Many + Adaeze | Engagement Session | Roosevelt Row Phoenix AZ

Aug 1, 2018

“Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

1 Corinthians 13:7 

     I remember the exact moment I met these two!  The chemistry was astounding, the ease of their conversation was intoxicating, their excitement about their engagement was euphoric.  I knew in those first 5 seconds that I had to know more, no not had… NEEDED to know more about them, and their love story. Being followers of Jesus Christ, you seldom see someone jump so quick into their faith, when in conversation with a stranger.  But that’s just it, they didn’t treat me like a stranger, but as a fellow christian, who loves Jesus, who loves people. 

     When we met, I was 8 months post op from brain surgery. Something that I spoke openly about, until I saw how scared or overwhelmed it made people feel. Shoot even for me it sounded so foreign coming off my lips. It still feels like a distant memory, even though it was not that long ago. These two jumped all in immediately, they made my heart swell with gratitude and thankfulness at the love of our work. Joe and I immediately looked at each other, and without knowing any of their situation said, “Can we gift you an engagement session?”  Shock was our response, pure and utter silence, I think their might have been a tear or two from Mr. Manny! So here we are, I introduce to you the soon to be Mr + Mrs Manny and Adaeze aka Ada… (yes girl that ones for you!). We are so incredibly honored to capture your love story in just a few months. It’s going to be epic! Here is my official debut back to FULL TIME wedding photography.
