[jake + katie ] engaged
I had so much fun taking these two love birds engagement photos. We went to the canal downtown Indy and boy was it the perfect day. Even though we were not the only ones having fun I do believe we were having the most fun ;).
Here is Part 1 of their story(from Katie's view), more to come with the wedding blog:
We met in February 2013 through online dating. That's right. You've seen the commercials - well, it's true. We met on Christian Mingle. Jacob was in his senior year at Ball State University and his mom insisted he sign up for Christian Mingle and go on at least 2 dates and she would pay.
I (Katie) had been out of school for a year and a half, working and living on my own, and short of the miracle, had no way of meeting a good Christian man. When my friend suggested online dating, I laughed saying "I'm not that desperate." Two weeks later, I joined.
On February 22, 2013, Jacob messaged me and, although I thought he was cute, I wasn't that interested. But, Jacob was persistant and after a few weeks, I saw his servant's heart, challenging love for the Lord, and how he made me laugh. He used one of those "Call Me Maybe" lines to get my number, and sadly, it worked. Our first phone conversation lasted 5 hours and the excitement stirred for an upcoming date. On March 16 we went on our first date and it lasted 15 hours! From that point on, there was no question about it, this was it.
I cannot wait to photograph their wedding. Their love for each other and the kindness they have for other people is inspiring. I hope you enjoy these moments!
