As I looked back on Jessie & Joe's wedding, pleased as punch with the awesome pictures we were able to take that truly reflect their character and their passion, something remarkable came to mind. I have known Jessie for several years and have seen God make a huge triumphant victory in her life (if you've followed this blog and my previous blog, you've seen her making appearances every few months). It was said many times during their wedding day and as they prepared for marriage, but it is true to see how God restored a muddy view of love into the remarkable gift that it really is. How clearly she can see that now. But a few years ago, there was a season when I was spending a lot of time praying with Jessie, though I barely new her at the time. She was brokenhearted and simply wanted to know love. She wanted to be a wife and to have a devoted father to her son. We prayed for that, trusting God for the outcome to be not only his perfect will, but to be perfect for her as well.
I am thankful to know that God answers prayers, and that I got to photograph the proof.
Square One Brewery & Distillery in the Lafayette Square area. The staff there was so accommodating as we took over their patio for a little while.

Many thanks to Casey for her second shooting expertise. Great Job!
