Jess & Kevin's Beach Engagement

Last week I had the pleasure of spending my Saturday Night with two AMAZING people.

 

Are you likely to see them on the news or watch people clamor to take a selfie with them? Maybe not, but to me they are heros. Why?

 

To see the woman Jessica is, how she has pushed through every obstacle and health struggle that has been placed in her path but only came out stronger, kinder and more loving. To see the way Kevin looks at Jessica with love...a lovethat has seen her struggle and stood by her side from a man that stands by her side ready to carry her when she's not sure she can take another step, to put her feet back on her path, who is ready not to walk ahead or trail behind but always be the man standing beside her facing life's struggles and celebrating life's beauty together every step of the way.

 

Before I get too carried away and I lose sight of my screen for the tears of love and joy for these two (yep- I am that sappy/emotional) I want to hand it over to Jessica & Kevin to tell you a little bit more about who they are.

In their words...

 

How long have you known each other? 2 years

 

How did you meet?

We met online! It's embarrassing, but becoming the norm for meeting people. Our first meeting was magical! When did you know your fiance was 'the one'? (both answer please) We both knew on our first meeting that there was something very special between us. We had a magical first date which included a beautiful drive, a walk on the beach, dinner and fireworks on the beach. After that first date, we were inseparable. Soulmates. We would ready to get married that first week together.

 

What is your favourite thing about your fiance? My favourite thing about Kevin is his kind and gentle spirit; he is very sweet and caring. - Jess

My favourite thing about Jessica is her empathetic ways. - Kevin

 

What do you love to do together? We love to sit at home together and watch movies or binge on a good TV series. We also love our family time. When we have both our children (Aiden and Jillian) at the house, we enjoy spending time at the park. We are very low key!

 

Is there anything else you'd like to share? We both feel complete and have feelings of wholeness as a family since finding each other. We are truly blessed. Not everyone finds their soulmate, their other half! The one who understands them on that other level!

Port Frank's Sunset Beach Engagement Portraits - Jessica & Kevin's Engagement Sneak Peek

Sunset in Port Franks with Jessica & Kevin for their Engagement Portrait session  

I still remember opening up my email to find an inquiry from someone named Jessica. She was inquiring about my wedding photography services.

 

The more we chatted, the more it felt like this was someone that I was meant to serve. Jessica is a beautiful, kind, and loving woman who has faced many struggles in her life but she and her fiance Kevin had weathered them. It was these struggles that connected Jessica and I even more. Not just as photographer and bride, but as friends who understood at least some of what the other had been through.

 

Together with their children, I am excited to be sharing this journey with Jessica & Kevin. I can't wait to celebrate their marriage with them in October. I know it's going to be a very personal and emotional day.

 

For today, just one little teaser image. Keep your eyes out for more of their engagement portrait session and their story coming very soon.
