I was prompted by a friend to find these pictures and reload this slideshow. Thanks Val for the boost as I feel blessed to have been there to witness history. What strikes me, in looking back, is the size of the crowd and the DIVERSITY it reflects!
Farewell Mr. President Barack Obama,
You, First Lady Michelle and the girls represented us with Intelligence, grace, charm and a sincere urgency to always do what you felt in your gut was right. I’m sad to see you go but I’m happy for you at the same time as living in a bubble for 8 years is enough for any one family. Go forward and enjoy your time with Michele, Sasha and Malia…… they need you now.
May God protect you and the United States of America….
Sincerely Delores Holloway
Obama Inaugural 2009
Something about this day was very special… the girls were together, relaxed and waiting for the time to get ready. Porscha owning her chill and her right to be relaxed and in the moment as the room buzzed around her. Yes, the room was a-buzz with mom and friends who were fun, lively and dedicated to ensuring a spectacular union. I could tell from the interaction that they had been friends for quite sometime and will be for a long time to come. As I got to know… asking all the questions that I normally do to get to know the puzzle pieces, everything seemed to fit. Perfectly! I excused myself to go to the grooms room that was in stark contrast…. at first.
Sydney was diligently working on rewriting his vows… Oh, they had already been written he assured me…. he was just rewriting them so they would be neat and presentable. The room was quiet and he was there alone reflecting and clearly ready to walk down the aisle to meet his bride. You could actually see the excitement in his eyes. His family ans friends quickly joined him to help him get dressed for his big day. Mom organized, orchestrated and made sure everything was just so… Love Her!
The day unfolded as many do… crazy anticipation then cool and calm as the vows are recited before the world and the room settles into the idea of this new couple embarking on a journey that many have partaken and others perhaps dream of. Man and wife…
Sydney and Porscha, thanks so much for letting me into your world for just a moment in time to capture this special time in your lives. May you continue to be blessed as you take this journey together. I officially welcome the two of you into the #whimsy4life family.

Master Productions had the place jumping all night long… What a treat to work with Percy Norman
Awww, this love is refreshing… Charlie (cough..aka Brandon) and Fenice are quite the couple. If ever there were two people perfect for each other it would be these two. I had so much fun capturing them during their engagement shoot months ago and then again on their wedding day. I am one of many proud aunts of the groom and a now his new bride. Yes, it can be challenging reserving a day of wedding celebration and fun with the group of people you know and love so well to work instead. Truth be told, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I even shook a leg on the dance floor once most of the pictures were taken. Love you guys!
More pictures to be loaded very soon… In the meanwhile, Enjoy the show…
