Canebrake Country Club Engagement — Jacki and Jon — Hattiesburg, MS

Jacki and Jon first crossed paths in high school. It took time and patience before Jacki realized she really liked him. Jon noticed this, and before they knew it, they were falling in love. After graduation, Jon joined the US Marines and spent the majority of his time in combat, far away from Jacki. Their time together was limited, and the long distance was definitely a struggle. After four years, Jon returned home. This time, he would keep her forever. 

We began our session at the lovely Canebrake Country Clubhouse in Hattiesburg.

Of course we had to show off Jacki's gorgeous engagement ring. Jon did an amazing job choosing it for her! 

As the sun started to set, we made our way closer to the water, and it was nothing short of spectacular.

As the light set over the horizon, we made our way to an open grassy area nearby to have a little fun.

Jacki and Jon, thank you so much for allowing me to document such an important part of your lives. I'm truly honored to have been there with you, and that I can show your love to the world in the way it should be seen. You have beautiful souls, and I love the love you have for each other. I wish you only the best for your upcoming marriage.
