Every so often, a couple comes along that finds their way to the inner most circle of my heart. I grow very fond of all my couples, and many of them remain friends for years. However, this couple is a little different. I first met Hannah soon after moving here to Raleigh. The transition for our family was very hard… and the one who felt it most was our little Elliana. She was a year and half when we moved here, and didn’t miss any of the hard moments that accompanied our move. I am one who likes consistancy, and this move rocked my world in every way. Hannah was a steady smile, twirling buddy, and kept pace with the little ball of energy we call Elliana! In those months, Hannah was my rock… although I’ve never told her, she brought more comfort to me than she will ever know. I never worried about my baby when Miss Hannah was here! As the months rolled by, happiness and joy once again found its way back in to our home and Hannah remained very much at the center of all activities in this house. I LOVE every chance I have to visit and giggle with her. She loves Jesus, life, children, movies, all things Anthropologie, and of course she loves her amazing man Clint!
The first time I met Clint was again revolving around my daughter, he came to help Hannah babysit. His heart is obviously Hannah’s, I was instantly captivated by how attentive and affectionate he is to Hannah, and how much he makes her heart smile! You know what I mean… when someone is truly happy and has found their forever person, you can literally see their heart radiating through their joyful smiles! 🙂 That is Hannah to a “T” when she is around Clint! I am also amazed at his patience level while Hannah and I visit for hour after hour, and how amazingly sweet he is to my girls! He never hessitates when asked to hold my newborn or even play princess (he of course is the prince) with my now 5 year old. Hannah and Clint quickly became a package deal when taking care of my girls.
Soon after Clint FINALLY proposed, they both came over and Hannah was absolutely glowing. Their engagement story is over the top romantic, thoughtful…. and downright perfect! 🙂 It has been so fun to watch these two getting ready for their big day! I feel so honored to be able to photograph their engagement and in a few short months, their wedding! These two are a blessing to so many… I cannot wait to celebrate these two becoming one! Hannah and Clint, you have hearts of gold, thank you so much for all you’ve given me and my family! I love you both!
