Miami couple, Carlisha 25, and Joshua, 28, were made for each other. They first crossed paths at a social event. They swapped Words With Friends usernames so they could play a game or two. Joshua admired Carlisha’s passion for sports, and she was intrigued by his “deep” philosophies. They were on a real date before they knew what happened, and a year and a half later he was popping the question on a romantic cruise.  Their big day is next week. Share their love!

When it came time to shoot the vintage portion of their themed engagement session, Carlisha and Joshua didn't skip a single detail. We just adore her high hair, pretty pearls and that train station backdrop.

“My engagement ring is the best gift he ever got me,” says Carlisha. “Not because of the bling, but because of what it stands for.”

“I knew Joshua was the one when one night he had to be at work at 5:45 in the morning, and he came to my house at 1 a.m. to settle a disagreement we were having,” says Carlisha. “His commitment to our relationship was the first sign to me that he was meant for me. Over the course of our relationship, he has proved over and over how committed he is to us.”

Joshua has done many sweet things for his love Carlisha, but one of the gestures she most remembers was the time when he cooked her a five-course meal for Valentine’s Day.
