Cleveland couple Cassi and Adam went to photographer Natasha Herbert because they were looking to recreate a famous celebrity shot of their favorite presidential pair, Barack and Michelle Obama. Their wedding planner, Covessa Cragg, recommended Herbert, according to Essence, and the one photo idea became a whole shoot.
"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!" explained Covesa.
