Technology is amazing it, with a simple touch of a button you can meet a stranger in Japan or reconnect with old friend with a simple online game. Jacquel and Dennis began chatting back and forth on Facebook, he assisted her on her move to Washington, D.C. and soon they began dating. Christmas day he decided to spend the evening at her families house for dinner, after they ate and began exchanging gifts he said he had one more present. He gave her a large wrapped cylinder, which she unwrapped to find a vase full of Lindor chocolates and at the bottom a small box. As she turned to look at him he was on his knees asking for her hand in marriage. For their engagement shoot their photographer Pharris Photography planned a simple and sweet photo shoot in that would incorporate how they met and highlight their natural love for each other. We wish the couple the best on the upcoming nuptials.
How They Met
Dennis and Jacquel reconnected through Facebook and the popular game Words with Friends. During Jacquel’s move to the DC area, Dennis offered to help with the big move. Thus beginning a budding relationship.
Dennis came over to the Haywood house Christmas Day to fellowship, open gifts, and chow down and after everyone was done opening up their gifts, Dennis said he had one more. Jacquel had no idea what was happening or why everyone got so quiet he returned with a large wrapped cylinder. Jacquel opened the wrapped gift to find lots of Lindor chocolate truffles inside…she thought that was the gift. Dennis told her to dig into the cylinder. Jacquel found a small wrapped box inside the cylinder and opened it. In it, was another box. As she opened the second box, Dennis got down on one knee. When she looked up from the box he asked, “Will you marry me?” Without hesitation Jacquel said “yes” and shed a few tears. Dennis placed the ring on her finger and they shared their first kiss towards the rest of their lives.
The Engagement Session
Dennis and Jacquel took pictures at a park in Sugarland, Texas. They desired to have nice pictures in a natural setting and were able to utilize different spots at the park to create versatile photo shoot. Pharris Photography gave them various poses and facial expressions to work with during the shoot. Dennis and Jacquel were thoroughly impressed with how easy it was to work with Pharris Photography and they final product of the photo shoot.
