Tanja + Jeremy = Married!

We photographed this sweet couple’s awesome African themed wedding and we had a blast with them that day!! Tanja and I actually met at her friend Sierra’s wedding over 10 years ago! She saw us in action that day and knew that she wanted to have us as her photography team once she found her Prince Charming! 🙂 As soon as she got engaged, she called me and I was so excited for her!! I knew Jeremy was a keeper, especially when I saw how he looked at her all day long. They are SO adorably cute together!!

One of my favorite movies as a child was “Coming to America”….not only did I think it was hilarious but I loved the beautiful details in the African wedding scene. When Tanja said that she was going for an African wedding theme, I saw her vision immediately and was SO excited to shoot their details, I knew it would be colorful and beautiful! 🙂 Her details were definitely gorgeous!! I loved her sparkly shoes & accessories, the bright blue African suits & dresses, the gold room that she got ready in, her beautiful hair & make-up, the custom “Mr & Mrs” head table, uplighting, the African photos and drums & their cake!! Some of their relatives even choreographed a special African dance for them to start the party and it was a huge hit! Thanks for a great time you guys, more pics coming soon!
