Hello and welcome to my blog!
I'm Amy Emily and I'm a New England + Destination Wedding Photographer based in Boston, MA. I'm satisfied in the moments where I've kicked off my heels, grabbed a
cup of coffee, and laughed 'till my sides hurt.
I adore telling the charming and ever-so amazing stories of life. I hope I can be a part
of yours. Look around, share in the joy of others, and remember your story is beautiful.
Tina had fallen in love with him but Raphael had not fallen for Tina. Raphael was nowhere near love. So Raphael said they were good friends and Tina could not be just friends. Tina decided the best course of action was to stop talking for at least a month. After some time, a good friend who had watched this friendship have its up and downs, Bianca said “why don’t you call Tina?” Raphael wrestled with this, would it be wise? They cut the friendship but Bianca encouraged him. He called around Christmas and they talked awhile. Raphael prayed. Three months of waiting and nothing really happened. He didn’t have feelings for Tina, she was just a good friend. Later a friend of his encouraged him to think about getting a girlfriend. He took his advice and asked another girl to date. Tina was crushed. What had happened and what in the world was wrong with this guy? In the end, that relationship ended after 7 months and Raphael admits it was foolish.
Then God intervened in his life. Finally Tina wrote in her diary, okay God, do whatever you want to do with Raphael that’s fine. That exact day, thousands of miles away from Germany, in the States, Raphael could not get thoughts of Tina out of his mind. The thoughts became intense and Raphael asked God, “What are you doing?” As he was working on an internship as an Event/Fundraising manager he went to visit his grandparents. Raphael’s grandparents had been happily married for 60 years so he asked his grandmother for advice. She told him, you have two options, date and marry her or don’t talk to her ever again. And grandma’s favorite last words, “pray about it.”
The day before Tina was to go on Holiday, Raphael Skyped her and he rambled during his IM-ing and ended up telling Tina they should do this. Completely confused Tina asked, “are you asking me to become your girlfriend?” Raphael responded we should pray about it. Tina who had been praying for two years stated honestly she did not want to pray about it any longer. When Tina woke up the next morning she jumped on Skype to see in the conversation had happened. (This is totally a moment every girl would have!) Had God answered her prayers? Indeed, He had.
When Raphael came back to Germany, he asked her in person on the train. Will you date me? And now it’s their wedding day. Raphael gushes as he talks about Tina, she’s nice, creative, crazy and goofy. They think similarly. Soul mates!
