They were childhood sweethearts… growing up in Brooklyn together they had crushes on each other. Their first kiss was in August, 2001, they day before they went out to see Rush Hour 2. And 8 years later, I got to shoot their engagement pictures in Prospect Park, the same park where they first smooched. Their wedding date is TBA, as Derrick will be deploying to Iraq this summer and they will have a big wedding and lots to celebrate when he returns next year, safe and sound.
After spending a couple hours with these two, I fell in love with them. These engagement pictures are so close to my heart, they may as well be of my family.
Aren’t these some awesome bling-y shoes? I love them!
It was so hard to pick out the few for the blog. See the slideshow below for some more!
