Once upon a time...
Every great story begins with that classic opening line, and this is, indeed, a great story to share!
Nearly 4 years ago now, I had the pleasure of meeting Jordan. She came across as bubbly, spunky and definitely not afraid to be her vivacious self! I instantly liked her and knew we'd be friends for years to come. Since that very first day, I have had the privileged to watch Jordan blossom into an amazing young woman of faith, trusting in God every step of the way. Through many talks, laughs, and probably even some tears, we discussed relationships, trusting in Jesus, and life. Somewhere along the way, a certain name began making its way into our conversations: Adam. Not just any Adam, but "this may be my future husband" Adam. That's when I knew it was serious...
Needless to say, I was not completely surprised when I saw the news that Adam had proposed to Jordan, and she had indeed accepted. *True confession moment* Among my first thoughts were: I WANT TO TAKE THEIR ENGAGEMENT PICTURES!! It was apparently meant to be because during our photo shoot, I discovered that one of Jordan's very first thoughts after Adam slid the ring on her finger was: LAURA HAS TO TAKE OUR ENGAGEMENT PICTURES!! Providence - it was meant to be!
And what an amazing day we had to capture their joy - a sun-soaked golden evening among the autumn apple trees in the orchards of Pennsylvania. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting for these two lovely people! We spent the day catching up, getting to know Adam, and trying all sorts of fun ideas for our photo shoot. A special shout out to my amazing husband who (while battling a head cold) so graciously helped us get some awesome shots and gave great, creative input! I couldn't have done it without him!!
I couldn't have been more thrilled with taking this beautiful couple's photos. I was honored that they let me play such a special part in their engagement and let me capture a picture of their love (pun intended) to have for a lifetime!
Sooooo,CONGRATULATIONS ADAM & JORDAN!!! I am so excited for you both as you walk in love towards marriage. I pray that the Lord will draw you closer together as you draw nearer to Him, as He is your rock and foundation. Many blessings to you both.
