Kala and Billy | Lasting Love Session | Northwest Arkansas Photographer

 

Kala and Billy are two of my favorite humans. They've got great kids, they love Jesus, and they're really fun. We spent the whole session listening to The Greatest Showman soundtrack and spinning around (well, they did the spinning). 

Kala and Billy just celebrated their 10 year anniversary at the beginning of the month. When you spend time with them, you can tell they're such a great match, but nobody felt that way when they decided to get married. Even while walking her down the aisle, Kala's dad said to her, "You don't have to do this." Kala was also a young and a little bit scared. But she said it's the best decision she's ever made. 

I've spent a lot more time with Kala since I used to be on a worship team with her when I was in college, and all I really knew about Billy was that he was quiet. I was so surprised because that's not the case at all! Billy is so fun and has a dry sense of humor. He had me laughing the whole session. 

I really love the dynamic of Kala and Billy's relationship because while Kala talks a lot and is definitely a Type A (just like me), Billy is more relaxed and is a great listener. They're seriously a match made in Heaven.

My favorite part of the session was when I asked her what her favorite thing is about Billy. She said that she loves how loyal he is. "I always know he's going to be there." If you ask me, that's the greatest thing you can ask for in a relationship.

What a gift it is for me to witness couples who put each other first even decades after their vows. I hope I never stop photographing this. 

I'll sum it up with the words a college-aged bystander said to her friend: "Wow, I can't wait for a love like that."
