Oh, these two. I love when couples let their their engagement session be a time to just enjoy being together. It’s the one part of wedding planning that is simply about the relationship between two people in love. Well, maybe it was because they live oceans apart and were finally together again but let me tell you, the early morning hours of their sunrise session didn’t hinder the happiness between these two lovebirds. It was so easy to capture them ‘being them’ because their love for one another was so easy. We laughed a LOT during this sunrise session. Amie and Jack have so much fun together and don’t take things too seriously. They grew up in the same ‘city’ but given the size of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex they didn’t have any interaction until they both decided to go to the Air Force Academy in Colorado. He interviewed her for a job during their time at the Academy and thought she was really cute. So, he eventually took her on a date. They both laughed about that date when telling me about it as it didn’t really go anywhere. It just wasn’t the right time. Since they were just friends at that point, they thought they’d go their separate ways after graduation. When they were stationed at the same base though, their friendship grew and so did their interest in one another. Their paths soon took them overseas on an assignment and they fell in love. She was then moved to Germany and he back to the States but by that point, distance was just a circumstance. So, when she flew in to spend a vacation with his family in Colorado, he asked her to be his bride.
I loved watching these two and how they interact. They make each other laugh and it’s easy to see how being together makes them able to fully be themselves. I actually have known Jack for a few years and we even met at the Air Force Academy through an event I was putting on through Kanakuk Kamps. I’m sure at that point he had already met Amie but he had no idea that she would become his wife. How special that I now get to cross paths with him again and capture the love he has for the his future bride. One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to reconnect with people through the art of photography and capturing life’s greatest moments. I can’t wait for their June wedding and to see how their story continues to unfold.
Enjoy some of my favs from their sunrise engagement session!
