This love story is all about destiny. Samatha and Aswad grew up in the same town in Massachusetts and lived five minutes apart, but had never met. As fate would have it, the two finally crossed paths while in college at Salve Regina University in Rhode Island. During college, they shared a special gift of friendship that turned into what Samatha describes as a “great love affair” right before she headed to Mississippi for graduate school. After a year of long distance dating, destiny brought this fated couple back together. On 1/1/11, Aswad proposed to Samatha changing their lives forever.
The couple’s e-session was photographed at their alma mater by Gregory Harren of Greg Brett Studios Photography.
Bride: Samatha Vilme
Groom: Aswad Evans

Inspiration for the Session…
“Our engagement session was so much fun. We found a great up and coming photographer in Greg Harren. He made us feel so comfortable along with his fiancee, Colleen. We found it fitting to do our photo shoot in Newport, RI back on Salve Regina’s gorgeous campus. We loved the whole laid back atmosphere of the shoot.”
“Our wedding style is a colorful romance theme. I loved the symbolism behind peacocks so we are adding that element to our wedding. After 8 years of friendship and love, we are finally completing the trilogy on August 10, 2013. We are so excited to finally be married after a 2 year engagement.”
