Jayce and Nicole

Filed under: engagement — Char @ 4:37 am

It is the way he looks at her, like he is seeing her for the first time. It is the way she smiles when he holds her tight, like she is safest in his arms. Nicole looks at the world with a  brilliant smile and a lightheartedness. Jayce nods, encourages, and grins at her. She says, “I love the way he is a mm…mmmm football player; sharp as a razor and all wrapped up in the most caring, charitable soul I have ever seen.”

They love just being. Curling up on the couch or on a picnic blanket next to each other. Dreaming about the future. Watching movies or football. Rambling conversations. Just being.

The past six months included “big” stuff…getting engaged, graduating from college, buying a home, getting new full time jobs, and planning a wedding and honeymoon. It is the little things that they are looking forward to now. Like going no farther than Home Depot on a weekend and sharing a living room. Nicole says she is looking forward to trying to prepare a hot dinner on time and Jayce is excited to get out his tool belt and fix up the house.

The wedding is coming up in a few short weeks. I am so looking forward to it…certain it will be gorgeous. See their slide show here.

Meet Jayce and Nicole.




Nicole had several locations picked out in her home town…loved this! This gorgeous church was superb for photos.






The next stop was a pretty horse farm. A pond with a canoe created an excellent prop.






  1. I LOVE THAT BUILDING! It looks sooo amazing! Like 19th centry Pride and Prejudice!! LOVE IT!

  8. Great pictures! My favorites were the ones by the church and the canoe ones. Something about both water and great architecture that makes great photos timeless.
