mike and kiley…married

October 29, 2014

This story starts on a gorgeous day under the Tuscan sun. MAN, I’ve wanted to use that phrase for a while now. So, where was I? Oh yes, the weather was perfect. There we were, photographing the wedding of Mike and Kiley, in the most perfect villa, nestled in the most perfect rolling hills of Tuscany. I’m not being dramatic, people. It was that perfect.

Many, many and huge congrats to Mike and Kiley! It was an honor to photograph your amazing day :)

josh and carrie…in paris

October 24, 2014

Go ahead and settle in. This is a long blog post. But, it’s PARIS. With JOSH AND CARRIE AND ME in it.

Let me rewind.

“Hey Jean, I know you’re traveling around, and I’m not sure where you’ll be, but I am surprising Carrie with a trip to Paris at the end of September for our ten year anniversary, and would love to surprise her with a photo shoot there as well. Are you available and interested?”

“Well, Josh, it JUST so happens that I live four hours west of Paris, and we are leaving France via Paris at the end of the month, so our timing works perfect! And DUH, of course I would love to photograph you there!!”

That is the shortened version of our email conversations, but you get the point.

Rewind even more.

I first photographed Josh and Carrie five or six years ago with just them and their little pup. Since then, they have had two gorgeous daughters, and I have had the privilege of photographing their family several times over the years. So, going back to our “roots”, and just shooting the two of them again, IN PARIS, was quite amazing.

So, go ahead wives everywhere, swoon away…

dom and nicole

October 12, 2014

It wasn’t to be an engagement shoot, it was a “hey, my boyfriend and I want to do a shoot together.” And it was a “let’s do more of an editorial style shoot.” And then I was like, “duh, I would love to do that, let’s do it.” So there we were and now we have one of my favorite shoots ever. Dominic and Nicole…rock…seriously.

September 25, 2014

Too dramatic of a title? Sorry. Let me explain.

We have admired (and slightly obsessed) over Iris and Light‘s work for a long time. Words do not describe how excited we were when somehow our timing, schedules, and location worked out that and we were able to work together! Dying over this video, I tell you. DYING! Iris and Light is brilliant.

Hope you love it too :)
