Southern Seminary Wedding

Southern Baptist Seminary Wedding-1.JPG

I always enjoy hearing how a couple met. Isn’t it interesting how a few decisions could lead to something as significant as meeting your spouse?!

Jess and Tim met in Thailand right before she headed to China for 5 months. Tim also went back to China to finish his two year Journeyman term. Both Jess and Tim served terms through the International Mission Board.

And I need to brag on Jess a bit. After reading her vows (in English), she spoke a whole other set of vows in Chinese! You could tell both Tim and his entire family were touched at the gesture.

They chose a beautiful backdrop for their wedding in Broadus Chapel at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Enjoy!

Locust Grove Engagement Session

Jess and Tim’s Locust Grove engagement session brings me back to warmer days! Both Jess and Tim have hearts for missions and spreading the gospel (which also played a major role in how they met overseas!). I can’t wait to see how the Lord uses them as a married couple!

Highlights of their wedding day will be up on the blog soon!

Annie + Andrew's Engagement Session - Louisville, KY

Louisville Engagement Session Prospect Kentucky-1.JPG

Engagement sessions are always so much fun.  There are plenty of butterflies, giggles, excitement, and tender romance because hey, you're getting married!

I'm honored to get to work with such special people like Andrew and Annie.  Andrew is busy with grad school at the University of Kentucky, and Annie cares for people for a living as an ICU nurse - many times during the night shift no less.  While most of us are snuggled safely in our beds at night, people like Annie are wide awake taking care of the ones we love.

This couple is easy to fall for, and I think you might after scrolling through their engagement photos!  We shot in Prospect, Kentucky which has some gorgeous parks!  I'd shot a wedding there last December so the bridge pictured first was still fresh in my mind, especially the lush trees that canopy around and frame the bridge.  There's no shortage of award winning parks to choose from in Kentucky.  We have it good!

On August 4th, we'll get to celebrate their wedding and the start of their family!  It doesn't get any better than that!
