Colin & Andrea | Engagement | Highbanks Metro Park

June 10, 2016  •  2 Comments

When I met Colin and Andrea for their engagement session, I was reminded of why I'm so excited to be photographing their wedding in a few weeks.  What is immediately obvious when you spend any amount of time with them, is how much they simply enjoy each other.  They are so very happy just being together, and the laughter they share is contagious.  Here's a little peek into some of my favorites from their engagement!

Colin graduated last month.  Throughout his last year of college, he'd been diligently hunting for a job, but somehow every opportunity he came across ended up falling through - until last month.  He was offered a job in...(wait for it)...Wisconsin.
Now that may seem like no big deal, but Colin and Andrea's lives are rooted deeply in central Ohio.  Both of their families are here, so the idea of moving, while exciting, also pulls on their heart strings. Sometimes God's timing is astonishingly short notice.  They felt confident that this opportunity was from Him, so their last month has been a crazy whirlwind of graduation, packing up their lives, moving Colin to Wisconsin, AND planning the remaining details of their wedding day while Andrea is in Ohio and Colin is in Wisconsin.  As I was listening to their story throughout their engagement session, I was struck by how at peace they seemed through all of the change they've been experiencing.  That's the beauty of walking with God.  You get to have peace in the middle of crazy circumstances.  They do, and it's a beautiful thing to witness.
Colin and Andrea are major fans of sunsets.  It's been their thing for ages now.  Colin even proposed on a lake at sunset.  Although the clouds were greedy that evening and hid the sunset, they got engaged anyway, because circumstances don't have to be perfect for a moment to be everything you dreamed of.  The clouds were more cooperative the night of their engagement session, and these are some of my absolute favorites from their shoot.

Congratulations, Colin & Andrea!  So excited for your big day!

Hey there!  I'm Deborah Grace, and this little space you've stumbled into is a peek into my world, and into the world of those who've allowed me into their stories .  I'm a photographer, an artist, a storyteller, and a dreamer.  I adore the way photography has afforded me the opportunity to glimpse into people's stories.  People are beautiful, imperfect, messy and wonderful.  I think most times we just need to know that we're doing okay at this life thing.  That's why I take photos.  I think people often miss the beauty of their own stories because they're in the middle of them.  I think my lens is basically just a gift God put in my hands to help others see how wonderful they really are, and that their stories matter.  I always feel like the lucky one because I am.  Getting to hear your messy, imperfect, hilarious, one-of-a-kind adventure-of-a-story never fails to convince me that in spite of everything, God is making something really beautiful out of all of us.  And that inspires my socks off every time.   So yes.  I'm the lucky one who gets an in to the beautiful stories that people are.  I love new friends so drop me a line if you'd like to connect.  -xoxo
