last year i met sarah through my roommates while on a long stay in kampala, uganda. most of us had pretty intense work weeks, so on sunday’s we’d find ourselves sneaking into the local resort pool having girl’s days, soaking up the sun, and talking about life for hours.
that’s how i got to know sarah.
we’d talk about everything from our work weeks, challenges, faith, risk, and of course, boys.
sarah had just taken on a new job where she had to sign a long term contract to stay in uganda, and of course we all know how beautiful and scary those big steps can be all at the same time. she was excited, ready, but also and naturally slightly anxious that she had no idea what the future would hold outside the contract she just signed.
shortly after i left, i heard little love stories flying around about this guy named blake who entered sarah’s through the ngo she had just began working for. so this year when i got to go back and work along side of both of them, it was really cool to see how life unfolds. to see them working and integrating their greatest interests together, living along side of each other in a really beautiful land.
so much has changed in what’s going on two years now, and that is the beauty of uncertainty. to let go, trust, go where you are inspired, and you will end up right where you are suppose to be.
sarah and blake, cheers to your story and all of your adventures together. and see you in cabo where i am stoked to shoot your wedding! and to celebrate of course.
these all took place in jinja, uganda where i left a little (or big) piece of my heart, and on the source of the nile river.
