Janell & Joe - A New Leaf, Chicago, IL


"If the stars align and by the grace of Beyoncé's fierceness you might consider being our wedding photographer." That was the first thing Janell ever said to me and sure enough, the stars properly aligned and King Bey saw it fit that I would document Janell and Joe's wedding. When you met two people who have been friends for many years, who also happen to be deeply in love and grateful for one another, it shows. It seeps out of their pores and ascends up into the atmosphere, and if you happen to be in the presence of such love, it shows down on you as well. Both incredible artists in their own right, Janell and Joe brought undeniable good vibes and positivity energy each time we met. I am now lucky to call them friends. - O
