When I first saw Jordan and Brad I thought one thing and one thing only, “You understand our pain and challenge.” As I stood eye to eye with Jordan and Ryan stood eye to eye with Brad I knew we were literally made for each other. With a height difference that matches our own freak show height difference and senses of humor to boot…this was meant to be. We also knew the same challenge existed in photographing them that everyone else has run into when taking pictures of Ryan and me. How do you close in such a huge gap and keep it intimate? At some point you just have to embrace it!
Just like their height differences Jordan and Brad have some extreme personality differences. We get that too! At the core of their relationship and hearts is a deep abiding love for the Lord, ministry and one another. They perfectly balance each other out and give one another space to be who they are. They are easy to be with. The older I get the more I appreciate “ease” in relationship, especially from the get go. This will serve them well in marriage as well as in life.
One thing Jordan shared is that they like to write letters especially when traveling or living in different states/cities. We decided to play up this time honored tradition of sending love letters. A beautiful, balmy Sunday evening was spent together moseying around in the woods and in the fields capturing this sweet couples love, humor and Jordan’s steely hot lens lock.
