Kejana & Russ | Wedding at Whitney Peak Hotel | Reno, NV

Updated: Nov 14, 2020

There is still so much to celebrate despite what this year has brought us. In the midst of a pandemic, there is still joy to be had. While planning a wedding this year has been impossible, it is actually still possible. Plus who would want to miss out getting married on 10-10-2020? Not only is it a popular wedding date but I've been told it's also the luckiest day of the year!

Get this though, Kejana and Russ aren't actually being trendy. In fact, six years to the day they wed was when they were Facebook official way back in October 10th of 2014. So it only made sense to get married on 10-10-2020... how cool is that?

Their wedding day at Whitney Peak was nothing short of special. What's amazing about both Kejana and Russ is that first and foremost they value family and friendships. They're both salt to the earth; humble, loving, and extremely gracious. These are values that they've conveyed not only throughout their wedding day but since the day I've met them. Even though I've only known them for a short time, their authenticity has been on the forefront of the way they are as people so I wasn't surprised when they were celebrated just like they deserved.

The moment leading up to their First Look, there was a lot of excitement and giddiness. Russ was extremely happy to see his future wife! Their ceremony was filled with laughter, tears and everything else in between. The whole day was just as beautiful as I imagined it to be for them and it was amazing to feel the love radiating not only from Kejana and Russ but also from their family and friends.

Kejana and Russ, your genuine kindness and the way you both love on people so naturally is such a rarity nowadays. Not only am I grateful that you've chosen me to be your wedding photographer but I'm grateful that I've gotten the chance to celebrate with you on one of the most remarkable event in your lives! You are extremely blessed to have your moms Dionne and Shelly by your side from Day One. Your best friends Drew, Jeff, and Cyndi are definitely your ride or die peeps. You're surrounded by so much love and support they are all really rooting for your success as a couple. Keep loving each other the way you do and you'll have so much to celebrate ahead of you. Thank you for treating me as if I was one of your closest friends, it's a true honor to be a small part of your journey!

Special thanks!
