When I rode with Jean and Kevin to the State Fair last autumn for their engagement session, I got a chance to really talk with them and get to know them. Jean handed me a few photo albums to look through – one for each year of their relationship. That’s the kind of couple they are – they make time for what’s important. I know it’s not easy to take the time to make photo albums of all the important events you experience in a year, to tell the person you love how much you love them, to give your attention to those who are most important to you. But that’s exactly what Kevin and Jean do… they take that time. They prioritize what’s important, and I love that about them.

Their wedding day was the same way. They loved on one another, they took their time, they experienced the day together. As a photographer, I see so much rushing and hurrying and hustle and bustle. It was so refreshing to be a part of this day – a day that the couple truly enjoyed.  Kevin and Jean also went out of their way to love on their guests! I was amazed at how much they loved on their guests (who were almost all from out of state!). It was such a sweet day.

Kevin and Jean – keep doing what matters. Keep your focus on what’s important. Keep being an example to all of us around you, as you grow in your love for one another. There is no doubt in my mind that you two will live long and happy lives together. Blessings to you!

Excellent shoots, Nancy. From the photos I can see their deep love. Blessing to them! :)

The group shots are so beautiful, Nancy!

Nancy and Will,
Kevin and I would like to express our sincere gratitude for the beautiful photos you have taken on our wedding day! You have truly captured the most precious and fun moments of the day. The color and sharp detail of each picture is absolutely perfect! The girl’s peacock blue colored bridesmaid dresses look stunning and the groomsmen look pretty darn dapper themselves. Some of our favorite pictures are the group shots downtown Raleigh and the intimate photos in the garden behind the Cathedral. Though, I selfishly look at the whole album at least one a day… all of the photos are truly amazing!
Thank you again!
xoxo Jean and Kevin
