Jaqueline + Joel

Jaqueline + Joel

I have a man-crush on Nirav Patel. There I said it. Why wouldn’t I? Photographically, he has one of the most innovative voices in the game and as a person, he’s just the coolest/nicest dude out there. But this post isn’t about my man-crush or the fact I got to shoot with him this summer, it’s about Jaqueline & Joel, and their beautiful wedding in Naches, WA. It was a really special day and revisiting these images makes me realize how extremely grateful I am to be a part of something this huge. Thank you, Nirav, for having me out. You’re an inspiration as an artist and a friend. And you need to teach me about that child labor thing you have going on.

And to everyone else, if you haven’t seen the man’s work, go check it out. Unless you were thinking about hiring me ;)
