I'm a box of various things: wife to a man I met online in a Japanese anime chat room, mother to three of his clones, and a wee bit of (okay... a huge) geek everywhere else in between. I love pink, I love writing, and I love creating art.
If there’s one thing I love it’s doing it’s Engagement sessions. It’s a perfect setup: two people in love where the only thing you need to do is remind them to keep looking at each other. This session was so fun, heart-filled, and full of love. There’s a number of words to describe this couple who took to Center City Philadelphia to celebrate their Engagement. Cherry Blossoms were in full bloom for this Spring session as we traveled around the city. One of my favorite parts of my job is seeing couples come alive after an hour. From shy and unsure to laughter and genuine reactions.
With the initials A+U, I was happy to meet with this couple and plan out their gorgeous formal wedding later on. With the amazing makeup artistry done by Sharan, Urieke was a stunning beauty with a passion for high fashion as we can clearly see. She was both serving looks and body with no hesitation in laughing. In fact, her laughter was simply infectious because of how happy Ahmad made her. It’s one of the things I love about my line of work. I get to sit back and really see couples be in full love in front of me and the only thing I have to do is time the perfect shot. It’s not about posing and directing when it comes to my work, but connection and emotions. I want to see my couples being true to themselves and the reason for it is self-explanatory when looking at this gallery alone.
This session had the honor of being featured on Black Bride so be sure to check it out!
