Jonathan + Plymouth 🀆 Julian, North Carolina

I met Jonathan Oliveau while I was literally running to my car trying to get back to Durham, NC in time for my wife to take our car (side note: last year we traded our 2nd car in for a bike). Anyways, he was the first person I met as I pulled into his farm-style home in Julian, North Carolina.  

I was there for a fashion shoot with some models and his wife happened to be one of the make-up artists for them.  

As I talked to him I could tell he was creative, ambitious and a dreamer.  He wore this wondrous hat that I couldn't help but covet portraits with.  

After I finished the fashion shoot, I ran into his home and asked him to grab his hat and leather jacket if he was willing.  He was.    

Lesson Learned: trust your gut and don't be afraid to ask people for what you want.  Sometimes people need courage.
