This is Jenn. Spontaneous, thoughtful, kind, and empathetic. Our senior session with her was nothing short of magic.
Overflowing joy-laughter, brightness between and through these two. Thank you for allowing me the privilege to document your day of wonder and happiness.
Bob & Kelsey, August 25, 2017.
On June 17th, Becca and Matt began their life together among the leaves and vines.
Congratulations, and so much love to you both.
in the red dust and sun, in the mountains, in the ocean tide, I will be.
Foundation for his Ministry is a non-profit operating in Oaxaca, Baja California, and Sinaloa, Mexico. They provide homes for children without families and seek to love on and meet the needs of their Mexican neighbors.
The day before this engagement shoot, I watched a friend say goodbye to her husband as he was laid to rest. I shot their wedding film two and half years ago and remember clearly the words read at their ceremony: "for love is as strong as death." It can seem rote to a photographer, these promises of 'til death do us part' when you're documenting weddings regularly. But bearing witness to the creation of covenants is never a privilege to be taken lightly, and I was reminded of that, again, when death came far too early and left my friend a widow far, far too young.
The way humans pledge themselves to one another is nothing short of divine. Despite the painful reality that every loving relationship that lasts will one day end in death, we choose love anyway.
I walked away from Becca and Matt's engagement shoot with a heaviness and gratefulness I'd not experienced as a photographer or filmmaker before.
Because love, of course, is magic.
