What comes next after the question is popped? Why, the engagement photo shoot, of course! It's time to share your huge, life-changing news with the world and show 'em how happy you are as you start this new, exciting journey. That's just what this California woman did when her new employer popped the question — of a job offer! Yep, a marriage isn't the only kind of proposal that warrants a photo shoot — at least according to Benita Abraham who took a slew of super cutesy snapshots normally warranted for a lovey-dovey couple — but with her offer of employment. These might just be our favorite engagement photos yet...
After seven long months of job hunting Benita Abraham of Long Beach, California, had finally found the
man job of her dreams. And naturally, took a series of precious photographs to commemorate the celebratory occasion. "I finally found my soulmate, my perfect match, my boo," Abraham captioned the photos on her Facebook page. "After 7 long months, I found the perfect job with a company that truly cares about its employees and one I will learn so much from." While this funny lady might have gotten a gig and not a ring, all of the snapshots are based on typical poses newly-engaged couples do in their proposal photoshoots. "#notjustforbabiesmarriagesandbirthdays," Abraham hashtagged the pics.
In the photos, Abraham lies on the beach, embracing her framed job offer with a "I said yes!" chalkboard sign. In others,, the cute couple (a.k.a. Abraham and her offer of employment) cuddle on a beach blanket and in bed. She even wrote out their "love story" in its entirety — that is, the dates of all of her interviews. Who wouldn't want to hire this woman with that kind of dedication?!
Abraham explained to the Huffington Post that she "really wanted to share my good news with friends and family in a fun, creative and silly way that reflects my personality." And that she certainly did! The photoset has since gone viral, garnering likes and laughs left and right.
"The response has been amazing," this
bride-to-be employee-to-be said. "I love that complete strangers are getting a kick out of this! I've received so many sweet messages." And it's not hard to see why — these photos would make any engaged duo jealous.
Best wishes to this happy couple! May they enjoy the years of
married employed bliss ahead of them.
