“True love is not how you forgive, but how you forget, not what you see but what you feel, not how you listen but how you understand, and not how you let go but how you hold on.”

    Jean: AMAZING photos!!!!! I absolutely LOVE them and cannot wait to see the rest. You and your husband did a GREAT job, thank you SO much!!!

  2. Patience says:

    Jean!!!! I LOVE THESE!
    Someday I want to shadow you for a wedding. You ROCK!

  3. Kristin Barbieri says:

    Jean, I knew there was a problem with your photography and now I have identified it!!! These photos, and the others you post, make me feel like I know and like all these people!! The photos are so intimate, so beautiful and it makes me want to call up Gian and Rikki and make plans for a night on the town (oops would have to fly in from Brazil and then find babysitters for the twins, etc). You make us all feel improbably good, and that’s the problem!! I have to go back about my day where the sun is not shining (for the 6th day in a row!!) Still, I love you for it! Congrats to Gian and Rikki!–don’t worry you don’t have to watch out for a stalker…I’m pretty far away…

    Thanks so much everyone! Holly…off camera flash baby! Slow shutter speed gives motion to everyone around them and the flash freezes their motion.
