What a great summer it’s been! As I wind up my summer activities, I am happy to share with you Emily and Jacob’s engagement session! You’ve already met Emily and Jacob, as Jacob commissioned me to photograph his proposal to Emily. But, of course you remember that. But, let’s get to know these two a little bit more. I love their story. These two love birds began dating during their senior year of high school. Next spring, they will both graduate from college. Emily studies architecture at Ball State University. Jacob studies natural resource management at Ohio State University. Emily’s dream is to bring historic life back to classic homes but to also make them practical for modern-day living. Jacob loves trees. And plants. And pretty much wants to do anything he can to preserve them. (Well, he cuts them down, sometimes, but that’s a different story…)
Side Story: During our engagement session, Jacob and Emily wanted to go into the woods. When I asked about poison ivy, he said it was everywhere. I pretty much get poison ivy by looking at it, but Jacob was a true hero; he pointed out all of the death weed as we walked and gave me a path to follow so as not to brush up against the skin murderers. His endeavors were a success, as I didn’t get a lick of the rash. Thanks, Jacob!
My husband coaches Jacob and other leaders of Oasis Christian Community on OSU’s campus. So, we met Emily through Jacob. Here’s the best part: Emily brought Jacob to Christ while they were on Facetime. Seriously. I love this story because it means I get to tell about salvation! We started our engagement session at Thaddeus Kosciuzko Park in Dublin, Ohio. Their alma mater is just next door–Dublin Scioto High School. Then, we had a quick outfit change and relocated to Glacier Ridge Metro Park in Plain City, Ohio. These two are crazy about each other. And I’m crazy about them. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding next July! Emily and Jacob, enjoy this year of engagement; use it to learn about each other and prepare for an awesome foundation in marriage.
Love and prayers,
