Great news guys – We’re back up and running after about 10 days of technical difficulties! Today is the start of an abundance of wonderful tattooed posts coming your way!
First up is this tattooed beauty Emily and Joey’s engagement shoot from Terribly In Love Photography (Who is actually engaged to Emily’s cousin – how amazing?!) Emily was on Pinterest searching for tattooed bride and wedding inspiration when she came across the Marry Me Ink boards showing off all the amazing brides who do not try to hide their tattoos on their wedding day. Also, Emily and Joey have the most wonderful story of how they met..
Joey and I met in 2011 when I moved into the apartment above where he was living at the time in Seattle (it was an old Hollywood-style building where the doors go right outside, like a hotel). At first we just saw each other almost every day whenever we were coming or going, but never really spoke. Once we finally introduced ourselves a couple of months later we quickly became really good friends, then best friends and even decided to move in together later on (still as friends) when both of our leases were up to a place in a different apartment building.
Long story short, we eventually realized that we had feelings for each other, so we decided to take the leap from friends to something more and never looked back. As terrifying as it was to put our friendship at risk like that it was, hands down, the best decision that either of us has ever made and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life being in love with my best friend!
Joey proposed in April this year at sunset on the beach while we were on a trip to Seaside, Oregon to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. I had no idea it was coming and was taken totally by surprise, which made it even more exciting for both of us. I can honestly say that it was the happiest moment of my life (so far at least)!
How beautiful is Emily & Joey’s story? Thank you to them both and to Terribly In Love Photography for sharing their engagement shoot with Marry Me Ink. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for their upcoming wedding and leave them some love!
