When I first decided to pursue a career as a photographer I was both elated and relieved. For the first time in my life I could finally envision myself as a professional, and I knew I had it in me to do everything it took to get there.
What I couldn't anticipate was how much I would enjoy every aspect of the job. These beautiful people make me so grateful I started this journey. Grateful that I get to share in their love story and document this incredible time in their lives.
Jamie is from the Bay Area. James is from Ireland. They met in Budapest, Hungary where they were both teaching English after undergrad. They later moved to Krakow, Poland, where they lived and continued teaching English for two more years. They got engaged in 2013 (on a surprise return trip to Budapest, well done James!) and then moved to Auckland, New Zealand.
They just returned to the Bay Area, and a week from tomorrow they will be surrounded by family and friends in the backyard of Jamie's childhood home. They will say their vows and then they will be man and wife! I cannot wait to document their day.
Congratulations Jamie and James, I am so happy for you two!
