l have a special place in my heart for these two. Samantha and I first met four years ago when she was planning her proposal to Jackie. She wanted a photographer to document it and I absolutely loved her vision! Sam took Jackie to several of their favorite places around Tucson and ended up at the end of Bilby Road (where I was strategically hidden off to the side). I captured Jackie opening multiple cards written by Sam and the last one ended with a proposal! It was the sweetest moment shared between the sweetest humans.
Since then I've witnessed their relationship grow and their love for each other deepen. We have also developed a friendship that I am very grateful for! We share a love of yoga and Tucson. We have even bumped into each other at yoga class!
These two have so much chemistry and they are genuinely a blast to be around! Their dreamy engagement shoot was featured on Equally Wed and you can see the whole session here. Over the years I've seen them graduate and start new jobs, all while taking their time planning their dream wedding.
The day finally arrived last August and it was one I'll never forget. You see, Sam is hearing impaired and signs to communicate (along with lip reading). Their ceremony was the most emotional, expressive, and beautiful one I've ever witnessed! Not to mention all the dancing, laughing, and fun had by everyone at the reception!
Sam and Jackie - thank you for having me along on your journey. I wish you a lifetime of love, laughter, and happiness!
