These two. Emily and Bryan. They met through mutual friends many years ago. One of Bryan’s closest friends was trying to set the two of them up but it wasn’t until they ran into each other while helping a friend move that they met face to face and the rest was history. Emily and I have known each other for a while through Young Life (both her and Bryan were leaders in Raleigh with Jamie and me) and we got to know each other even more when we worked at Monkee’s together for a short time. Bryan is also best friends with one of my best friend’s brothers!. With these two, so many of my worlds collide and I just love it! It feels like I’m photographing family, which is such a joy.
My favorite thing about these two is the way that they love people. Emily is bubbly and intentional, and every single time we get together she goes out of her way to ask me about everything that she knows is important to me. When we’re together she listens intently and makes me feel like I’m the only person in the room. This is something that I admire in her so much. Bryan is kind and so thoughtful. He put others before himself and is a true Southern gentleman. These two always have each other laughing and they love Jesus fiercely, so much so that the most important thing to them about their wedding day is that people see His great love in every detail and have a deeper understanding of the meaning of marriage. I absolutely love that about them.
Biggest congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs. Bryan Ball! I am so excited and honored that you chose me to photograph this special time in your lives and can’t wait for your Summer wedding weekend!
