Though they both attended the same college, Jacob and Annie's paths didn't seem likely to cross each other since music and nursing majors rarely interacted.  But they did cross, thanks to a bible study they both started attending just a few years back.  Jacob first knew Annie as the sweet girl that every guy in the group was crushing on, though she was seemingly unaware of almost all of this ;)  And while he thought she was pretty and fun, he wasn't interested in becoming just another guy on that list, so he kept his distance, and didn't even attempt much of a friendship with her.

Things continued like this for months, during which Jacob even cheered a buddy on as he became interested in Annie and eventually asked her out.  Annie wasn't interested though, and when she turned the guy down Jacob realized that he was ...relieved?  glad?  Because Annie WAS sweet, and beautiful, and loved Jesus more than any girl he'd ever met, and he was suddenly ready to fight his way through the crowd of suitors that seemed to always surround her and win her heart.

Fight for her he did, and though the process was slow at times, he won her with his quiet confidence, compassion and love for people, and his ability to "make everyone anybody and everybody around him feel important and at ease."  One of Annie's first impressions of him even before they started dating was that he was "more like Jesus than any person I have ever met."  They read books together, drank coffee and cooked together, and quickly became the best of friends.  When Jacob asked Annie to marry him last December she said yes and they're getting married next month!

Congratulations Jacob & Annie, thank you for including me in this special time of your life, enjoy a few of my favorites from your engagement session!  Can't wait for your wedding day!
