"For I know the plans I have for you" - Jeremiah 29:11. God works in beautiful and mysterious ways of bringing two people together. Sometimes our lives are changed in ways to relocate us to the place we're ment to be. Drew & Julia met in the Philippines on a missionary trip. Their mutual passion to serve others and hunger to share the gospel, drew their hearts close to one another. Their first date was in Manila, Philippines on April 20, 2016. Dinner, a walk 'searching' for a local mini golf course, coffee and simply getting to know one another, made that one special evening that much more memorable. Friendship grew into like, and like grew into love. On June 10, 2017, Drew and Julia will be getting married in the beautiful PNW, and I am so blessed to be capturing their love story!
Planning this engagement session, Julia mentioned a few times how much she'd love for her engagement photos to show the beautiful PNW. Something she can have and cherish forever. We had a few locations in mind, after going back and forth we decided on 'Woodstock Farm' in Bellingham. I'm so happy we went with this location! If you haven't yet been here, check it out. What a beautiful park with gorgeous scenery of the mountains and the water - make the perfect backdrop! Planning sessions in the PNW is so tricky. We hoped for some sunshine and clear skies, but God had something else in mind. It was a cold, windy and rainy. But, Drew and Julia were such troopers! The weather didn't stop them from smiling and enjoying their session. I don't know many people who are as brave as they are!
Thank you Drew and Julia for trusting me in capturing this special time in your lives! You both are clearly made for one another, and it makes me so happy how God brought you both together! Our God is so good! Enjoy this time and I'm so excited for your wedding this summer! Blessings!
