While we won’t have the pleasure of photographing Miriam and Mualimu’s wedding later this year, we were fortunate to spend some time with them before their big day. Mualimu grew up in Oakland, which made our first stop a no-brainer. Downtown Oakland brims with colorful murals and lovely Art Deco architecture, while nearby Old Oakland boasts broad, leafy sidewalks and carefully restored late-19th-century buildings.
It’s pretty crazy how quickly time flies when you’re running around laughing, being adorable (them, not us!), and chasing the sunlight. Before we knew it, it was time to head over to Emeryville’s Marina Park to catch the sunset, which was spectacular in its rainbow sherbetiness. Here’s a glimpse of the brief time we spent together. We wish them the most magical wedding day ever!
