Christmas Engagements: Emily + Jacob

During the holidays, the quaint little town of Forest City turns into a Hallmark movie set!  Not really, but you would certainly think so if you drove through!  Emily loves the holidays and is even planning a Christmas in July themed wedding.  So it was only fitting to do their engagement session in this cute Christmas town!

Emily and Jacob met several years ago while attending a summer church camp.  She thought he didn’t like her because he wouldn’t talk to her.  So one day during camp, Emily confronted him and asked why he didn’t like her.  To her surprise, he had a crush on her and was too shy to try and talk to her.  From then on, the two were inseparable.

Emily loves books and spends a lot of her free time at the local bookstore.  So for their first date, Jacob took her to the bookstore and bought her a book.  Since this was such a special day for them, we started their engagement session at the bookstore where it all began.

These two have a love like no other and it’s such a honor to capture this beautiful time in their lives!  I can’t wait for their July wedding!
