Massy Arias and Stefan Williams
A couple that gets fit together, stays together! At least that’s the motto for Massy Arias and Stefan Williams. The two fitness influencers/personal trainers often post videos of themselves doing couple-friendly workouts together.

Adrienne and J. Muse
Janeeka Muse (who rose to fame for her viral portrait of Michelle Obama in 2016) and wife Adrienne Muse might be the most artistically talented couple on the web. The married painters have seen their fair share of hard times, including homelessness and criticism from their families for being in a same-sex marriage. But it was their love that helped them perservere. J. and Adrienne’s work has been showcased at our very own ESSENCE Festival!

R. H. Sin and Samantha Holmes
This author couple captures the language of love like nobody else. But they walk it just as well as they talk it. The couple wed in 2017 and just welcomed their first child this month. The love and admiration they share not only for one another, but the mutual respect they have for each other as writers, is truly inspiring.

Francis Garner and Kerry Robinson
What we love about this military couple is not only their fun relationship, but their daughters’ spunky personalities. The garners will often share fun videos featuring their daughter Jayde Kamille (who we’re obsessed with) and her one-year-old sister Avery. Its a full-on family affair!

Meet one of the flyest couples on Instagram. Khat Brim (also the founder of Hair Are Us) and her husband Frank are black love personified.
