Jessie had come over to a friend's place in college to watch the OC. As she and her friend baked cookies before plopping down on the couch, Gerrard was folding laundry and vigorously snapping his shirts to get the wrinkles out. Jessie was a little perturbed by all the snapping but it turns out Gerrard was fun to be around and could always make her laugh. After about a semester of hanging out as friends, they started to date!
In 11 years that they have been married there have been lots of changes. They have lived in multiple different states, held plenty of different jobs, and started new ventures together like podcasting! Some changing were fun and others less so, but in the end their marriage was their anchor and their love overcoming even the most difficult times.
I first met this power couple almost 3 years ago when I started shooting for Jessie's business' Style and Pepper + Season. They have been so welcoming, kind, and encouraging to me and I immediately felt like I had a big sister and brother to look up to!
And I was STOKED, when I finally had to chance to take photos of the two of them! Our sunrise session at the Corona del Mar tide pools was uh-mazing! They frolicked in the sand, made one another laugh to no end, and even climbed over huge rocks to get to a sweet location!
They are the best and I am SO excited to share these images! Enjoy!
I would be thrilled to tell your love story!
