The Que Dog & His Delta Diva
Meet my cousin Jalissa and her fiancé Shawn. I have known this couple for a very long time and I am so excited that they are preparing to tie the knot! Jalissa met Shawn outside of her high school, University High, in Newark, New Jersey. Shawn didn't go to the same school, but he lived right across the street. They dated throughout college and their love for one another has grown tremendously over the years. They have so much in common... They are both quirky, love to laugh, and are family oriented. They both love fashion and shopping. For fun they also enjoy going to the movies and Netflix and Chilling (lol)! They are both members of the divine nine historically black Greek organizations. Shawn finally worked up the courage to pop the big question last year on Lisa's birthday (10/10/15). He took her out to a romantic dinner downtown Baltimore at the Inner Harbor. Lisa said while they were waiting for the waitress to bring dessert, he started fidgeting with his jacket and looking nervous. He got down on one knee and the surprise took over her, all she could say was "Oh my God is this real" over and over again... reality eventually set in and of course she said YES! They have been in planning mode ever since. The big day is set for August 12, 2017 and I am honored to be Lisa's matron of honor. Everyone is excited for this next step in Lisa and Shawn's life. I was definite excited and honored to photograph their engagement session, which we did in Branch Brook Park, Newark, New Jersey. I hope you enjoy this sneak peak of their photos.
