MEET OUR FAMILY
Meet Shari, Godwin Malachi, Eli, & Asher.
Here's the truth... Good STORIES are what change the world, and THAT, is why we do what we do. Everyone wants their amazing love story told just the way it should, and that's why we want to capture and tell YOUR STORY!
We know exactly what it's like to want your wedding pictures to be perfect. We've been there. We were once you! We, too, were getting ready to start our lives together 7 years ago. The weeks were quickly turning into days, and it wasn't long before we were getting close to the best day of both of our lives - November 30, 2012. There was only one thing we cared about; a photographer who knew our story, and could capture our day as if it was their own.
We want to be there with you on your big day to make sure that not a moment is missed. The look of pride in your mom's eyes, the tears from grandma, and the priceless tears of joy in your man's eyes the first time he sets his eyes on you... Moments like these come around once in a lifetime, and you can't afford to miss them. 10 years after your wedding day, the only memory you'd have of your wedding day would be your pictures. Why not get them done right?!
It all started with just the two of us 7 years ago. Shari and I met back in Ghana in August 2010 and started dating a few months after. We got engaged in November 2011, and got married in November 2012. Now our house is filled with more joy and laughter than we could ever imagine. We also do get our fair share of crying, whining, pooping, and the whole package that comes with having three kids. Our three boys - Malachi, Elisha, and Asher make it a point to constantly keep us busy, but we won't have it any other way. Between me being awesomely awesome, and Shari being... well, the only adult in the house, there's never a dull moment in our house.
Shari is a kindergarten teacher, and we're both very active with our church. After both of us have had long days, we get home and just relax on the couch. We're pretty laid back and just enjoy laying on the couch to watch our favorite shows. We love The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, Game of Thrones, Parenthood, This is Us, Chopped, America's Got Talent, The Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon, etc.
We are very grateful for all the blessings God has given us, and thankful for every opportunity we get to meet people and hear their stories.
This woman is EVERYTHING to me. She's the most beautiful human being I've ever laid my eyes upon, and always the hardest worker in the room. I never hear her complain about her job, and she never calls in sick, unless one of our kids is not well. I know it sounds cheesy, but it's the truth, and hey, that's how I feel 😂. I don't know what I'd do without her.
I couldn't ask for a better Mom for my three boys. She's like Supergirl and Wonder Woman combined. I'm always so amazed at how she's able to multitask and somehow take care of everyone in the house. She's very organized (sometimes a little too organized lol), a planner, and a creature of habit (complete understatement).
On a wedding day, she sees the little (or rather big) details that only a woman can notice, and helps me capture them. Wedding days are very stressful (not only to the couple, but to the photographer as well), and she helps me keep my calm in the midst of all the stress that goes on during the day.
I'm a pretty laid back person, and like to geek over techy and superhero stuff. I've seen every single Marvel AND DC superhero movie at least twice if not more. I enjoy listening to music a lot, and love playing the piano and bass guitar. On most weekends, I usually lead worship at my church. I believe in the Golden Rule; in doing for others what you'd want them to do for you.
I strongly believe in laughter, and love bringing fun to the party. I believe that people are more important than anything else, and should be treated with the utmost love and kindness. When I'm dead and gone someday, the one thing I want people to remember me for would be the kindness and love I extended to them. That's why I strive my best to be my best by all standards.
I'm a perfectionist, and believe in giving nothing but my absolute best, regardless of the situation. So whenever I show up for any session, I treat it as if it were my own. If you're going to do something, make sure it's nothing short of your absolute best. As my good friend Ben Adams from Style & Story Creative famously says, "go big, or go home!"
READY TO SIT AND HAVE A CHAT WITH US?
We look forward to speaking with you soon!
