Sherice & Derek // Engagement Session

s&dengagement 040-1.jpg

Sherice knew OF him but didn't know him. Occasionally they would pass eachother in the halls, maybe even exchanged a couple words; but with Derek being a few years older, in high school it was like he was on another planet.  Though she barely knew Derek, she was friends with the Matchmaker of the Century: his brother, Mike. 

Mike exchanged their phone numbers and set the ball rolling on the story of Sherice and Derek. They texted for hours on end, getting to know eachother and finding out how much they had in common (notably, their diehard love for the Patriots).  Over the next five years, their love grew stronger and then... 

April 2015. Derek had it all planned out. He had the ring in a beautiful box,  exquisitely wrapped and ready to give Sherice the surprise of her life. After a perfect night out together, Sherice was given the box and she was taken away by how much thought went into it. And then she opened it. And was met with the most ridiculous, ugliest, gigantic gag gift of a ring anyone has ever seen. The look I imagine she gave him at that moment might've set him on fire had he not been cracking up at his perfectly-executed prank. Things got real though, as he pulled out the real, gorgeous engagement ring and asked her to spend her life with him. She said yes, knowing full well she's probably in for a lifetime of pranks. That's love right there.
