rustic river engagement
  • Craig + Bev | Engaged

no clue how to start this post. Who do I talk about first? Craig, who I’ve known since middle school? Or Bev, the girl that let me spend the night in her room so I could come and visit Michael after he left for college. Both Bev and Craig are so close to my heart and I’m really  having a hard time trying to explain how amazing these two are in words.  You just need to meet them. If you were to hang out with them you would realize that 1. Bev has the most gorgeous smile and a joyful laugh that comes with it, 2. Craig is a pro at making Bev laugh, 3. They LOVE the Lord and 4. they are perfect for each other

…. really. You can just tell.  However, if you had told me years ago that the Craig that I sat beside in my high school english class would be marrying Beverly Waller, one of Michael’s friends that I loved from CNU… I wouldn’t have believed you! Craig and I were friends in high school. He played football and I was a cheerleader so our paths crossed often.  We knew each other enough to have casual conversation. Then we graduated and were the ONLY two students from our high school to attend CNU.  Luckily, once we settled into college, my friend group and Craig’s friend group ended up being the same amazing people.  I saw craig all the time and he became a part of my life. Then there is Bev. I met Bev when I was an emotional junior in high school that wanted to go visit her boyfriend at college EVERY possible chance she could. I would beg my parents to let me go visit Michael but of course, I didn’t spend the night with him, I stayed with Bev.  She didn’t know me at all… but she treated me like she did.  Bev is one of my favorite people and I have come to adore her the last 6 years.  She has this simple way of making people feel SO loved and cared for.


So naturally, when two friends that I love and care about begin to date and fall in love with each other……I am THRILLED!!!! Seeing them together, it all makes sense. They dated throughout college and after Craig and I graduated, I had a feeling that there would be a ring coming one of these days.  Easter weekend of this year came and as I was sitting at dinner with our families, I noticed I had two missed calls from Bev and no voicemail. I thought this was strange and then it hit me!!!!!! I immediately and rapidly excused myself from the table and ran outside of the restraraunt  to hear the exciting news….. CRAIG AND BEV ARE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!!!! YESSSSSSSSS!!! I’m sure ALL of Shortpump Mall heard me scream! I’m so happy for them. So so happy. It was such a huge honor to shoot their engagement session and see their love for each other through my lens. I can’t WAIT to show you. Bev and Craig, I absolutely loved our time together. It was such a refreshing and joyful session and I left feeling so blessed that I know both of you. Michael and I are so thankful you two are in our life!!!!!! Enjoy!!


LOVE them. I mean, how can you not love them?! Look at them!

yessss! Love this one! I’m sure all of those people in the laundry mat that were just trying to wash their clothes in peace were getting a little aggravated with me! I tend to get obnoxious when I get images that I know are “blog worthy”!:)

#1 favorite. I love everything about it. Bev, you’re gorgeous!

Moving on to the river! River engagement sessions are always beautiful…. but when you have some old buildings and boats around, that makes it even better!!

ah!!!! Beverly!

Craig that model face of yours is impressive….


Bev I can’t WAIT for your wedding day!!!

You two couldn’t be any better looking… this is perfect.


As soon as we walked in here I knew this was going to be good…. and I wasn’t disappointed! The light was awesome!!

Seriously Bev?!



Now we’re headed down to the beach! Really, this session couldn’t have been any better!

Bev is super creative and had such a fun vision for their session but Craig made the sign! I was impressed:)


Work it girl!
