Ross & Leah {Engagement}



They were college friends...what she didn't know is that he was in love with her...and he waited for her to fall in love with him.
I got to see them; Ross & Leah...a couple days ago, and I just wanted to hug them both as I saw in her eyes as she looked at Ross with love...a love I knew they'd fought for, a love I knew had been put in her heart by God, a love I knew was real...and would last.
I'm excited for October...to get to capture their day...it's a miracle, and one that I'm celebrating.  


One thing that Leah knew from being my roommate and hearing me say over and over is how much I love to shoot in morning light!  Because of that, we all got up bright and early for this shoot, and I'm soooo glad we did!!  The sun light didn't disappoint!
I LOVE how easily they laugh...
I had been wanting to shoot at this art wall for some time, and this morning was the perfect opportunity... 


 

Yeah...beautiful...that's what you guys are.

Great pictures, Lizzie...I see the "love lights" glowing in both your eyes, and am excited for both of you to join the "married people" club. It is an awesome club! Ross, man do you have a big responsibility to live up to...Do you know how many "DADS" Leah has besides Mark. I am just one of many. Just kidding. Looking forward to meeting you at the HRC picnic this weekend
