As I was driving to Winston-Salem on a rainy afternoon, I was relying heavily on the weather forecast that promised only a 20% chance of rain between the hours of 3 and 5. (The rest of the day was a much higher percentage!) I arrived at The Reynolda House at 3:30, and it was quite overcast and misty out. As I walked up to the house, equipment in hand and ready to go, I was greeted with two of the biggest smiles I've ever seen. Matt and Lizzy were filled with joy. They loved being together, and they were so excited and ready for their engagement session. Rain, shine, or even mist - nothing was going to stop this from happening! I'm not exaggerating when I say their smiles and love for one another literally brightened the whole afternoon. (You'll see what I mean when you see the pictures.) Completely laid back, their attitudes of love and thankfulness were so refreshing to be around. These two are different than most, and I love that about them.
After spending just a small amount of time with them during their engagement session, I felt like I had known them for years. I think we talked for 20 minutes after the session was over, about church and life and their future. It was so sweet, and I'm so grateful for a job where I get to spend time with couples like this!
