Mr + Mrs Lalami

Well this one is a little different than the usual wedding, and in a way that hit close to home for me. 

Othmane is from Morocco and came to the states to play tennis at Auburn University in Alabama. While he was in school, he met Cayla, who grew up here in the great state of Ohio, but happened to also be attending the school. Well, one thing led to another and the two of them have been inseparable since.

Othmane decided he wanted to be here in the states with Cayla and so together they have faced the U.S. immigration process together - just like my husband and I did back in the day - and when anyone goes through that process, it's so trying on the relationship. And these two passed through it all with grace and came out on the other end stronger for it. (congrats again for passing your interview!!)

They actually got married around Christmas time last year. So what I captured was the reception 6 months later in her hometown of Cincinnati. And it ended up being a beautiful celebration between both families, a lot of whom traveled from all over the United States, Europe, Morocco, and even the Middle East to be there. Getting to watch all of these people from all over the world be apart of Cayla and Othmane's celebration was truly special for me! And I'm so happy I got to capture it all. 

So, press play and let the photos do the rest of the talking <3
