The Unexpected Couple

I met Travis my freshman year of college. He was vice president of the fraternity I pledged for. To be frank, he scared me a little. I was the good, little pentecostal kid, and he had long hair, gauges in his ears, and more tattoos than I could count. When I really got to know Travis, I realized there was a lot more under all of that. Nichole came to Carey my sophomore year as the good girl desiring to live life to the fullest, (and become my children's future dentist) and I never in a million years thought she and Travis would be friends, much less more. I had a great friendship with both of them throughout my time at Carey, and was more than a little shocked when Facebook announced they were "in a relationship". I watched their relationship blossom over time, until it came to the point that I couldn't imagine them not ever being together. I was ecstatic when Nichole messaged me over Christmas telling me they were engaged! It was shortly after that she called asking me to shoot their engagement photos. Travis is not too keen on photos, but agreed to do them if I would be the photographer. I couldn't say no, even if I had wanted to. We met Saturday in downtown Hattiesburg for an afternoon of catching up with each other, and them acting up for the camera. We had a wonderful time, and I am super pleased with the results. I love them immensely, and can hardly wait to see them say "I do" this coming June. Best wishes guys! I love you both!
