Photographing Raymond and Liana’s wedding at the Wedgewood Banquet Center in Oakland, CA was like photographing two of our own homies getting married. From the moment Amari switched on the Tevin Campbell station on Pandora while the ladies prepped and got ready, I knew we would witness a marriage surrounded by love and friendships of long standing history. And that it was.

Raymond & Liana, thank you for allowing us to capture your day. Can’t wait to show you guys the rest of the images! For now, here are a few of Amari’s favorites:
