Our debut styled shoot, WE ARE YOUNG is about diversity, and exploring the ways in which weddings can look and love can be expressed. That beautiful weddings include imagery past rustic chic and pastels.
I especially wanted to celebrate young black love, which I often times feel is underrepresented. WE ARE YOUNG is a representation of the vision that many millennials, like myself share toward humanity; that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.
I could take the Kansas City night
and wrap around you,
Take the neon lights and make a crown,
Take the Minnesota Avenue busses,
And for your love song tone their rumble down.
Take Kansas City’s heartbeat,
Make a drumbeat,
Put it on a record, let it whirl,
And while we listen to it play,
Dance with you till day--
Dance with you, my sweet brown Kansas City girl.
