I met Atiba Ovid while working in NYC at target. He was always kind and full of life, which makes it no surprise he asked Brigitte to marry him. She is his perfect match. When Atiba called me and asked me to be his photographer I was honored and then he told me it was in Texas. I was like, "When did you move to Texas?"
My flight to Texas was flawless. Arriving in Texas, was amazing as my second shooter and I went site seeing before meeting the future Ovid's. That night we accompanied them to the rehearsal dinner. I always love attending the rehearsal because we can get familiar with the events of the day and see the lighting of the ceremony space. The love and excitement in the room during the rehearsal was monumental. It was clear they were meant for each other.
The day of the wedding we arrived a bit before 8:00am before the Bride and her Bridesmaids started getting ready, this is the time we use to set everything up and take photos of all the details, like shoes, the veil, and the dress. in the case of the Ovid's their reception space was at the same location where they were getting ready and having the ceremony (photographers holy trinity) and the ceremony and reception were all set and ready to go. This allowed me to take the photos of the reception space with out and guest.
There were a few hick ups with the venue and schedule, but nothing we couldn't handle. Once the day got started we were on a roll. It was a day of smiles, tears, love, and devotion.
