Marnel came all the way to NYC to meet me at my studio in January 2011, since then I knew that the four of us (Marnel, Matthew, Anyeka and I) would have a beautiful relationship. In March I photographed Marnel and Matthew’s engagement session in Portland, OR and that further strengthen our relationship. Their wedding was nothing short of awesomeness. For a single moment at the end of the night I stopped and looked at Marnel & Matthew and thought “WOW! They really love each other.” They were the only people on the dance floor, literally 3/4th of their guest had already gone home, the caterers began to clean up, and as though no one else in the world mattered, they slowly danced the night away. I’m really impressed at the love they share. And it was an honor to meet their officiant Michael Eric Dyson.
Matthew and Marnel, thank you for allowing us to document you in your most intimate moments. You guys are special to us.
