engagement session at Eleanor Tinsley Park

Mayra and Wes

“If this is how it feels the win the lottery, then HOLY MOLY” said Mayra as we finishing their session. Their engagement session was by far one my of favorites. When I saw them, my jaw dropped! They were dressed to the T… and I LOVE THAT!!!! They were so fun and amazing to work with! It was a perfect Saturday morning for a downtown session at Eleanor Tinsley Park the same place where we meet! I was actually met Mayra and Wes that the same park while I was photographing another engagement session.

So these two got married this past weekend in Cape Town, South in March and OMG she was the perfect bride! Mayra and Wes are true soulmates and absolutely felt the love during their engagement season!

HOW they met

Wes and I met downtown at a place called the Pastry War. It was really by chance as Wes is not originally from the U.S., he is from Cape Town, South Africa. He approached me and said “hi,” and when I heard it is a beautiful accent, I instantly felt a connection. We enjoyed an evening of bar-hopping together and exchanged numbers; the rest is history!

Wes and Mayra,
Thank you so much for letting me part of your new journey. From the day we met, you were so sweet and I knew we were meant to be long life friends. Your love shines and I wishing you both a lifetime of happiness. Love yall!
