Zack + Emily | The School Sessions | A Williamson Street + Olin Park Engagement Session.

April 15, 2015

Today’s engagement session is a VERY special one!! You might have seen us post about this already, but it’s worth sharing at least one last time!! 

It all began with Jamie Delaine + Randy Watson … newlyweds, passionate about helping others. Since their first date, the two have been dreaming of ways to combine their talents (photography, business, construction + leadership) + passions to make a difference in the world around them. Out of this vision, The School Sessions was born. 

THE SCHOOL

E.C.C.A. School (Ecole Chretienne du Centre de L’Agneu) was founded in 2007 by Mr. Duckenson + Mrs. Francois Laguerre. Five years ago, a horrific earthquake completely destroyed their building (along with thousands of other schools), but the Laguerres continued to teach, allowing many kids to attend their programs for free. Laguerre remembers, “In spite of our building being destroyed, parents sent their kids to our school. We asked why they chose ECCA, they said: ‘You inspire in us faith, hope + a future for our children.’” Operational funding for ECCA is provided by a family’s ability to pay along with support from Hope Force + other organizations. If they can afford it, tuition fees are $160 a year per student, but many children attend every year for “next to nothing.”

THE BUILDING

The School Sessions was created to raise $200,000 to buy land + fund construction of a ten-classroom, concrete, earthquake- and hurricane-proof building. The partner organization, Hope Force International, will be managing all funds + working with a local contractor on the project. The Laguerres, other teachers and families of students in the community will all be involved in this project, volunteering their time to make the building happen. 

THE SESSIONS

On one day, April 12, 2015, photographers from around the world partnered with their clients to provide photo sessions in which 100% of the client’s session fee was given to help building a new school for the families of E.C.C.A. 

Zack + Emily’s engagement session was one of them. 

LOVE: for each other + for the families of E.C.C.A in Haiti. 

Your hearts RADIATE, you two!! Your JOY + selflessness is undeniable!! 

I am OBSESSED with Emily’s ring!!!!
