As of my uncle’s wedding this past Thursday, I gained a new cousin!! The few times I have met Jessica she has been nothing but sweet and kind. She recently got engaged to her boyfriend of many years, Owen, in Paris, France (how romantic, right?!).
I met Owen last week while we were at the beach getting prepared for my uncle’s wedding. We rode the waves and talked camera stuff, as he has done quite a bit with his camera and enjoys photography himself. We then arranged to do engagement pictures at Jockey’s Ridge Wednesday evening right before sunset. It was a beautiful evening and my first time visiting there (it’s amazing and if you’ve never been you have to go!). From the minute I started photographing Jessica and Owen they were completely relaxed, cooperative, and fun. These two were a dream to photograph!! As we were walking back to our families after taking engagement photos, Owen asked if my siblings and I would like to do devotions with him and Jessica. At first, I was completely surprised at the question and then, as his question sank in, I was completely overwhelmed. How blessed I am to gain a new cousin and her fiancee who had such a heart for God that one of the first things they wanted to do with us was Bible study! Yep, they’re pretty great and I can’t wait for their wedding next year!! :)
Enjoy their engagement photos!
