When Miriam and Mualimu wrote me about documenting their wedding only a few months before the big day, I had this feeling that it was going to be something special, which it most certainly was. These two wonderful human beings are absolutely perfect together, beautiful people, kind, smart and generous. Their wedding took place in the bride’s hometown of Modesto CA and the mix of Mexican and Hawaiian cultures made for a beautiful celebration. It was such an authentic wedding and I found myself feeling right in my element documenting many of the same wedding traditions that I capture at weddings in Mexico.
Miriam and Mualimu are fearless, dove right in, got dirty in the countryside, climbed down riverbanks, wove their way through the cornfields and put up with immense amounts of intense sunlight. I couldn’t be happier that they did, we were able to make some great images together. So here’s to Miriam and Mualimu, ¡felicidades queridos! Wishing you both the most fantastic adventure as a married couple!
