October 5th was forecasted to be a warmer day, and though the evening sun gave off a warm autumn glow as it glistened through the trees and kissed the tips of the grass in the field, it was the perfect temperature for Jonathon and Casey’s engagement session on Jonathon’s grandfather’s farm in Mid-Missouri. Everywhere you turned was a portrait opportunity waiting to happen in these rolling fields. It was quiet, with crickets beginning their evening chirping and birds singing their final songs of the day. It was a romantic setting to document this milestone in Jonathon and Casey’s relationship.
Casey recalled, “We had been turkey hunting early on a spring morning. We were walking back across the farm at sunrise; the sun was causing the frost in the field to shine and the cows were grazing in the pasture. We had reached the truck that was sitting near the opening of the field, the entrance embowered with a fence-lined arbor, and Jonathon came to my side of the truck and took his jacket off. After, he dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him!”
Jonathon and Casey will be exchanging vows in Vienna, MO. next June. I cannot wait to see their golden and light blue hued wedding.
Jonathon lives and works in Arkansas a majority of the time, but comes home to be with Casey and his family every chance he gets. They enjoy spending this precious time with one another on the farm riding the four-wheeler and fishing.
As the sun began to duck down behind the treeline for the evening, Jonathon, Casey, and I chased the remaining sunlight up a large hill towards the end of their session. It turns out, this was the same exact field in which Jonathon asked Casey to marry him! I imagine that the field shone during their session in the same way that it did when Jonathon proposed. Talk about romantic!
