Joy & Adam – Love Story

I’ve been so excited to share this session and it’s not because these two are so photogenic, even though that is a great reason to get excited to share images! I have been looking forward to this shoot because Joy is my very best friend and I am so excited for her!!
God knew what he was doing when he placed Joy and I both at the Campus House at WIU several years ago.  I had been praying that God would place a friend in my life for this new transition and Joy was the best answer to that prayer.  Little did I know that our friendship would become more than just a friendship it would become an inseparable bond.  She was next to me when I was married and has become an incredible aunt to my daughter, so to say that I am beyond thrilled that she has met Adam is an understatement.  No one deserves happily ever after more than her, she deserves a guy who loves what she loves and appreciates her fun personality, and Adam is just perfect for her! It is incredibly evident in the way that look at one another and laugh together.  I’m so thankful that I got to capture their engagement pictures and I can’t wait to stand beside her on her wedding day.
Enjoy my favorites! Adam & Joy I’m so excited for AUGUST!!! It’s going to be here before we know it and I can not WAIT!!!!!
