that was not the end of their love story. "Fast forward to early 2013, I felt as though God opened my eyes to the type of man I needed," said Susan. Finally, in December of 2013 Ayokunu and Susan gave love a second chance. "I forgave her and something radical changed in my heart and it exploded out with love for her (it was uncontrollable and not fair! Lol)," said Ayokunu. The happy couple are counting down the days until their fall wedding at Froyle Park in Hampshire. See more from their proposal and engagement session below.
