From the very first meeting we had with Courtney and Barry, it was very evident that their wedding day was not only going to be the marriage of two people, but also a celebration of their beautiful families. Nearly a year ago, we took the whole crew out for a family engagement session and had an incredible time getting to know their three wonderful kids. In Izaiah we saw a kind, patient, and confident role model for his younger brothers. Iverson had an incredibly fun energy: playful, smart, and creative which helped make the shoot extra fun. Braxton is clearly a keen observer of the wonderful family he's grown up around, displaying kind and loving characteristics of all. These boys are definitely going places with all of the incredible tools their parents have given them.
Courtney and Barry are beautiful examples of commitment, unwavering love, and selflessness. There's a reason they are surrounded by so many wonderful friends and family: these two exude love. Throughout our interactions in the planning process, we observed their teamwork, patience, and dedication. Even in planning their own wedding, their kids, families, and friends were always first in their minds. What a beautiful way to begin a marriage, having these values first and foremost!
On the wedding day we got to meet the larger family circle that we had heard so much praise about. It was certainly no exaggeration; we felt so much love and gratitude around us. The bond that holds this group together is intoxicating. From the very first minute we arrived, we were welcomed in with open arms into their inner circle. It was an honor to be part of this celebration of love and family.
We want to thank you Courtney and Barry for having us be part of your special day! It was an honor and a privilege to work with you. We're excited to watch your family grow and see the beautiful impact your kids will have on the world.
