Katie & Jonathan's Engagement

If you think planning a wedding is hard work, imagine trying to plan one from halfway around the world. Katie and Jonathan did just that, and were able plan their upcoming wedding in Poulsbo almost entirely through Skype! It has allowed them talk with all of their vendors (including us) face to face from Israel, and we are so grateful for their creativity in utilizing this great little invention. :)

These two live lives full of intentionality, generosity, and passion. They met in unique (and super cool) medical school program at the Ben Gurion University of the Negev Medical School for International Health in Israel. When we first talked with Katie, Jon was actually in Ethiopia for the developing country experience that is required as a part of their program. Katie plans to head to Nepal for her experience later this year. They celebrate their differences and find commonality in their love for life, each other, and their passion for serving others. We are delighted to have met them and couldn't be more excited to be photographing their wedding in a few weeks!
