I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph the wedding of a special friend. Mykella and I met in Chi Alpha 8 years ago. At the time, Greg and I (not married) were Chi Alpha leaders at the University of Maryland after graduation, and Mykella was a student. As a student, she was super smart, had a gorgeous smile, was shy, sweet, and chock full of creative ideas. Not to mention, she had an entrepreneurial streak — the girl started a stationary company in college! And I have the stylish cards to prove it!
Fast forward 8 years, Mykella introduces Greg and I to her fiance, Joshua — a gentleman, jovial, gregarious and just a godly guy who comes from an amazing family. I was especially touched by Joshua’s Jamaican grandfather who gave a touching and bold speech about the power of family and togetherness. Greg and I were also touched by Mykella and Joshua’s decision to have a super simple wedding. They spent all their savings on a beautiful turn of the century home, instead of a grand wedding. I’m truly proud of them for their wise decision. I wish I had done the same! 😉
Mykella + Josh, you are an extraordinary couple! Many blessings as you live this life together for God and His glory! Your testimony is powerful, and your love is so evident. Congratulations! Here are some of my favorites from their special day! Special thanks to my second photographer/hubby who gives me the confidence I need to grow as a photographer. I love shooting with him, and I look forward to the many more photo opportunities we get to capture special moments together!
