I’ve been struggling trying to figure out how to start this post. I mean really, where do I begin?
My journey with Loren started several years ago. She was single, raising her sweet little boy and wanted a session with just the two of them. It wasn’t much later that she met James. They had been dating for a while when he was deployed and I again got to work with her when she asked for a session before his deployment so they all could have pictures to help comfort them during their seperation. When I met James, I saw a light in Loren’s eyes. This season was going to be hard for them, but it was also going to test the strength of relationship. That’s a lot of pressure… but I didn’t see an ounce of that worry in her eyes. Just the fear that comes in general with deployment and the dread of knowing of much she would miss him. I watched a man love a child like it was his own. I watched a little boy look at a man, semi-new to his life, with admiration and love. It was super emotional. I am so happy James made it home safely and they picked up right where they left off! Of course that meant an ENGAGMENT!!! When Loren told me the news I was over the moon. It was right in every way and there is no one more deserving of happiness!
From the engagments to the bridals to the wedding day – it was time spent not only with a client but a dear, dear friend. Everyone that meets Loren falls in love with her and James won the worlds biggest lottery by marrying her! I am sure James’s family feels the same way about Loren… I don’t know him as well as I do her, but I know any man she chooses to love must be one full of integretiy, support, loyalty, and love.
Thank you Loren for letting me witness this season in your life! I am so glad to have you in my own life and I can’t wait to see what’s next for the two of you!
