A Self-reflection

By Jalan R. Ward

*Images captured with Canon 7D Markii

On October 8th, 2020 in Jamestown, NC. I was fortunate to capture the BIG DAY for Monica & Ronald. This was my first COVID-19 booked wedding, which I hesitated doing at first. I took on the challenge of making this moment, an everlasting one for this beautiful black couple on their amazing day. With all the great things going on with the brand, the day-to-day duties I have on my plate, I took a relieving day to get back to another element within my creativity.

Photography gives me peace and tranquility. This was the reassurance I needed to remind myself how I've managed to include my other passions within TheProudBlackBrand. I incorporated my first blog post attached to the brand to show the PPB Family, and newcomers, how you can manage a world recognized brand (TheProudBlackBrand, LLC), and still maintain happiness by continuing to do the things you love. When it comes to photography, my sole purpose is to help the world by capturing moments for a lifetime. Thank you again to Monica & Ronald for believing in me to help contribute for a special occasion. I'm thankful to have been a part! View some of the photographs below, let me know what you guys think in the comments. Any type of feedback is welcomed!

Wedding was shot with:
