Friends, this couple is so close to my heart. Emily and Jon live in Portland, and met up with me while I was visiting Oregon to ask me to photograph their elopement in Arizona. They have the kindest hearts and welcomed me into their elopement day like I was a part of their family. One of the best parts? We hung out the day before their elopement for their in home engagement session at their adorable air bnb (we maaaay have even snuck in a trip to Papago Park too!). Read below for the best ‘how we met’ story, and check back tomorrow for a blog of their intimate elopement at Superstition Mountain.
“Jon and I met when my assistant stole my phone and downloaded Tinder in a desperate attempt to get me back into the dating world. Jon and I texted back and forth for a YEAR before I worked up the courage to go on my first blind date! On our first date we went to a local bar and both ordered Gin and Tonics. We discovered we were both single parents (our kids Reagan and Harlo are only 20 days apart in age), we both loved Jesus, and by the end of the night we were at his best friends house where I met most of his friends who were all there playing video games. They were all so down to earth and kind – I felt like I would fit right in! The night he proposed was New Years Eve. I had been saving a mason jar filled with little loves notes of our memories since we had began dating and I thought he didn’t know about it! (little did I know he had snooped around and found it months earlier!) New Years Eve was going to be the night that I finally read all of my little loves notes to him! We put the kids to bed and I excitedly pulled out the jar. When I got to the very last slip of paper in the jar it said, “Dec 31st 2017- The night we got engaged”. He totally got me!”
Jon and Emily so obviously have a deep love and adoration for not only each other, but each of their kids as well. They are ridiculously fun, joy-filled and 100% chill. Don’t believe me? Take a look at their adorable engagement session below (and check back tomorrow for a peek at their elopement!)
