Admittedly, Aiyana and Peter are younger than most couples I work with. The chemistry between two people is what it comes down to when I’m documenting their story. That, and choice in music. They pulled off a surprise first dance to a Missy Elliot track from my yesteryears. I knew Lose Control’s still a banger and totally didn’t need today’s youths to validate my taste in music.
There are so many small moments where they are unabashedly themselves, whether it’s Aiyana with the Sour Patch Kids, or their florals in the iconic orange home improvement buckets, that it’s hard to pick a favorite. Hence, a photoessay, right? These are my humble observations as a fly on a wall of all these emotions and observations packed into a single day. Please enjoy.
