Front & Palmer Wedding | Romantic Chic evening | Will + Jasmine’s Philadelphia wedding
September 8, 2019 by Afrik Armando in Stories, Weddings 0 Comments

I don’t think I’ll be forgetting about Will & Jasmine’s wedding anytime soon. That morning when I walked into Jasmine’s hotel, the first thing she said was “ Oh Afrik we’ve got something for you”, I wasn’t sure what to expect but when I opened the little package, it was honey pretzels. Now this made me tear up because they somehow remembered this trivial detail form a conversation we had almost a year prior. More to this, honey pretzels were my late step-moms solution to every problem. So this little random act of kindness truly made all the difference. At the end of the day, that to me is true beauty, not just physical appearances, but a rich soul & hearts filled with love. Jasmine & Will thank you for letting me spend your most special day with you guys. Not only did we have so much fun slaying with Beyonce in the morning, by the end of the day you definitely had me, drunk on love. Thanks for treating me like family and for bringing so much joy to my heart. You mean a lot to me and I look forward to growing and learning together.

And what vision do you have?these things inform the colors, lighting, and location of your shoot. For the images below, my goal was to capture the magical hearts of Kat and Serge (my wedding couple), so I knew the light had to be a key component. We used soft pink for their tender love and went […]
