Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. And one couple wantsÂ Barack and Michelle Obama to know just howÂ much they areÂ missed.
Newly engaged Cassi and Adam wanted to pay homage to the former President and First Lady for their engagement photo shoot. With the help of Cleveland-basedÂ photographerÂ Natasha Herber, they did exactly just that.
Herber recently shared some outtakes of the coupleâs shoot on Instagram, comparing their photo with a photo of the former First CoupleÂ found in the October 2016 Essence issue. Looks pretty similar, huh?
With the help of Herbert and event plannerÂ Covesa Gragg, the couple was able to pull off this incredible feat.
âWhen our Bride and Groom said âCan we try and duplicate one of their famous shots for our engagement pics?â I was like letâs do an entire shoot- we can do this and this and THIS!â GraggÂ told Essence.
In addition to this particular iconicÂ moment, Cassi and Adamâs shoot also includedÂ on-point recreations of Barack and Michelle embracing before the March 2009 National Newspaper Publishers Association reception and the two snuggling at the 2015 World Expo in the White House Diplomatic Reception Room.
We absolutely love this!
