• Justin + Jess | Engaged

When Michael found out he was going to be a part of this ministry, we took a road trip to Boiling Springs, NC to check out where he’d be spending a year of his life!  There is close to nothing in Boiling Springs.  The one stop light town is cute and quaint but we didn’t feel truly welcomed until we walked into Crossroads office and met Justin.  Justin was literally the first person we were introduced to when Michael started this new part of his life and he couldn’t have been more genuine and accommodating.

I met Jess that same weekend.  I loved her the moment I met her.  Justin and Jess are two incredible people with incredible hearts for the Lord and it’s exciting to see them begin their life together.  As you look through the MANY MANY pictures from their session you will notice a common theme.  The majority of their pics are of them laughing hysterically.  They make each other smile in such an authentic way and their joy is contagious.  Thanks for letting me be a part of this exciting time in your life! Congratulations!! You guys are beautiful!!
