Sometimes we feel inadequate to call ourselves storytellers. Like, we may not do it justice, or we won’t capture who a couple is as fully as we hope to. Especially when their story seems more grand than we can even grasp.
A few days before we planned to meet for their engagement session, Travis wrote an email to us, telling us about a tragic fall that Jamie had experienced just a few months prior. He told us that every major bone in her skull had been broken and she had a traumatic brain injury; doctors were not convinced that she would even make it through the night. But miraculously and wonderfully, she has since recovered. This same girl who we would meet in just a few days. After reading his words, with tears streaming down our faces, we couldn’t wait to look Jamie in the eyes and tell both her and Travis what an honor and privilege it is to meet them.
This is just a glimpse of who they are. And this is just part of their story. We’re truly honored that we will be present to witness and document their marriage next summer on the very land where Jamie grew up.
