I love my job. I am a believer that God has an amazing sense of humor when he puts people together and knows exactly what kind of combustion is about to take place. Its like a chemistry class mixing beakers that you know full well by putting the two containers together that a small explosion will take place, but it never gets old watching what happens. Derek and Michelle are proof of His humor, both in how they fit ridiculously well together and the role they have played in my life and relationship with my fiance, Janelle.
In my initial meeting with them there was just something that clicked. I had no idea that in the months leading up to the wedding, Derek would be an important piece in preparing my heart for marriage as we got to spend breakfast together every Thursday, even the week of his wedding. The joy he lives from was addictive and his perspective on his bride was life-giving. So I found if fitting that on the morning of his wedding, I was the first customer in the jeweler shop purchasing the ring that I was planning to propose with and carried it with me all day in my pocket as we photographed Derek and Michelle’s love. Ok, I might have been a little extra emotional all day, but my heart saw things it never had before. I am so thankful I am on this journey with you two and I anticipate with enthusiasm the small explosions along the way.
