Perry & Jessy. A Love Story.

Perry & Jessy have traveled the world living out of suitcases while building a company inspired by their love for each other and for creating custom pieces (bands) that truly reflect the unique love story of the people that wear them. I found a few lines from their website that highlight what they want their pieces to represent…

“Each thoughtful piece is a testimony to our human yet romantic nature of crashing through life with the elegance of an avalanche, learning from each scratch and dent we pick up along the way”

We saw first-hand how love can truly take you places and how important that journey is to living a life of abundance. We knew we wanted to combine our talents and work together to create something where love’s journey could be celebrated

Whenever these two arrive to a new place on their journey, typically Jessy peruses the book collections while Perry finds a comfy spot to play music. In between exploring their surroundings, Perry sets up his workshop to work on custom bands.  Seeing how much passion he puts into creating each band was incredible.  I also love that he’s had to invent new processes to get the unique look and feel that their pieces have.  I recommend taking sometime to learn more about Rhodes Wedding Co. here.

My hope with this session was to create something that they could keep and treasure for the rest of their lives, just as they do for their couples.  After spending only two days with them, I’m convinced they’re some of the sweetest, most genuine people I’ve ever met and I’m honored to call them friends.  We had honest conversations that will stay with me for years to come and I’m so incredibly grateful for the impact these two have made in my life in such a short time.  Love you guys.

    Wow…..dude this is really inspiring.

  2. Paul Krol

    This may very well have been the best blog post I have ever seen. Its certainly top 10. Nirav, you do an amazing job of capturing/showing the mood. I wasn’t able to listen to the music you attached but I barely needed it. I felt something when looking at these pictures and that doesn’t happen often. I said “wow” a few times as I was scrolling. I tip my hat to you, sir.

  3. Alberto

    Amazing Nirav! Congrats!

  4. Hanna

    Incredible work: spectacular intimate meeting of two souls captured in such a sensitive way…simply beautiful as all of your shots, really. It must be an incredible feeling to be able to do what you do. Can’t even imagine how amazing it must be.

Chris & Megan. Mount Tamalpais Wedding.

I’ve been wanting to shoot a wedding on Mt. Tamalpais since I became a wedding photographer. It finally happened…and it was amazing.

Megan and Chris are just incredible people. You instantly feel at ease around these two and can’t help but to smile. Megan actually came to my home a few months before the wedding just so we could get to know one another better. I really liked the fact that only a small fraction of our conversation was about the wedding and the rest was about our life experiences, families, and inspirations.

It was an honor to document their story.

A big thank you to Bianca Morra for shooting this day with me.

    Art. All of it. The movement and emotion in those bride and groom portraits with the wind blowing through her dress and hair is perfection.
