More and more of our couples are finding love on social media. When Clarissa spotted Charles on Instagram, she knew she had to make a move.
It was Charles’ impressive beard that first caught Clarissa’s attention. She was following a bearded men group on IG and saw Charles on the following list. She friend requested him and sparks flew.
On Christmas day 2019, Charles enlisted the help of Clarissa’s son to pull off a heartwarming proposal in front of their family. Clarissa was genuinely caught off guard, and it was perfectly intimate and sweet.
Charles and Clarissa are big sports fans. When the Atlanta United soccer team came to the Mercedes Benz stadium, they made it to the majority of the games. Since they always have an amazing time in the beautiful stadium, they decided to have their engagement shoot there. Such a fun and unique idea. See all of the photos from their sports-themed engagement shoot below.

How did you meet?
Charles and Clarissa met on Instagram (IG). Clarissa was following a bearded group and Charles saw me on the following list and requested me.
How did he propose?
It was Christmas day 2019. Clarissa cooked for her family at her new home. They all opened their presents and took pictures. Clarissa was looking a hot mess in her Wu-tang shirt and jeans when Charles told Clarissa’s 20-year old son to get the camera out. Clarissa was like what are they about to do a Christmas dance? Then Charles got on one knee in front of her family and proposed. Clarissa was in shock!! They travel so much Clarissa thought for sure he would do it on one of their trips, but no he was clever and totally caught her off guard.
