When Dwain contacted me to schedule a surprise engagement photo shoot in Grapevine, Texas, I knew he must be a one-of-a-kind-guy. He had put so much time into planning the perfect day to surprise his girlfriend Allison with a scavenger hunt that would lead her from place to place that held special meaning to their relationship. We picked the Grapevine Botanical Gardens in Grapevine, Texas as the place where he would propose and I would secretly photograph their engagement. Dwain arranged for Allison to be off work for the day, he left clues all over town, and kept up with Allison’s whereabouts as she visited clue after clue.
When Dwain arrived, we checked out several places in the gardens and found what we determined to be the best vantage point for good lighting and a romantic setting. I found a good hiding place behind a tree for this surprise engagement photo shoot and parked myself there while Dwain nervously paced and checked his cell phone.
The clues Dwain left for Allison eventually led her to the Grapevine Botanical Gardens, and it was so exciting when she finally arrived!
Dwain took Allison to the bridge over the koi pond and reached in his pocket…
And went down on one knee…
And Allison saw me hiding in the bushes.
I felt a bit like an intruder during such a sweet moment.
Congratulations you two!
Allison told me a bit of their story and suffice it to say, they know for certain that God brought them together and they were meant to be. Their story is one of God’s grace, the right timing, and waiting on God. Best wishes for a lifetime of happiness together, Dwain & Allison!
