26 to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. 27 He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault. 28 In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself. 29 No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church. (Ephesians 5:26-29) NLT

Earlier this month, I was extended the awesome opportunity to capture Brittany and Mario’s BIG DAY in Cancun, Mexico. I have to say, these two prepared for one another like no other couple I’ve ever shot before! They both had the desire to please considering Britt’s 6 hour pampering session before the ceremony and Mario cutting his own hair for about 2 hours (and making sure there wasn’t a single strand of hair out of place on his crisp hairline).

As I took in each moment of the day, this particular portion was highlighted within me. It served as a reminder of how I must live my own life and continue to prepare myself each day to be present before My Savior, Jesus Christ. Check out a few of the shots that I captured during the first half of their day…

Last month, these two tied the knot at the Villa Christina here in Atlanta. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was a flashback into my Ol’ college days. Melvin and Asha definitely know how to have a good time! In just a few weeks, I will be ready to release more, but I just had to share one of my favorites of the evening. We found this red wagon in the back of a maintenance closet. I knew it was a jewel when I first laid eyes on it…

I’m a little disappointed that I couldn’t post this sooner…but things have been kinda hectic for me over the last couple of weeks. With the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 just passing earlier this month, I wanted to take some time to salute the men and women who serve our country and the families that support them. Earlier this week I was watching a TINY bit of the “Tia and Tamara Show” with my wife (you know being the great husband that I am). Tamara was participating in a “Joining Forces” event led by First Lady Michelle Obama. Joining Forces is a call for Americans to show their support for our military families who sacrifice so much in their service to our country. During the First Lady’s speech, she placed a huge emphasis on doing the little things like: sending a small care package, giving a small donation, or even just verbally showing your appreciation by saying “Thank You” to those service men and women and their families. After hearing that speech, I wanted to put what I heard into action. So yesterday, while traveling through the airport on the way to Vegas, I ran into a Commander in the US Army. I proceeded to tell him how much I appreciate everything that he does for our country. I’d have to say I was overwhelmed by his humble response. He really seemed to appreciate me taking the time to say that to him and it didn’t take but a second of my time.

Also, as you all may know, I shot the wedding of Mr. & Mrs. Bruce Lee in New York last month. Bruce recently completed his training and received orders to be stationed in Washington State. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that, just hours after their reception, the couple headed west to start their new lives together as an Army Family. So, in support of Sacia and Bruce Lee and all the troops that proudly serve our country along with their families, I SALUTE YOU! Below are a couple of shots taken of the beautiful bride and soon to be “Army Wife”. Stay tuned…I will be posting more shots from their wedding soon!
