I have been waiting with so much anticipation to share these images! They are so dear to my heart, because I love this couple. Callie, as many of you know, has been working with me for almost 2 years now. During that time, I have had the privilege of watching her relationship with Jamie grow. I met them as a sweet dating couple, and now I see that they are a strong, committed, selfless couple engaged to be married. After capturing the day Jamie proposed, I was so excited to watch Callie plan her wedding and experience the joys of being married to your best friend. I am incredibly honored to capture friends whose hearts are so pure and in love with one another.

Callie is beautiful from the inside out. She has amazing style, she is focused and driven, she walks out life in joy. Callie is one of the most loyal people I’ve met – always supportive of Jamie, constantly making memories with her best friends, and caring for her family with her words, encouragement, and actions. Just overhearing her talk to those she loves on the phone encourages me to be more uplifting, honest, and real with those I love. What’s most beautiful about her is her love for the Lord and for Jamie, and her dedication to changing lives through Young Life. She is living a beautiful life, and I cherish her friendship so much.

What I love about Jamie is that he’s a strong leader, a man’s man, a hard worker, and he happens to be hilarious! (I’ve heard stories about Young Life skits he’s performed and I’m still dying to see one myself.) He loves the Lord more than anything, and he serves and loves Callie in a way that catches my attention. He’s a true gentleman in the way he opens doors for her, offers his jacket to her, and always makes sure she’s taken care of. He literally would do anything for her, and he’s  going to make an amazing husband for Callie.

These sweet engagement images were taken in Pine Knoll Shores, on the beautiful coast of North Carolina. These beaches have a lot of meaning for Callie and Jamie, since Jamie’s family owns a home within walking distance of this beach. Every aspect of this session brought me so much joy – because I know this couple really well, I could tell that it every detail was perfectly them.  On the beach, at sunset in… a beautiful gown and handsome suit. It couldn’t have been more fitting for their style. We also had a more casual time in the harbor where Jamie’s family boat is located. There was so much laughter and joy throughout the entire session; I couldn’t be happier for you, Jamie and Callie! I’m so honored to call you friends!
