Deja & Jordan

I guess if you live long enough you get to experience some neat "life stories". I am so proud to write this blog on Deja Carbee and Jordan Sessa, mostly because I've known Deja ever since she was 4 years old. Amazingly, I taught her in the Preschool Sunday School Department at Sheridan Hills Baptist Church. (Wow, Deja, you're getting old!) This is such a treat for me to not only watch her grow up, but now to see her as a young woman who is getting ready to marry a really awesome man in the name of Jordan.

If I tell you that the three of us had a great time creating their Love Story images that would be an understatement. We had a blast. I must confess that Jordan threw me a curve. You see I'm 6'5" in height and I believe Jordan is a little taller than I am and another 2' shorter than Deja. So, I was kinda stuck in the middle while photographing the two of them which provided some tough and interesting compositional challenges.
However, Deja and Jordan are two beautiful young people that can't look bad in pictures no matter what they do.

For me this session reminded me of the phrase "circle of life". I suspect that one day I may have the opportunity of photographing Deja and Jordan's first child. What a treat that would be for me as a friend of the
family and a professional photographer. It doesn't get any better than that.

Deja and Jordan, I'm looking forward to your upcoming wedding. I know it's going to be a great day for you, but it's going to be a very special day for me too. I wish you and Jordan many years of happiness.


Enjoy!

Willie
