Jess + Pawel | Valley Forge, PA

I met Pawel at college in 2003.  We were not great friends at the beginning of our architecture program, but we were in the same studio class and spent every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning together from 9am-noon.  If you had asked me at the end of the semester if we would ever speak after our years at school were over, I would have laughed.  That feels kind of ironic now because as the college years went by, and we spent countless hours in studio together, we became wonderful friends.

Pawel is one of the few people who we asked to be present at our wedding and my husband and I attended his a couple years ago.

When I met Jess at a mutual friends wedding (in between our own), I instantly loved her.  Jess is kind, incredibly genuine and, most importantly, you could read how well matched they were to become best friends and life partners.

When Jess asked me to photograph them before the arrival of their son, I was overjoyed.  There's no greater joy than spending time with my wonderful friends, preserving their memories, and celebrating all the blessings yet to come.

Thank you guys, for sharing this with me.  I can't wait to meet your boy!
