Another girl I absolutely love and hold near and dear. It's the year for all my pretty nieces getting married and I'm always so happy when they want me to photograph them.
Weston was in a bad accident that almost took his life. He was in a coma for 10 days, lost eyesight in one eye, the sense of smell, and walked away learning never to take life for granted. He found Karissa when they were both eating lunch at the same college. Karissa was there with her mom enjoying lunch and along came Weston asking if he could sit down and eat lunch with them. It surprised them both and she and her mom later laughed about the cute kid who came to eat lunch with them and talked and talked. They enjoyed the conversation enough for him to get her number. The thing Karissa didn't know at that time is that Weston had been praying that God would send him a good friend. He was in need of someone to spend time with and enjoy good conversations with. They hit it off from there, and things moved at a perfect pace for them. They love to laugh and tease. Karissa is about the funniest girl you will meet, she is very enjoyable to be around and makes you laugh easy. The whole shoot they were teasing each other and busting up laughing. I love them both so much!
Weston's dad passed away and wasn't able to be there through this all, which being someone who has lost a dad and missed all the moments he couldn't be there, I understood how he was feeling. He wore his dads watch, and talked fondly of him. Karissa just wraps her arms around him and comforts him, they both are so perfect together to support and love one another.
