Megan + Bradley’s sunset engagement session in Starkville, MS was such a dream! Summer arrived with a vengeance last Friday, but I am so happy they were willing to brave the heat and humidity so we could capture these amazing images!
What began as a simple co-worker relationship developed into love. This past March Bradley took Megan to Nashville and proposed to her on the bridge crossing the Cumberland River. It was the day before her birthday. Can you imagine a better birthday gift?
I am so honored that Megan + Bradley have chosen to become a Meridith Lee Couple! I am looking forward to capturing their wedding day in March 2020 at The Cotton Market Venue!
Megan + Bradley, I have prayed for you as I edited your beautiful images. The scripture that the Lord repeatedly brought to my mind is 1 Corinthians 13:4-13 from The Passion Translation which says:
Love is large and incredibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one’s achievements nor inflate its own importance. Love does not traffic in shame and disrespect, nor selfishly seek its own honor. Love is not easily irritated or quick to take offense.Love joyfully celebrates honesty and finds no delight in what is wrong.Love is a safe place of shelter, for it never stops believing the best for others. Love never takes failure as defeat, for it never gives up.
Love never stops loving. It extends beyond the gift of prophecy, which eventually fades away. It is more enduring than tongues, which will one day fall silent. Love remains long after words of knowledge are forgotten.Our present knowledge and our prophecies are but partial, but when love’s perfection arrives, the partial will fade away.When I was a child, I spoke about childish matters, for I saw things like a child and reasoned like a child. But the day came when I matured, and I set aside my childish ways.
For now we see but a faint reflection of riddles and mysteries as though reflected in a mirror, but one day we will see face-to-face. My understanding is incomplete now, but one day I will understand everything, just as everything about me has been fully understood. Until then, there are three things that remain: faith, hope, and love—yet love surpasses them all. So above all else, let love be the beautiful prize for which you run.
