{Engagement} Sarah & Jason

Caroline Lima Photography is back on the blog with a beautiful eye-catching engagement session. If you missed her previous bride and groom portrait session with sheep click here. She must love capturing people with animals because this photo session is with animals too! Caroline is an Army wife and based in Raeford, NC plus she is available to travel.

Sarah and Jason are stationed at the Pope Army Airfield (NC). They decided to do part of their session in downtown Fayetteville, NC because of the beautiful old buildings. It was a perfect background for the session! One of them even color coordinated pretty well with what they were wearing. Jason did half of the session wearing his blues and the other half on civilian clothes at an adorable ranch with quite the unique selection of animals!

Here is a little more about this adorable couple:
"We met on actually. He had a schedule where he was always gone, and I moved back by my parents, where they had recently PCS’ed, so I knew no one. So the best way we knew was to go on match. It started with him sending me an email, and I of course wrote back, and then didn’t hear from him again. I just kind of brushed him off, and then out of nowhere he wrote back, so I did the same thing to him, made him wait, then after awhile I wrote back. Then on May 6, we really started talking, and emailing…he was deployed so we couldn’t meet, so for the next two months we got to know each other by email, skype and phone conversations. When he came home the end of June, I met him at the airport to pick him up. I would love to say we “hit it off,” right away, but it took us awhile. We continued “date” for a couple months, and worked through differences we both had. Then all of a sudden something switched in us, and it became serious. I introduced him to my daughter, and they hit it off right away. From that day forward we were inseparable.

I knew the proposal was coming. I was doing laundry in our laundry room, and he didn’t know it. He had called the place he bought my ring to see if it was in yet, because we were getting ready to head to Wrightsville Beach, NC in a couple of days, and he was planning on proposing there. So while I was in the laundry room, I heard everything. When I walked out of the room, his face was like deer in headlights. He didn’t say a word, and I just smiled, tried to tell me that it wasn’t ready, something happened and it’s going to be another week or two, but I knew he was lying, I could see it all over his face. We ended up heading to the beach as planned, he waited all day, and finally said lets go take a walk. We started walking, and found a quiet spot, and stopped. Next thing I knew he was down on knee, and asked me to marry him!" Thank you Sarah for sharing your love story and Caroline for sharing their amazing photos. I'm obsessed with that blue + white striped wall and the yellow door!!
