I met Jillian when I was in high school. She was the sister of the woman my brother was marrying. So, by association, we became family when our siblings got married (that’s a thing, right? :) ). What I came to learn about Jillian (and it still continues to ring true) is that she is the epitome of a sweetheart – kind, thoughtful, intentional + caring. She is a confident + determined young woman, yet she always has a smile on her face. She is engaged to a handsome + loving guy name John. I’ve only known John for a few months, but in our few conversations + interactions, I admire his selflessness + graciousness. He also is kind + thoughtful and he is filled with integrity. Getting to know these two as a couple has been an absolute delight. I love the way they can make each other laugh, the way they encourage each other and how the care deeply for each other and those around them. In May, they will become husband + wife and I’m honored that they asked me to be there to capture their story for them.
Today, I’d love to share some favorites from their snowy winter engagement session. When they asked for winter engagement pictures, we all wanted snow… and we sure got that! We actually had to reschedule this session TWICE before we had an afternoon that was warm (enough) and safe (enough) to be outside. I’m thankful we had a beautiful sunny day when our shoot finally happened :) Enjoy!
