THIS girl…..where do I even begin to put into words what a gem she is. Let’s see, first of all she is a rare find. A godly young woman who has sought the Lord and His will for her life and marriage. Secondly, her personality is a mash up of quirk, spunkiness, classy, and country all mixed together into a big heaping plate of awesomeness. Thirdly, she’s just drop. dead. gorgeous. When Jane called me and asked about doing her bridal portraits, I thought about it for about 1 second before saying “YES!”. As soon as I saw her in her simple sheath, I knew that our session was going to be unforgettable.
We took these pictures at Jane’s parents home. They live on an incredible piece of land that juts out like a little peninsula into the Pasquotank River. The sun was just setting and the magnificent horses were groomed to perfecting, making this session one that will go down as a favorite for years to come. We started out in the living room in her immaculately curated home, before taking the show into the yard to play with the horses. As the sun sank behind the tree line, we waked onto the dock for a last few minutes of shooting in that golden moment that exists just between sunset and twilight.
Jane, thank you so much for being not only a breeze in front of the camera, but for being a role model to girls everywhere of what it looks like to seek after the heart of God and to trust Him to bring your dreams to fruition. I am so proud of the beautiful woman you are and of the helpmeet that I know you are going to be to your husband. Congratulations!!
