Photographer Natalie of Rebel Fox Photography brought Angelique and Michel together for an engagement-style shoot with a tropical meets industrial feel. It won our hearts in no time. Don't miss Angelique's amazing, textured bouquet by Mack Floral Design. But first, here's a bit of background about the couple from Natalie…

Angelique only recently left the West African country of Togo to study Chemistry in Northern California. To pursue her dream, she left her six siblings behind and stepped into a world without the support of family or friends and with only a limited grasp of the language.

A month later and just a couple hundred miles over, in Côte d'Ivoire, Michel was also readying himself to move. A civil engineering student, he too thought the Bay Area held promise. So, when he got off the plane at SFO he grabbed an Uber and headed north to a new life.

Six months ago they met. Michel was struggling to register at the Santa Rosa Junior College, Angelique noticed that he needed help and the rest, you'll see, is history.
