Back in February John had the honor of photographing his little sister Ruth’s wedding. It was beautiful.. in a little gazebo just off a gorgeous Florida beach..
I had the incredible joy and honor of standing next to Ruth as her bridesmaid, watching as she promised herself to the one she loved. I’ve always felt very protective of her, and it made me so happy, knowing the guy she was marrying, I could trust him to cherish her forever. Yes, I cried.
We got to do a mini session of one of my best friends and her boyfriend. They’re very carefree, fun people and love books and coffee and hanging out. So naturally we had a lot fun in a coffee shop/book store.
Where would I even start telling you about this couple? =} I was really suspicious of Mahlon at first. I didn’t know him at all. I had to test him. Ruth is two months and a day older than me but I still feel very protective of her. =] But over the last few months of watching how Mahlon loves her, talks to her, makes her laugh.. all my suspicions faded away.
Instead I stand back in awe of how beautiful it is when God creates love between two people. How he fills in the weaknesses of one with the strengths of the other.. both ways. How much light and life Mahlon has brought into Ruth’s eyes.
And how much she has brought into his. I love watching them together. They make love look incredible.
We had so much fun getting to create their session in such a gorgeous place- first the sunrise in an orange grove and a few hours later in a palm tree jungle!
I love how much fun they have together. How playful they are. How much they laugh.
Aren’t they just adorable together?
So excited to have John able to do some of the photos with me again! I feel like a very crippled team when I’m doing the session alone. The next photo is his..
I love watching them together, being with them together.. but mostly, I just love them. And I’m so thankful to be part of the same family. =}
Saturday morning we had the privilege of doing a sunrise engagement session of a super fun, cute couple.
I’ve been friends with Marilyn for awhile.. and the more I watch Daniel with her, I’m super impressed.
I’m sure they’re just made for each other.
I had so much fun taking their pictures! We laughed and talked and stood in the sunshine trying to warm up.. =}
Did I mention the morning light made my heart flutter?
It was really cold and so Daniel had this awesome idea of going to our coffee shop and doing some pictures there.. [and getting something warm to drink!]
I loved how fun and relaxed and in love they are..
After we all warmed up a bit they changed into some smashing outfits that highlighted their wedding colors!
I hope you guys love your photos and we cannot wait to capture your beautiful day in the spring! Happy planning!
Today I had two absolutely fabulous photo sessions. First a sunrise engagement session with a fun and gorgeous couple..
