Today marks the 5th wedding anniversary of two of my closest friends, Ekiuwa and Osaya Evbuomwan. They run House of Evbuomwan, a boutique graphic design agency here in Atlanta, and are two of the coolest people you will ever meet!
I met Ekiuwa through instagram two summers ago. We linked up over lunch and talked about being freelance designers and adjusting to Atlanta life, after have living in two of America's most beautiful cities. Her and Osaya had moved from Honolulu, Hawaii and me Los Angeles, California. We instantly hit it off, as we had never met anyone else that had as much interest in the same things as we did! It was definitely refreshing to have a new friend that understood exactly where I was coming from at the time.
Growing to know Ekiuwa, I grew to know Osaya! He's seriously the brother I've never had! From telling me when I'm being lazy, and giving me the kick I needed to really launch my business, to his insane help or advice on anything you need. It's really a blessing to have them as friends! We've experienced quite a bit in our two years as friends, but they're both extremely loyal, compassionate and understanding! Everyone should be so lucky to have a pair of friends such as them!
I've shot many sessions with this crazy couple, but this is by far my favorite! This is going to sound really corny, but I've seriously witnessed the power of love through watching their relationship. If you follow Ekiuwa online (@ekiuwa on instagram), you may may have read some of the unfortunate things they've had to overcome. Witnessing those tough times first-hand was hard, but seeing them here – in these moments in a random field as a stronger, happier and more-in-love-than-ever couple, makes my heart oh-so-happy.
HAPPY 5TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY,
YOU AMAZING PEOPLE YOU!
