Matthew 19:4-5 “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?”

I had the privilege of photographing Rev. Joe McNeill and his wife Rev. Shirrell McNeill. They not only love each other but they dig each other and it is a beautiful thing to behold. Have you ever seen two teenagers in love? The McNeill’s laugh, play, whisper things in each other’s ear and have fun together. They share a love that only God can give and sustain.

The shot below was not actually suppossed to go in the line up becaue it was a candid inbetween type of shot (which is why Rev. Shirrell is not lit with light) . In the background you can see Rev. Shirrell whispering words of love into his ear. If you look at the expression on Rev. Joe’s face then you can see the playfulness and zest that these two have for each other.


Here is another beautiful moment caught in time.


Last but not least a few portraits were captured of them as individuals…
