through a loving story of a friendship between a newly wounded soldier

encouragement, it is now a book and has been placed in the

Ronald Reagan Presidential Library & Museum. Please watch the video

James & PJ / NOH8

We met for our shoot at Shutters in Santa Monica on a pristine evening. The skies were clear, the sand was as soft as talc, all seemed right in the world. Except for one thing. They couldn't stay much longer to enjoy it's grace. James & PJ married in Canada the week prior, and were heading to live in London. PJ is from Poland and cannot be a citizen by marriage, as the laws don't recognize gay marriage. Jame is a United States Citizen. His mother is his champion. His sister is his rock. PJ is his love, but their family is separated by an ocean until the laws change. This is only possible through awareness. It is my hope you can see in James & PJ not a gay couple, but a couple who is very simply, in love.
