Tom and Amanda: engagement :D :D {truman state university, kirksville, mo engagement photographer}


Last December, I took my best friend +Allix's engagement photos. Last week, I took my best friend +Amanda's engagement photos. So incredibly special :).

If you've followed me for a while, you've seen and heard me talk about Amanda from time to time. We've known each other our whole lives, but the Lord really knit our hearts together when He saved her soul at the age of 15 :). She is my faraway best friend (about 11 hours separate us. Mreh [that's my sound of displeasure. lol] ). I very much wish we lived closer, but I'm forever grateful for our long phone conversations and our random pins we send to each other. Hehe :D. She is my sister in so many ways and I rejoice abundantly for what God has done in her and dear +Tom's lives :'D.

So, without further ado, I present to you...

Tom and Amanda.

They are awkward, they are funny, they are smart, and just plain great :D.

We thought we were done, but as we walked back to the cars, they whipped out their sunglasses and we had to take some pictures 'cause, in Amanda's words "It's kinda our trademark." Hehe :D
