We worked with Michelle and Rasheeda for close to a year in preparation for their big day and loved every minute of it!  Michelle’s excitement and whimsical attitude towards the camera made amazing photos.  Even though Rasheeda kept saying that she wasn’t a fan of being photographed, the excitement of saying “I do” to her soon to be wife made her seem to forget the camera altogether resulting in some of our favorite images.

The Climb Event Center was a terrific event space with its bare brick walls and its industrial feel, not to mention its many windows that allowed so much beautiful light into the building during the ceremony.  Even though the space had plenty of its own character, it also served well as a blank canvas to be filled with all the details that Michelle and Rasheeda wanted.  This celebration was a striking example of how hard work and plenty of planning can pay off.

One of our favorite details to photograph on a wedding day is the engagement ring. Michelle’s ring was absolutely spectacular!

All of our weddings are remarkable, but these two amazing women have found a special place in our hearts.  Our excitement for the wedding day was matched with a slight sadness that we were coming to an end to this chapter of our time with them. Their love and commitment to each other are inspiring and admirable.   We are looking forward to working with them again in the future!
