Engagement Session

Ashley Newman Photography {Tuscaloosa, AL}

I had the honor of working with Jesse and Emelia. From the moment they got out of their car, I could feel their excitement and passion buzzing in the air. Jesse simply adores Emelia, and when you have a man who loves his girl the way Jesse does, the connection can be felt by everyone in their presence. Its intense. Lake Nicol didn't disappoint either...between the fire that autumn brought, Jesse strumming his guitar for his beloved, and Emelia blushing all the way through the session, I simply couldn't contain my own excitement for the journey ahead of them. 
That is a passion that every marriage should begin with. 

I leave their gallery with this simple prayer of blessing over their relationship: 
Now you will feel no rain, For each of you will be shelter to the other.
Now you will feel no cold, For each of you will be warmth to the other.
Now there is no more loneliness, For each of you will be companion to the other.
Now you are two bodies, But there is one life before you.
Go now to your dwelling place, To enter into the days of your togetherness.
And may your days be good and long upon the earth.
