According to the couple's wedding planner, Covesa Kelly, they originally asked for one photo but she loved the idea so much that she suggested an entire shoot.
“I miss the Obamas SO much that 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!’” Kelly captioned an Instagram post.
The final product will make you swoon.
The couple, who will tie the knot in December, recreated photos from the Obamas' classic Essence shoot and a particularly sweet picture taken before a taping for the 2015 World Expo.

“As African-Americans we admire their achievements and what they represent,” she said. “They have a love that just shines, and we wanted to capture that love in our photos.”
