Just a little over two years ago, I was studying abroad in Paris and remember being very excited for these two to come visit, so that I could show them some of my favorite spots in the city. On a warm summer afternoon, the three of us shared colorful Pierre Hermé macarons, walked through the cobblestone streets of Paris, and spent an evening sitting & talking on the steps in front of Sacré-Cœur. It feels like not too long ago, I was taking photos of them at the lovely Jardin du Luxembourg and fast forward to this past weekend, I had the opportunity of taking their engagement photos at the lovely San Jose Municipal Rose Garden. It was a delightful afternoon walking through the garden with Jack and Jasmine while capturing their joyful, silly, fun-loving relationship. One of my favorite memories of these two actually happened about a year ago, when our church was organizing a Pastor's Appreciation Night. Jasmine choreographed a dance and body worship to "God's Great Dance Floor" and was open to teaching anybody who wanted to learn. Jack and I both decided to be a part of it. I remember seeing Jack put in a lot of effort to learn the dance during the practices and seeing Jasmine give him constant encouragement. Through those practices, I not only saw their love for each other, but also their dedication to showing appreciation to the pastors at our church. Over the years, I'm glad to have witnessed how these two have loved and supported each other as well as the ways they've become so involved at our church. So excited for what's in store for them as they get married and start this new season of life together!
Just capturing as I go.
