Kelsey & Cameron
Flowood, Mississippi Engagement Session
Kelsey and Cameron officially met about 11 years ago when they were just 6th graders at camp. Because they went to different schools, their paths did not cross again for two more years. While rehearsing for their church’s Christmas program, they were placed next to each other in the line up. Kelsey says that her “sassy 8th grade self went right up and tapped him on the shoulder.” They were instantly best friends.
Throughout middle school and high school, Kelsey and Cameron remained best friends. They dated other people, ran in different circles at times, but they always had each other’s back. They also came to each other with the big moments in their lives, both happy and heartbreaking. Kelsey says that it’s hard to explain, but they always knew they were supposed to be there for one another…strictly a God thing, with Him slowly unraveling their relationship layer by layer.
When they both began to crush on each other their junior year of high school, both Kelsey and Cameron were afraid to admit their crushes, afraid their feelings may ruin their friendship. Once they graduated high school, they went their separate ways for a few years – Kelsey went to Mississippi State and Cameron went to Mississippi College. Eventually, they would find their way back to one another after losing touch over the years. When Cameron went to a student government convention with other colleges in the area, he found himself sitting at a table with some students from Mississippi State. They started to discuss mutual friends, and Kelsey’s name came up. This prompted Cameron to call her and reconnect. Kelsey was already planning to come home that weekend, so Cameron asked if she wanted to “hang out” while she was in town. Little did she know, he intended to take her on a date. The rest, as they say, is history.
Kelsey had come through a season of praying for her future husband and feeling like God had been teaching her what things in a spouse would “fit” her and would fit the things that God had called her to. The poem “Fit” was actually not written to Cameron specifically but more as a prayer/letter to her future husband, whoever he was. Kelsey said she actually wrote the poem in July, and she and Cameron reconnected in October, just 3 months later. Coincidence, or an answer to prayers? 🙂
See Kelsey’s touching poem below, and check out the couple’s engagement photos as well. I’m so blessed to be able to document such lovely couples and their love for one another. Stay tuned for wedding photos… XOXO
Some things are undeniable matches
Separation cannot exist
They click, snap, and lock,
Once bound will not untwist.
Their partner picks no other,
It simply cannot be.
They were made to coincide,
No other bolt will hold this key.
Their purpose is in codependence.
Without one, the other is obsolete.
For they were molded, grafted, designed,
And paired to make the other complete.
Is it possible for two creatures,
Whose roads have never intertwined,
To match with such precision
That words cannot define?
If this goal can be achieved
I want to be that one for you.
That fills the other half,
The latch, the pin, the glue.
I want no distinction
From where you end and I begin.
I desire to be yours fully,
Your partner to the end.
I hope to be all you need
Now and then as well,
In five, ten, and fifty years,
Only time will tell.
I ask the One who knows your heart,
better than I ever can,
To mold me in exactness
To match his Sovereign plan.
I pray that He will teach me,
So that I can be all you’ll ever need.
My desire is to fit you,
Perfect and unbreaking indeed.
