Nathan + Jillian . Tallahassee Engagement Photographer

FILED IN: Engagements, People

Lately it seems like I am a broken record, but believe me when I say this post is special.

Nathan and I have known each other our entire lives. In elementary school, we spent years having class parties celebrating our shared birthday and eating his mom’s famous “volcano cake” (made with tomatoes!) Then, in college, we made a point to sign up for at least one class together every semester. Nathan is one of those friends, who no matter how long it’s been since we’ve seen each other, we pick up right where we left off. I met Jillian a few years ago, when she moved to Citrus County from Michigan for an internship after college. But unlike most of the twenty something’s who move there, she loved it! And decided to stay, even after her internship ended. We became friends through our life group, and it has been a joy to get to know her over the past couple of years. She has a true servant heart and a visible love for the Lord that always seems to inspire and awaken my waning spirit.

I could go on and on about these two. I’m just so thrilled that they found each other. And even more thrilled that they asked ME to be their photographer. Life is good, y’all.

Here’s what I saw on a sunny evening in Tallahassee:
