“Prayer in action is love, and love in action is service. Try to give unconditionally whatever a person needs in the moment. The point is to do something, however small, and show you care through your actions by giving your time … We are all God’s children so it is important to share His gifts. Do not worry about why problems exist in the world – just respond to people’s needs … We feel what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean, but that ocean would be less without that drop.“- Mother Teresa
My utmost desire is to serve you; to walk along side you during this once in a lifetime life you live. And for you to feel loved, cherished, understood, and genuinely cared for.
I’m not there just to take a snapshot for the sake of snapping a picture. I’m there to share your story in a way that will authentically tell of your love, your connection, and your relationship with the ones you hold dear. I want to document the tender, the emotional, the joy, the newness of where your life is in the here and now. So that when you face trials and hardships, you’ll be able to pull out these precious images to remember why. Why you fell in love in the first place. Why you committed to forever. Why you started a family. For the reasons why and the memories laid out, you’ll draw strength and courage. As I get older and the weeks and the months and the years pass, I’ve realized how precious and how fleeting life is. That’s why my desire is not only for you or your children, but for your children’s children to look back on images of long ago and know who their great-grandparents were in that moment and what life looked like for them.
Jacqueline of Mae Rain Photo photographed Doug and I’s engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. Jacqueline was very accommodating and flexible with our work schedules and our venues of choice. Her ability to capture the outdoors and the beauty nature has to offer is incredible. She was efficient in getting our prints to us and was willing to assist in helping our wedding planner get the right image for our invitations. The day of our wedding, it was freezing temperatures outside and sleeting, but you would never know when looking at our photos how bitter cold it was. She was able to capture many candid photos of our friends and family as well as our group and individual shots. Her patience and passion for her job is brought out in all of her images. She tells a story with her photos and truly captures the beauty of the day. The images were beyond stunning and Doug and I are so very pleased with the finished product. We will forever be able to look back at this day and remember how special it was. Thank you Jacqueline for creating such a beautiful story for us.Rhea B.
