My family grew up around Jessie’s but our paths haven’t crossed since we were both kids. Speaking as a former adolescent, it’s such a treat to reconnect with someone who has fully matured into an aware adult. The opportunity to photograph someone’s wedding gives you a deep gaze into the makings of that person, and I am so glad that I was blessed to work with these two. They are quality. Sam and Jessie are the sort of people you remember. Jessie is compassionate and empathetic, and Sam is self-possessed and hilarious. These two were married in Ann Arbor earlier this summer, and their wedding was the perfect balance of celebration and mindfulness.
Enjoy these highlights.
