When I started my journey into wedding photography, I heard of this guy… Jonas Peterson. I found his work and have been inspired ever since. I can’t tell him that though because he’s a bit awkward with compliments, so I’ve learned the art of subtly. Yeah.. that Jonas.. he’s alright.
Over the past few years we’ve shot several weddings together and have become good friends. It’s been a privilege to get to know him and spend time with his lovely friends and family. His wife Jacqui is absolutely amazing. She is one of the kindest souls I have ever met. You feel instantly at ease, like you’ve known her your entire life from the minute you first meet her. And the boys. Where do I even begin. They will melt your heart with a single hug. You can easily see what an amazing relationship they have with their parents.
I’m so happy I was able to capture a few memories for them while they were in California. I love you guys so much. Jonas, thank you for believing in me and what I do my friend. I am absolutely grateful for your friendship and support. It means more to me than you’ll ever know.
Last year, I had taken a trip to India. My goal was to document the places my parents had lived and grown up in before I had come along.
Although the experience was incredible, the one thing I regret is that the indian festival of Holi (festival of color) happened two days after I had left. It would have been an absolute dream come true to have been in India for that. Since I could not experience Holi in India, I decided to bring a much smaller version of it to the California coast…
