Katie & Jon: Engagement in Jacksonville

Posted by Studio222 Photography | 2:22 AM | | 12 comments » | Share on Facebook

I was watching the news this morning because I wanted to get caught up on some world events and a woman was being interviewed about how in today's world, and especially with the younger generation of twenty-somethings (represent!) the world is bigger and smaller than it has ever been before. What she meant was that people, young people especially, are viewing themselves more as citizens of the world than of their particular nation. That we are all very concerned with the well being of our fellow world citizens and feel a strong sense of justice for all of mankind. I love it. I have been to a few other countries and I always come back feeling like I've grown as a person just for having been there and learning more about the people I meet and places I visit.

It all just reminds me how small the world is. We are really all just people. We are not Americans, Europeans, Iranians, Floridans, or even Orlando people. We are all people, all sharing this beautiful world and sharing responsibility. We all wake up in the morning and go to sleep at night. The immense worth of each individual adds up to a planet rich in stories and love and although we are separated by many factors, in more ways that one we are all interconnected. I always appreciate the way those connections work. One of my favorite things about my job is that I get to meet people I would have never gotten to meet otherwise. Photography brings people into my life that are amazing, with beautiful stories and beautiful quirks. I love feeling my world expand with each interaction. Meeting Katie and Jon was one of those connections. They are a fantastically cute duo and we are so excited to share these images of them as we count down to their wedding this August.

Oh sweet symmetry!

I haven't done puddle shots in over a year but this one was too good to pass up...

Hello gorgeous eyes!

    I was going to say the 4th was my favorite shot, then I changed to the 8th... and 10th...so in the end, I just adore the entire set. What a fantastic couple!
