As promised, here are some of the pictures of Jocelyn and Alec that I had the opportunity to take this past October. It was really fun seeing their personalities, and getting see how they interact together as a couple. We have known Alec for years, as a friend and fellow classmate, however getting to see him as a more mature, returned missionary, and companion to our Jocelyn was entirely different.

|Jocelyn couldn't stop laughing.|
|Alec was really patient with my amateur photography abilities, of course Jocelyn was already familiar with my "one more" meant ten philosophy.|
|This one is my favorite.|
“If you will make your first concern the comfort, the well-being, and the happiness of your companion, sublimating any personal concern to that loftier goal, you will be happy, and your marriage will go on through eternity”
I love the soft focus of this one below. The lighting made for a beautiful backdrop as well.
Choose a companion of your own faith. You are much more likely to be happy. Choose a companion you can always honor, you can always respect, one who will complement you in your own life, one to whom you can give your entire heart, your entire love, your entire allegiance, your entire loyalty. [Hinckley, "Life's Obligations, 2]
Some flowers suggested my Grandma Linda made this picture extra sweet!
"Success in marriage depends not so much on finding the right person
as it does on being the right person."

The pictures in the Malt Shoppe / Diner were really fun, but I didn't get the lighting right, so many of them were unusable.
“If a husband would think less of himself and more of his wife, we’d have happier homes throughout the Church and throughout the world.” President Hinckley
I strongly believe the reverse is true as well. If both the husband and the wife spend their time concerning themselves with how to help, love and care for the other, then not only are we taking care of someone--and thus learning to love them more-- but also we also are being cared for as well.
|So nice of them to allow me one more picture to show that I was there!|

|There were several good shots with the BYU blanket.|
- “One of the most satisfying rewards of a good marriage is the sense of being the most important person in the world to one other person.”
|The two spent the day goofing around between the "official shots".|
