Tell us how you met. Haley and I met in 2015, I had the honor of taking her graduation photos. I always tell her that God allowed my passion to find the woman of my prayers. I was taking my fraternity brother’s (Alpha Phi Alpha) twin sister’s graduation photos first and Haley, whom I was shooting the next day was there helping her. Haley and I immediately clicked and the first thing that I noticed about her were her freckles. Her eyes were filled with passion and peacefulness. I didn’t know what was going on, I was hot, nervous, and jittery the first time we hung out, but I soon realized I found my soul mate.
Describe your engagement session. Our engagement session started early morning with a huge water wall and continued that evening in an elegant studio and city landscape.
What did you do on your first date? We ate at Cajun Steamers in Tuscaloosa, AL and watched the sunset at the Riverwalk (one of Haley’s favorite things).
What’s your favorite thing to do as a couple? TRAVEL! We love seeing new scenery.
How has wedding planning been so far? Wedding planning has been pretty smooth, I’m sure because we are so close to the industry.
Tell us what you’re looking forward to most on the wedding day. For me, getting the garter! But definitely the reception; partying with family and friends.
