Wow- this photo session was done on one toasty day! We were all sweating as we went from location to location at the beautiful Arboretum out in Boyce, Va area. But this couple kept their cool the whole time.
But more than just keeping their cool, this couple shared the coolness. Let me just say, this couple may be young, but they have a strong grasp of the fact that marriage…and life…run more smoothly when the Author of Life is sought after and followed. They are willing to listen to Him, to allow the truth to sink in and cause a change in their hearts and ultimately in their actions. My husband and I were so encouraged to be able to get to know them and be impacted by their willingness to draw near to God as a young, newlywed couple.
In fact, looking back on the time we spent with them, I’m reminded that God is continually transforming us into the image of His Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ. He does this through his Word, through prayer, and yes, through the challenges and blessings of marriage.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
Devin and Adriana, it was so much fun for my husband and me to photograph and hang out with you! Thank you for being an encouragement to us! And definitely, continue to follow the Lord as you navigate the newness of marriage.
