Engagement Shoot: Travis & Laquisha

Travis and Laquisha are getting married, and what a joy it was to get to know them and shoot their engagement portraits.

We all know the saying ” if it’s meant to be, It will be”…right? Though I’m not sure they were thinking this way back in 2009 when their friendship slowly drifted away.   After several years of little to no communication between the two, they finally reconnected via #Instagram with…she “liked” his pictures, he “liked” her pictures!

They both knew this was a relationship waiting to happen, but waiting to see who would make the first move.  Travis asked her out to a work event and Laquisha said YES!  This was their “It will be” moment and they’re enjoying every moment of this new chapter in their lives…Together.

This is their road to Mr. & Mrs. Beasley!

 

 

Historic Fourth Ward: The Lilly Wedding

Just like their Fall engagement shoot, Barry & Topaz Wedding was Absolutely Beautiful! There was so much Love surrounding them. The weather was great and the Historic Fourth Ward Park was the perfect spot for a #WelcomeToLillyLand Theme!

They both wrote their vows, which left you understanding their love for each other.  Their relationship is built not only with love but friendship, respect, support, and confirmation that they see the beauty in each other.

From the mist of water blessing them during the ceremony, to Topaz mom showing up in the beautiful form of a Rainbow(that you will surly see throughout the images).  I felt blessed to be apart of this wonderful union.  They will forever be apart of the Gober family.

Barry & Topaz Lilly, I Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a blessing to my life, you both bring such Happiness and Love to those who are in your presence.  I Pray for continued love and blessings for your Union.

Berkeley Hills Country Club: Mr. Kwesi & Mrs. Orion Cudjoe-Chow

Arriving at Berkeley Hills Country Club I could feel that fall was just around the corner, and Love was in the air.  The wind was blowing and the temperature was just right for a outdoor wedding.  it’s amazing what little time is needed in order to stop, breath and relax. I can see why the Kwesi and Orion chose this Beautiful Country Club.

Kwesi walked into the ballroom being escorted by his father, not knowing what his beautiful bride looked like from under the mask he was wearing. Orion smiled and laughed, and when they were finally close to each other Kwesi asked…can I touch her?

The first Touch!

They touched each other and it was like they didn’t want to let each other go. The both of them complimented each other on how good they smelled. These moments always seem to be my favorite…because I see and feel when they’ve started to embrace the moment they’ve been waiting for.

I love that Orion and Kwesi decided to celebrate their #10yearweddinganniversery by showing their continued love for each other with family and friends.
