Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: Amy & Howard are engaged!
BlogMenu

Mar 8, 2008

Amy & Howard are engaged!

Some of you might remember this touching story from back in my video days. If you are newer to my blog, grab some tissues and take a moment to view the video on my old blog.

I was thrilled to get an email a few months ago from the mom, Amy, announcing that she had met Howard and then asking me to now be her photographer at her upcoming wedding! Having known this family since the days of their sad loss, it was so awesome to hear the good news and see how God fulfilled His love in the blessing of a new love for Amy and a new father for her sweet little girls, Gabby and Gentry.

I'm also excited to see at the wedding my former bride, Angie, Amy's sister, who now has a sweet little 1-year-old baby! I can't believe it! Some days it still feels like yesterday that I filmed Angie and Adam's wedding! Amy and Howard's wedding will be a beautiful reunion with everyone!

Here are some of my favorite photos and the slideshow from Amy and Howard's engagement session! They love to collect seaglass out at Hannah Park, so we had a fun day at the beach getting our toes sandy and playing in the water for the photos!

Scarlett,
I don't know if I cried more watching the video on your old blog, or of the slideshow of Amy & Howard's engagement session. It's so obvious the love this new family has for one another, and a beautiful sentiment of how life -- somehow -- always goes on.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Scarlett,
These photos are beautiful. I love all the bright colors! And you're right, I think I was crying in the first scene of the video. Such a gift you gave them all!

Be still my heart! True love is alive and well. God is so good. His amazing grace never ceases to amaze me. It makes me so happy to see good things happen to good people. What a gift for all of them

Scarlett,

When I met you almost 2 years ago at my little sister's wedding my life had been turned upside down by the loss of my husband and father and years of exhaustion from living with the early stages of autism. Now we meet again and, this time, my life has been turned right side up with the goodness of God's beauty and grace. I have learned that when pain carves a deep place in your heart, God's love can run deeper. I marvel everyday at how Howard is the puzzle piece that fits my past with my future. God's person and timing for me were greater than I could have ever imagined. The neat thing is that Howard feels completely the same. We are each other's answered prayers.
I know we have a story of HOPE to share and I am so thankful you have the gift to capture it. You are such a joy to work with. Amy

These pictures are so amazing! I am so grateful my family met you a few years ago at my wedding. You have captured so well the emotional moments in our lives. Through all our loss and sadness, we are so happy for Amy and the girls to have Howard. They make such a beautiful family!! We look forward to seeing you at the wedding.

Scarlett-Lillian!!!! Your photos are awesome, but my goodness, that video...I'm balling right now. I don't know if I felt the emotion because I have a one year old who is starting to notice Daddy more or what. If all your videos are half that good....WOW!!!

Reading this post, seeing these fabulous pictures, and watching the precious video, further solidify the fact that there is no other wedding photographer for us but you! Your work is amazing, but your heart is even more beautiful. Joe & I are so excited to have you capture all the moments of our special day.

Colby- Amy said she got her shirt in Indiana somewhere and her necklace was actually a belt she tied around her neck and used as a necklace. It was made by a custom jewelry maker friend. Sorry that I can't pin point you to a specific store! I actually just bought a similiar bright yellow shirt at bebe's. You might want to check there!
