love conquers all.

jessica + holly are married!

on november 15th jessica + holly pledged their love to each other and joined their lives in the company of their most cherished family and friends. in a traditional jewish ceremony at the JCC in dupont circle, their amazing rabbi spoke of the transcendence of love and the power of two people to change the world. the wise mahatma gandhi proclaimed that “you must be the change you wish to see in the world” and i know that jessica + holly’s wedding will be another step toward lasting equality for all couples.

the day was utterly spectacular and full of moments i will cherish my entire life. i have incredible respect, awe + love for these two women and consider it a true privilege to have been witness to their union. their story is one of endurance in the face of adversity, friendship in light of challenges, and ultimately, of love’s ability to truly conquer all.

jessica + holly chose to honor their love by celebrating it, and they honored me by allowing me to document it. i am so very proud to have taken photographs that tell the oldest love story of all time: of two people who fall in love, brave every challenge imaginable to be together, and in the end, live happily ever after.

jessica + holly: here’s to your happily ever after!

this final image is my favorite. taken at the very end of the night, after the girls changed from their wedding attire into jean chic with the rest of their guests, they posed in front of the awesome human rights campaign building, a final testament to their right to love, honor + cherish each other for the rest of their lives.

    so if jessica and/or holly comment and see this…

    dear k.a.s.!
    holly bought my ring at Smyth here in baltimore. it’s a Vatche. (ask for Brian!) she designed her ring herself (the thicker one), based on mine. it was made by Quest jewelers in northern Virginia.

    jaime, our love for you and your talents knows no bounds! we appreciate you so so much. xxxo! jessica & holly
