Culturally Rich {Ghanaian} Engagement Session in Boston: Adwoa + Samuel

Adwoa Sakyi and Samuel Lamptey connected with each other in church - several years after making each other's acquaintance there. Samuel proposed to the love of his life on a very special day in his life: his 25th birthday. In league with Adwoa's best friend and older sister, Samuel made sure that Adwoa was convinced to plan a dinner party for his birthday. Thinking that she had pulled off the surprise without a hitch (especially when Samuel showed surprise), she soon realized that the real surprise would be hers: the usually shy Sam came forward to give a speech, got on one knee and proposed to his surprised girlfriend. :)

Their culturally rich Ghanaian engagement session was shot by Raheem of Rhphotoarts with Adwoa's hair styled by Neicey's Hair Studio. This session makes us fall in love with culture all over again. :)

On Cultural Inspiration..... "Our culture is very important to us and we wanted to reflect that in the best way possible. The cloth we are both draped in is called Kente and it originates from the Ashanti Kingdom in Ghana. It is truly cherished in Ghana and has been the cloth of royalty for countless years. My grandfather (rest his soul) was chief of a village in Ghana and partly the inspiration behind the decision to wear Kente for the shoot. The original form of Kente was handwoven but in recent years, some Kente cloth is machine-made; however, its value has remained. Presidents of other countries that visit Ghana, including Presidents Obama, Clinton, and Bush, are draped in Kente cloth upon their arrival. It signifies a royal welcome. Not only did we want to showcase our culture in a bright and beautiful way, but for me, this was a great way to honor and pay respects to my grandfather."

{You Make Loving You So Easy}

He loves ..... "Sam says he loves my caring and forgiving nature. He loves that I have the ability to put others before myself without losing sight of who I am as a young woman."

She loves ..... "Sam is a strong man of God and that, coupled with his heart, makes it easy to love him. A man that prays more for me than himself is amazing to be with. He is everything I never felt I deserved and such a breath of fresh air."
