Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience,  bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony
Colossians 3:12-14

Here is some exciting news for you guys! Vess and I a while back, tried our hand at engagement photography for one of our church friends, Jon and Steph. I'm sure there are many people out there who may relate to my "wedding obsession/fetish" and love for all things wedding-like. (Anyone else have a bookmark folder for favourite wedding photography sites?) 

I think my love for weddings stems from the JOY, PEACE, and of course LOVE that God, our father shows to us. That when we see him face to face, it will be like a wedding banquet! With celebration, happiness and thankfulness of the joy of two people, celebrating one another and coming together as one. 

This amazing couple, you may have remembered we took some snaps for their engagement party, are such generous, caring, beautiful people. On the day of our 'shoot', they packed us lunch (packed rolls, fruit and sandwiches), brought props and were up for anything that we threw at them.

Just from spending a few moments with them, you can feel their caring nature and kindness, just from their words and their actions to other people and to one another. Constantly, throughout the day, Jon would be asking Steph how she was, if she tired, too warm or if there was too much sun on her. And Steph would always be asking Jon if he was comfortable, feeling alright or getting sunburnt (cause "Jon burns easily").

Being high school sweethearts, they were so very playful and quirky with one another, always teasing and joking around, while not taking each other too seriously. We even took some pictures of them, holding their old high school photos, where Jon looked pretty much the same, while Steph looked slightly different (about which Jon enjoyed teasing Steph for a good few minutes).

What I love most about all of their photos, is the genuine smiles on their faces. That throughout the whole day, they would laugh at each other or the situation, taking everything in with easy going spirits, being simply happy to be, together. 

Some beach photography coming soon dears!

-keep smiling-
