The first time I met Wendy and Jim Hawkins was on their wedding day, December 21, 2011. The happy couple traveled from their home in the United Kingdom to Hot Springs, Arkansas to visit Jim's sister...and to get married. Jim reached out to me via e-mail a few months before their wedding and hired me to photograph their wedding day at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn. For Wendy & Jim both, it was their first marriage. And they met on Match.com! How fabulous is that!!!!
I can say with without hesitation that Wendy and Jim are one of the most delightful couples I have ever met. Their wedding day was small, quaint and absolutely perfect. We only spent a few hours together, but afterwards, I left like I had made two wonderful friends.
Below are a few of my favorites from their wedding day from 12.21.11, but you can see their full gallery on my Facebook page.
Three years later, I met up with Wendy & Jim once again.
Jim reached out to me in late October of 2014 and asked me if I would be available to photograph them once again at Lookout Point. They were traveling in from the UK to spend a few weeks (and Christmas) with his sister, his nieces and nephews and their families.
We spent their third wedding anniversary, December 21, 2014 at Lookout Point once again for a few fun and fresh, updated couples portraits. And just like I remembered, they were just as delightful.
