PORTRAITS // The Yards Park, Washington, DC: Ryan + Jenny

I'm so excited to start this week off with one of the most amazing couples we know. Not only are they gorgeous, but these honeymoon-for-life-lovebirds are also parents to 4 beautiful kids, and are full time staff for Cru at Maryland University. I don't know where the hashtag: #relationshipgoals came from, but Ryan & Jenny are near the top of our list. These two saw us through our college dating years, mentored and prayed us through pre-marriage counseling & have supported our marriage with advice, encouragement & even more prayer. We are inspired by them so much, we may or may not have borrowed their wedding date for ourselves (by accident). 

What inspires us the most is their love for God, which inspires their love for people. It's evident in how they beam with pride & joy when talking about their kids or each other, or in their ability to make you feel loved & cared for no matter the length of conversation you have with them. You can see it on instagram when they pursue each one of their kids individually & still balance activities for their entire family 6. And above everything else, you can see it in their both their words & actions. 

Ryan & Jenny we are so grateful for your marriage, your servant hearts, & your family. You both encourage us by simply being who you are & by sharing your lives with us. We pray that our marriage will impact others the way your marriage has influenced ours for the better. And thank you times a million for allowing us to capture your beautiful love on camera.
