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

The couple originally wanted to do just one Obama-themed photo, but their wedding planner Covesa Kelly wanted more. “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!’” she wrote on Instagram.

The couple's photographer Natasha Herbert helped them nail the poses, and the practically perfect outfits and backgrounds don't hurt, either.

“It was great to pose and have the couple channel the emotions of Barack and Michelle in each picture,” Herbert said. “After all, the Obamas are definitely a couple who epitomize a love like no other.”

“I love when a couple can find something to inspire them and it was nice to see something that hasn’t been overdone,” Herbert added.
