Cassi Pittman and her fiancé Adam are huge fans of former US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle. So much so that they decided to recreate iconic images of the former presidential couple for their engagement shoot.
The Cleveland couple’s wedding planner, Covesa Kelly, revealed on Instagram that they had asked for just one photo. But she had other plans.
“I miss The Obama’s SO much that when our Bride and Groom said ‘Can we try and duplicate one of their famous shots for our engagement pics?’ I was like let’s do an entire shoot- we can do this and this and THIS!” she wrote on Instagram.
Everything from the Obamas’ poses for a photoshoot for African American women’s lifestyle magazine Essence was replicated. The settings, Cassi’s hair, Adam’s outfits and accessories - their photographer Natasha Herbert made sure that each frame was shot just like the original.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Cassi says, “As African-Americans, we admire their achievements and what they represent. “They have a love that just shines, and we wanted to capture that love in our photos.”
