It was fall semester of 2014 when Marilyn and Will first met in a College Algebra class at Hinds CC. He was a freshman, she a high school senior dual enrolled to get a jump start on college. Just before the final exam He slipped her his phone number, which led to their first date on January 6, 2015 (which was a special day for me as I celebrated my 38th birthday just five days before marrying the man God chose for me)!
I love getting to know my clients, hearing their love stories and how God brought them together. It is always such a special treat when I can also get to know about their walk with Christ and the hope they have in Him for their marriage, relationship and future! Marilyn and Will encouraged me so much as we got to spend time together last week capturing this beautiful engagement season for them! The love these two have for one another bubbles over into so much laughter… which made for so many amazing images! Marilyn and Will are advancing the Kingdom full force by attacking the enemy with JOY and LAUGHTER!!
An engagement season is a time of transition, of walking through change. One of my favorite things about my job is being able to pray and support my brides and grooms through this season. Will, as I pray for you I feel so much excitement from the Lord about what He has planned for you in the new job you are starting tomorrow! I feel He has special assignments for you there. People who need more than your skills and education, but they need to hear YOUR story of how Jesus has changed your life. I also see that as you faithfully serve in your new job that you will grow in favor with the men and women you will work with. They will be drawn to you because of your integrity and the Lord will use this as an open door for you to share Him with them.
Marilyn, as you step into this last semester of college I am specifically praying for strength and endurance. The skills you are learning now will carry you forward into medical school, but there are also relationships with classmates that the Lord is calling you to go deeper with. I feel like the Lord has two specific girls that He wants to use you to bring them to salvation in Him. He is asking you to BE BOLD in sharing your story!
Marilyn and Will, it is such an honor to get to know you and pray for you both! I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of a few of my favorite images from your engagement session. I am so excited to capture all the details of your beautiful wedding in May!! It will be here before we know it!!
