Hello people, hope you guys are doing great. The last time dada had me on the blog i was a newbie explorer :). Now i am a full time pro. I now go wherever i want whenever i want ( except the stairs..folks got a gate there 🙁 ) They are constantly trying to talk to me but i don’t quite understand their language. I usually have an idea of what they are trying to say but pretend i am clueless lol (Allows me to get away with a lot of stuff). Maybe one day they will understand my own language. Mama & dada are the best in the world because they always feed me, read to me and let me watch barney & Yo Gabba Gabba….Love those shows! It was nice catching up with you all. I’ll be back soon. Check out a few pics of me chilling at the park. This place was funnnn! I went down the slide, played on the swings, rode on a bouncing horse thingy and even drove a truck! Enjoy 🙂

The story of LeVar and Salethia’s relationship is a classic example of  “if it’s meant to be”. Destiny brought them together after several years on their separate paths. At the end, they not only found each other but found true love. I had a wonderful time documenting the strong love between both of them. We started out at Inman Middle school where they first met then we went down to Piedmont Park for some more shots.  Congrats guys.. I am really looking forward to your wedding! Below is short story on how they met.  I also included the proposal story (a good one!) further down so make sure you read that as well. Enjoy!

HOW WE MET

Salethia and I went to Inman Middle School together, and though we knew of each other, we didn’t really know one another. Fast forward 13 years, in the winter of 2009 and I’m browsing on facebook and I happen to run across her profile. Of course she looked gorgeous so I sent her a friend request and a message saying hello. She replied back and I mentioned we should get together and she left me her number but I never called. Then in the spring, we had an Inman Class of ’96 reunion at the Spaghett Factory and I saw her again! We both played it cool and went our separate ways. And still nothing happened until that summer, when I finally called her and set up our first date on June 19th. We went to Two Urban Licks for dinner and saw “The Hangover”. I think at that point with our silly personalities, we realized that we may have stumbled on to something great! Two years later we’re engaged and tying the knot on October 1. As we sit back and look at our relationship, we wonder, “Who knew??”. And I think we both understand that only GOD did!!!

LeVar is a Videographer for a local news station in Atlanta. So he brought his big equipment to record some scenes of where he met his future wife.

THE PROPOSAL

I went with Salethia and her family on a weekend trip to Orlando. Her mom and brother already knew I planned to propose but of course, she didn’t. After we spent the day at Universal Studios, we came back to the hotel and I was able to take her away for a few hours. Initially I had made dinner reservations at a restaurant downtown. But we got back so late, and we promised to take her daughter Jayla to Magic Kingdom. So we ended up at Lake Eola and walked around their beautiful park. I then proceeded to recite a poem that I wrote to her on Valentines Day title, “There’s no you without no me.” After the poem I let her know how much she meant to me, got down on one knee and asked if she would do me the honor of being my wife?? After several minutes of excitement, smiling, and crying, she still hadn’t said yes and I was still on one knee, and I told her, “You know, you still have to say yes,” and she did!!!

Here is our attempt at a mini reenactment..lol

LeVar said Salethia jumped in the air after he proposed to her. So i was curious what the jump was like and she happily showed me!

It was a beautiful sunny day in Atlanta and a great day for a shoot. We had planned to do this session earlier but because of consistent bad weather we had to reschedule a few times. I was glad to finally get the chance to hang with Cherdon & Greg at the beautiful Historic Fourth Ward Park Atlanta. We had a great time and it was a good opportunity for them to get camera ready since their wedding is in a few weeks. Looking forward to their big day because i know its going to be a blast. Below are a few images from the day and off course the story of how it all started..cute & funny story lol. Enjoy!

We meet March 20th 2006. It was a blind date. My sister had a friend that knew a guy that was single and looking. I was single but my sister was always doing the looking for me:-)…what can I say I loved being single. Anyway, she called me with this guys number and said that I had to call him because she had already told him I would. Lord knows I didn’t want to but I did and got his country, non english speaking voicemail. OMG please don’t let this guy call back because he sounded like he had big gold teeth and short dirty dreadlocks.
When he called back I did not want to answer but I did so I could tell my sister I spoke to him and she would get off my back about it. That day we talked on the phone for 4 hours…thank God for Metro PCS. We had a great conversation to say the least. We talked everyday until we got a chance to meet and it was love at first site for him….LMBO. He was quiet but cute, short but sexy and knew how and when to check me and still letting me be me. 4 years later we have a handsome 1 year old son and a beautiful relationship. We look like night and day but we are made for each other!
