“Those things which are precious are saved only by sacrifice.”
relinquishing even one of your own desires for something bigger and more precious is one of the most admirable aspects in a relationship. as much as one can aspire to succeed or become the person they aim to be, there is still another half, another person, that must be considered just as quickly. when you find and commit yourself to someone, it’s also to the desires of their heart, their aspirations.
jamie and derek spend the time leading up to their wedding being states and states away from each other. she, here in seattle. he, in the air force down in texas.
I never wanted to be the girl that fell in love with someone in the military and all that comes with it.
but sacrifice takes on a sweeter meaning when it’s for someone you love and you find yourself doing things you’d never expected.
derek was a goof to shoot. love her reactions to his antics.
oh dang, wait right there.
oh my lord was i freaking out of my mind on this shoot. sure, it may have been bone chilling cold and the wind could have taken a tent off the ground, but it’s all in the name of art and for a good picture. the air force is a huge part of these two’s relationship and the dynamics of it, so it was so so special to be able to include such a personal idea to who they are.
thanks to jamie for enduring the cold and to derek for breaking the rules for me and crossing that yellow line on the air field. apparently “rule keeping’ is a quality held dear in the military.
i’ll be shooting these two’s wedding on new years eve in leavenworth. so you can just forego sending me your party invites, i’ll be ringing in the new year with these two.
