Ronit contacted me in early November to inquire about her December 8th wedding date, and I was so happy to have the date open! With time so short, I was THRILLED when they were willing to work with my schedule and drive to Jackson from Meridian for their engagement session! Engagement sessions are so important to build a relationship with my couples before their wedding day. So important in fact, that I include an engagement session as a free gift to all my MLPhoto Brides!
Ronit and Dan trusted me to pick locations. We planned to start at the Mississippi State Capitol, but I also knew they wanted a second location to add variety to their gallery. I left my house an hour early to do a bit of location scouting in downtown Jackson. As I was driving to the Mississippi Museum of Art, I drove by this abandoned, overgrown lot next to the rail road tracks and knew it would be stunning at sunset! I was so thankful when Ronit and Dan trusted me and we were able to capture these stunning images! I just love the juxtaposition of her red dress, his suit, and this field. It looks as if they are all alone in the middle of nowhere, when in fact they are in the middle of downtown Jackson!
Watching Ronit and Dan together, you can see their love for one another. As I have edited these stunning images, I have prayed for this beautiful couple. The verse that continues to come to mind is from Song of Solomon 3:4 “I have found the one whom my soul loves.” The Lord has brought these two together for a bigger purpose. As Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 says,
“Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.”
