Engagement: Ciji & Jesse
It's no secret that much of my success comes from the amazing relationships and connections I made during my college years at Louisiana Tech. Attending school in a small college town is no piece of cake for a self-proclaimed city boy such as myself...even though a few of my friends would argue that fact :-). After a year or two at LaTech though, the genuine people that you connect with make the experience worth it. I met Jesse during a summer camp we both worked at called LaGearUp. It's a math/science/engineering camp targeting youths who's life and background were very similar to my own. It was only a week, but the connections forged with these kids during that time still push me along today and I'm positive Jesse would agree they had the same effect on him.
That selflessness and giving of ones time I'm sure gravitated Ciji's amazing spirit toward Jesse. It was pretty immediate from meeting them together that their love had this kind of ease to it. They would get so caught up in each other as I hovered around them, that I almost felt bad having to break them out of those moments. I'm sure these two will have a lifetime of beautiful moments and I'm just glad I got to document this part.
