Brandi + Rickey: soulmates

A person with whom you have an immediate connection the moment you meet — a connection so strong that you are drawn to them in a way you have never experienced before. As this connection develops over time, you experience a love so deep, strong and complex, that you begin to doubt that you have ever truly loved anyone prior. Your soulmate understands and connects with you in every way and on every level, which brings a sense of peace, calmness and happiness when you are around them. And when you are not around them, you are all that much more aware of the harshness of life, and how bonding with another person in this way is the most significant and satisfying thing you will experience in your lifetime. You are also all that much aware of the beauty in life, because you have been given a great gift and will always be thankful.

Beautiful, deep passionate love. It inspires me. It ignites the fire that burns inside of me. It pumps the blood that flows through my veins and it is truly the root of everything I am and everything I do.

Brandi and Rickey are soulmates. Without a doubt. It’s so obvious how much of a perfect match they are. How beautifully their souls are intertwined. I am truly blessed to call them my friends.

They were recently married and asked me to document their love story through my art. We began planning our ideas and together, we created something so beautiful. Something I am so proud of and something I know they will cherish for the rest of their lives.

Brandi and Rickey thank you for letting me a part of your lives and your love. It was a true honor to photograph the beautiful, intimate love you both share. I am so happy to be your friend. XO

Please enjoy the story of Brandi and Rickey’s love and marriage.

My heart to you is given:
Oh, do give yours to me;
We’ll lock them up together,
And throw away the key.
-Frederick Saunders

I love this quote so much for these two. Brandi has a heart locket tattooed on her chest. And Rickey has a locket key with the name “Brandi” tattooed on his leg. It’s so perfect.

Don’t mind us, we love unicorns and like to randomly throw it in the shoot.


When I am with you, the only place I want to be is closer.  -Author Unknown
