Destiny….that is the word Leia would use to describe how the two of them were meant to be together for a very long time. Being from the same neighborhood growing up, riding the same bus to different schools together in high school, even their mother’s went to the same high school & signed each others yearbooks when they graduated…just a few years ago Quite some time has passed since the days of Leia & Jerel, noticing each other on the bus to school each day. Although their spark for each other did not start immediately, once it was given a chance, their bond would be cemented & they would have nothing but a bright happy future to look forward to. You can tell when you are around these two that they are truly best friends and are each other’s biggest supporters. We got a glimpse of that earlier this year when we had a chance to shoot their Art Museum engagement session here in Philadelphia.
Well after 6 beautiful years together, the time had arrived for Leia & Jerel to make what they have official, as my buddy Jerel would say. We were there to document things from start to finish & these are the results!

Simply Beautiful Leia….

We will end on this intimate note. Congratulations again & again L & J! Thanks for allowing us to be there to capture it all.
