Oh my gosh - where to even begin with the words for this couple. Aside from the fact that Marley and Nyema are just beautiful people, they have THE best personalities and when they're together, it's just a joyous place. I mean, look at the way he looks at her! With Laila, their little family is complete. She's a joy and a HOOT and taught me all about rocks, tattoos, and flossing (the dance, duh) during our session. By the end of it, she'd asked me to come home with them (sadly had to decline) and when they got in the car to leave, she told her mom, "Aw man, I was just getting started!" HA. Precious girl.
Marley and Nyema are getting married next March in the Dallas area. Nyema's family is Liberian, so they'll be incorporating a lot of cultural aspects into their wedding, which is exciting and an honor to capture. For their engagement session, they wanted to feature the Lappa, a symbolic Liberian cloth. Marley told me that when Nyema graduated from pharmacy school, his family laid down Lappas to him for walk on after he received his diploma. They'll most likely have a few placed on the grounds at their wedding, and we used one in a few different ways for their engagement photos at White Rock Lake in Dallas. These three are perfect for each other and I can't wait to be a part of their big day!
