When we were planning Alisa & Pat’s engagement session, we had to pray for perfect weather. Not only were they coming in from out-of-town and out-of-country (Pat is living in Connecticut and Alisa is from Australia!), but we had a tight window of time that we could complete their session before they had to hit […]
