Meredith + Jim. Engaged

FILED IN: Engagements, People

There are times when words feel completely inadequate- that no matter what you say, nothing will come close to accurately expressing how you feel. This is one of those times.

Meredith is my oldest and dearest friend. We have seen each other through braces, bad haircuts, heartbreaks, and loneliness. To be able to photograph her now in this moment, as a strong woman who has overcome so many trials, as a joyful woman, as a woman of God, and as a woman in love – I count that one of the greatest privileges of my life so far.

Here’s what I saw in Tampa on board the Taylor Made II with my best friend and her love..

Congratulations you two! I could not be more excited for March 23, 2013.

    There are no words!!! Carolyn, you are brilliant and SO talented. I cant look at these without crying! I have so much emotion in my heart because of all the awesome elements of these photos, mostly the fact that YOU took them for me and, HOLY SMOKES!! My goodness you were made to be a photographer and I LOVE watching you get better and better each time. Tank you times a million, best!

    Tears are coming to my eyes as I type this. Tears of so much joy. I agree with you Carolyn, words seem so inadequate for the happiness and all of the remarkable ways God has been a part of this relationship. It is so evident. The wonderful thing is that sometimes when words aren’t enough, pictures sweep in and do the whole thing a lot of justice. I don’t think you could have captured them in a more beautiful way, my friend. You are such a talent. Congratulations, Meredith and Jim, I could not be happier for you and am so thankful to call you friends.

    Carolyn… wow. Until now I don’t think I really understood how in love my daughter was with this man. A reality check for me, amazing job on capturing the reason people choose a partner to do the dance. New respect for you, what a pro.

    Oh My! Carolyn you nailed it with these photos of Meredith and Jim. If you didn’t know them and their love for one another it is so very evident in these pictures. Beautiful people, lovely setting and great photographer! Your work is amazing.
