Most of the photography I do is for family and friends and people connected to my community of church and the kids school. Every now and then though I get contacted by a friend of a friend kind of thing and that's how I came to meet this sweet  couple. Tim's mother is a long time friend of my sister's neighbor and family friend so when they mentioned wanting to do engagement pictures a few months ago my name popped up and I'm so glad it did.

We actually did the pictures back in April (hence the blog post title)  during spring break when his parents were visiting so it was a family event. Both Tim and Abbey are students at a local Christian college and the wedding will be back in her home state but they wanted their engagement pictures done here.

Because I hadn't met them before I was a little nervous but they were all so laid back and happy it was easy for us to settle into good rhythm and we got some really sweet pictures.

Congratulations to you both, Tim and Abbey! I know you are counting down the days until the BIG day and I pray that you continue to find love in each other and in the details of all the planning.

Being in love is not merely a feeling.
It is a deep unity maintained by the will
and deliberately strengthened by habit;
reinforced by the grace which both partners
ask and receive from God.
~ CS Lewis
