These are my dear friends. And this was my statement of them
"These guys are very close to me, bridging the space between my photography and my friends. Here is what I wrote before making that decision.
Turn out for photos shoots as I am in TN have been fantastic. But I want to mention Tamara and Alex, the couple that brought me out here to take care of their photos. A few years ago I could never have shot photos the way I can do now. But Tamara and Alex have stuck with me for year and keep supporting my work across the country. I am so happy to work with my friends and will miss them till I am back for their wedding. ( I cried a little writing that) Thank you guys more than others, make me consider leaving my plane ticket back to Portland in my bag Tamara and Alex"
