John and Jessica | St Louis & Rolla Couples Photographer

May 22, 2019

I’m not sure how I end up with so many sweet, fun couples. John and Jessica were certainly no exception! From the start, this couple was enthusiastic, adventuresome, joyful, and all-in-all, people you genuinely enjoy being with.

John and Jessica are originally from Arizona where they met in MIDDLE SCHOOL! They were friends all through school (they have a picture of them together at John’s prom!) but only started dating a year ago! Now they live here in North Carolina.

When Jessica reached out to me to see if I could do a couples shoot for them and their two adorable pups, Dynamo and Racer, I quickly said yes and we decided to go shoot at Craggy Gardens! In my opinion, it’s one of the prettiest places in Asheville, and I absolutely LOVE shooting there!

John and Jessica braved the hike – faring better than I (it was a subtle hint to myself that I need to get back into shape :D) – and the sun teased us by  coming out and then hiding behind clouds for the ENTIRE evening. Even though the wind whipped her gorgeous hair out of shape, Jessica giggled through the entire shoot, and I LOVE how joyous she looks! John was so great at doing anything I asked – and by the end of the shoot, I didn’t even have to tell him what to do.

John and Jessica, thank you so much for the honor of letting me work with y’all and your cute pups! I so enjoyed getting to know y’all and our time together! I hope you guys love these pictures as much as I do. 🙂

Enjoy a few of my favorites from their shoot!
