I know I’ve kept you guys waiting for over a week but I’m sure you know why by nowUp next is my 6-11-11 couple Dr. Altreisha and Dr. Oladi. Altreisha emailed me 4-16-09 to reserve her wedding date, I didn’t take the inquiry too seriously until she wrote back again. So I responded to make sure it wasn’t a typo that she’s trying to book her photography 2 yrs prior. Well, it turned out she wasn’t kidding and she’s apparently one of my blog stalkers from way back so we were off to great start. Altreisha is from Jamaica and Oladi is from Togo, so it’s another mixed cultured wedding I’m looking forward to shoot in Minneapolis. We shot in Old Town Alexandria and Washington in 39 degrees weather and we were so happy it was 39 degrees since we just came out of a snow blizzard. Enjoy the shots of these lovely couple and I hope to post their part 2 before their wedding. For this post, I will be posting backwards starting from the end of the shoot to the beginning.
Don’t forget to check out their website at the end of the post.
One of our stops in Old Town – Old Fashioned Ice Cream Company
See how Altreisha’s buttons match the guys in red
So we quickly figured that hopping wasn’t one of Ladi’s strengths
The colors here remind me of the Jamaican and Togo flag colors. Yellow from the Jamaica, red and yellow from Togo.
Trish requested a geeky look shot and I obliged…Trish you happy now?
So I thought we could personalize their “gift registry” page on their website and here is what we came up with, the second shot was used. This could pass for a commercial Ad campaign, I tell ya!
Altreisha and Oladi’s lovely wedding website –www.trishandoladi.com. I love their song selections so much I left it on repeat for while when site was launched months ago.
