Sometimes things don’t go as planned. Sometimes, what actually happens turns out to be way better than you could have imagined. Sometimes, less so. But, for Julia and Stephen, they’re ok with whatever happens because their faith is strong and they know that their best interests are being taken care of by the One that created them.
After coming home from a cruise with some friends a couple of years ago, they continued talking as the days went by. Before long, they realized that they had been talking a lot since returning home… but they didn’t want to stop. Time continued to pass and they continued to talk… and hike… and go on picnics… and enjoy every minute they had together. Then, just before Christmas, Stephen had decided he never wanted to stop talking with Julia so he asked her to be his wife.
This week they are going through one of those “less so” times. But they’re facing it and walking through it… together. And I know that they will be stronger together because of it.
Thank you both for asking me to spend last Saturday evening with you. Your laughter is still ringing in my ears! I hope that you never stop laughing together, talking together, and living life together. I can’t wait to see you again in April for your wedding! But even more so, I’m thankful you’ve found each other and I can’t wait to see how God uses the pair of you.
Laughter was not in short supply during their session… mostly thanks to Stephen!
It was a tad chilly – the fountain is iced over! – but these two didn’t really seem to notice.
They love hiking and just being outdoors… so a picnic was in order for their session :-)
Nicely done, Stephen!! This ring is gorgeous!
Wowzers, you two!!
Gosh, you guys!! It didn’t take y’all long to get used to my camera :-)
It was a beautiful winter day!
