Rob & Danielle: City Love

Last weekend, our incredible friends Rob and Danielle (also known as Del) came to Charlotte to visit Tom and me.  It was, hands down, the best weekend we’ve had in Charlotte thus far. It wasn’t just because we jam-packed the weekend with amazing meals, laughter, and had a ridiculously fun time (which we did), but more so it was because for the first weekend in our new city, we were surrounded with what we’ve miss most since moving from Florida: family. Which is what we consider the Wests to be.  They are the type of friends that you don’t care if they stop by your home when it’s far from tidy (which is often how you’ll find ours) and our friendship is one of support, grace, and encouragement.  They have gone with us through our deepest struggles – we’ve cried together, prayed together, and worshipped together – and Tom and I couldn’t be more grateful for them.

It was around our dinner table the evening they flew in, just before we were about to pray and devour our homemade eggplant parmesan, that our little apartment in Charlotte finally felt like home.  We selfishly want them to move to North Carolina but constantly remind ourselves to pray for God’s plans for their lives and not our own (although that doesn’t stop us from hoping the two will coincide). :)

Danielle and I both got our first DSLR cameras around the same time and have been on this photography adventure every step of the way.  It’s been awesome learning together and laughing about how clueless we were when we first started using our cameras. “What’s I-S-O?”  Some of you may remember these two love birds from last year’s fall, post-wedding session (if not, check out some lovely leaves and light here).  We naturally had to make sure we captured some love in the city. Enjoy!
