The Wedding of James & Louise
March 2012, Lafayette

I first heard of the wedding of James (Jimmy) and Louise through a friend. She told me that she had pitched my photo services to a friend of a friend getting married. My friend told me that Jimmy and Louise met while collaborating on an art installation for Burning Man, during which they fell in love. Originally from the UK, Louise would have had to leave the states for nearly a year before being permitted back on a work visa. So they decided to get married! I knew I had to shoot this amazing story of fearless love, so I pitched my services again when I didn't hear back - the couple was planning on simply enlisting the help of a family friend to photograph the event. I offered to work with their budget and got the gig. And boy am I glad!

The family rented an eccentric custom home nestled away in the hills of Lafayette to host the intimate affair. Despite the rain, everything was warm and welcoming, and I captured these beautiful images.
