UGH. Where to even start with these two. Cassie and Jonathan are the most amazing people. I met Cassie when she reached out to me to capture their homecoming at the Raleigh airport -- commemorating Jonathan's return from Deployment. Since our very first conversation we became fast friends. She has the sweetest soul, the purest heart, and truly wants to love and help people with her life. Fast forward a few months and here they are engaged and about to start a life together. I write things on my website about how I live to capture the real and authentic moments, to make photographs that capture the memories that make our lives special, etc. etc. I think most photographers have that written somewhere. That being said, I don't just say it. I try to live it. This girl is the perfect example. People like Cassie are what make my photography journey so full. I have gotten, in the last four months or so, to capture the most important moments in this couple's life thus far together.
I have made the most amazing friend in Cassie -- she is truly a gem. And although I officially met Jonathan for the first time as I drug him all up and down Duke's campus in the freezing cold for their engagement session, he is one lucky and deserving guy. The way he tenderly held Cassie and the way he was such a trooper putting up with my prompts and the outfit changes was heroic. At the end of the day I think I may have had more fun behind the lens than they did in front of it.
I am so happy for them to start their journey together and I hope and pray for all the best in the years to come.
