We shot this engagement shoot at the beautiful Cherokee Lake in Thomasville, GA. Nikki and Anthony met through mutual friends. After dating three years, he proposed. We had a great time on this session sharing stories and laughing. They brought Anthony's adorable and well-behaved chocolate lab, Dixie, to include in some shots. They had a lot of fun in front of the camera!
Nikki and Anthony, thank you for letting us share in this special time of you lives! We are looking forward to your wedding day and having you both as a part of our church family soon! Congratulations!
A little about our weekend....we began our Friday evening doing a fav of mine--eating fish and grits (especially the white cheddar cheese grits) at my favorite restaurant in Thomasville, Jonah's Fish and Grits. Yum! Afterwards, we grabbed some coffee at the local coffee shop Grassroots (in fact, I am writing this blog post sitting in that very place). We left just before the filming of the Grassroot's version of the Harlem Shake. Haha.
Then we topped off the evening doing a fav of Rick's--listening to 4-part harmony and gospel music with the Inspirations and the McKamey's. We really enjoyed seeing some friends from college that now sing/play with the Inspirations--Dave and Dean.
I am so thankful that what started as a great friendship turned into a wonderful marriage with my man! We hope that you also had a great weekend and spent some time with someone you care about.
I loved college...I made great friends, met my husband, learn a lot!...but I never really enjoying studying for exams. I remember in college forcing myself to go to the library when I needed to study...anywhere else I would have fallen asleep or found an excuse to chat with friends.
Today is kind of like being in college again...I am spending the afternoon enjoying the library stillness and editing this gorgeousness.
You've heard the saying, "Actions speak louder than words." And while I totally agree, I think that often times we forget to use our word to share our true thoughts. Our words and actions ought to match. There is something extra special about hearing "I love you" from someone who also demonstrates love through actions.
