Once in a while, we get clients that are so carefree and happy, all we have to do is show up and capture that sweet spirit. This was the case with these two love birds. We visited Kevin and Kristyn for their engagement session in Shelby, NC so we could get photos on Kevin’s family land. This is also the place Kevin proposed, on a super cold and windy day that had Kristyn wondering why Kevin wanted to “talk a walk” in conditions like that, that is, at least until she saw the spotlight on the tree he had carved in.
Here’s what they had to say about each other:
How did you two meet?
We met through a mutual friend, Peter Wilkins. I (Kristyn) worked with him at Prescriptions Plus and had gone to him for advice on how to cancel a date with a guy I really wasn’t interested in, and out of the blue Peter says “Oh my gosh you need to meet Kevin!” He and Kevin barely knew each other from showing cattle together years ago so it was quite random that he think to put us together like that. He showed me a picture of Kevin and I said “yes I believe I do need to meet Kevin!” He messaged him on facebook the Kevin added me and we started messaging back and forth and the rest is history. We are very grateful for Peter! 🙂
For Kevin: What do you love most about her?
Aside from her stunning good looks, her personality is out of this world. From the moment we met we instantly clicked and talked and laughed like we had known each other for years.
For Kristyn: What do you love most about him?
I love how goofy he is and that we can be goofy together and have the best time! He makes me laugh all the time and allows me to completely be my goofy self and loves me for it. I love how he looks at me and makes me feel like the only girl in this world. I also love his outgoing personality and his many many talents. There is not a day that goes by that he doesn’t impress me.
With Kevin and Kristyn, what you see is what you get. This session for us felt like we were shadowing them on a typical Friday night date, and their true blue genuineness and warmth made our “job” fun, inspiring, and super easy.
We don’t know how we get to work with the sweetest people on the planet, but we do! Jordan was one of the most fun, easygoing, and happy brides we’ve ever seen, and Ben is the guy they said “kept his mind about him, even while he gave his heart away.” They are the perfect match, and their wedding made for a lighthearted, but deeply meaningful day.
Congratulations Jordan and Ben!

David has been a friend to both of us for several years, but when he worked as our summer intern in 2013, he became more like a brother. His cool head, sharp wit, and sweet and willing spirit helped give us one of our most productive and fun years we’ve had. (And we listened to a lot of great music.) When David visited a few months ago and told us he had a diamond burning a hole in his pocket, we knew the girl that caught his eye must be pretty special. We were oh-so-right.
Exactly six months since their first date, we met David and Ellen in Mount Pleasant and then Charleston for their engagement session. (What a way to remember a special day!) They were just as playful, classy, and visibly in love as you would hope for two starting their journey together. “I honestly love everything about Ellen, from her beautiful smile to her kind and gentle spirit,” David said. “I love her faith, and that is easily the strongest bond we have. We pray, discuss scripture, and worship together, and her faith inspires me. She also has a care and passion for other people, and it shows in the way she treats her students in the classroom.” (She’s a 7th grade Math teacher, which already speaks to her character!) He said, “she earnestly cares for each and everyone, and I’m lucky enough to be the one that she cares for most. I look forward to learning from her and growing stronger with her in the years to come!”
Ellen said it was hard to pinpoint what she loved most about David. “We know that we’re not perfect by any means, but David and I both feel that we’re perfect for each other – which is a wonderful gift, but also makes it hard to describe what we love the most!” She says, ” I love David’s faith in Christ. He lives out his faith intentionally and loves others so well. I can honestly say that through David, I get a glimpse of Jesus’ love for me. I love David’s leadership. I’ve never felt more safe and comfortable with someone, yet challenged and encouraged to grow at the same time.” The security and ease they give to each other is something we noticed, too. “I also love his sense of humor,” Ellen says. “David has this wonderful combination of wit and cheesiness”–also noticed!– “and some of my favorite memories are the two of us doubled-over in laughter. I can’t wait to spend my life with him!”
David, buddy, you chose very well. Ellen did too. 🙂 We love you both!
