‘tell me about the sun that doesn’t set’ | OpLove


A dreamy smile lit up Lauren’s face as she told me about Luke proposing just a few days earlier. It happened on the 4th of July, and later they watched the fireworks, sitting on the row in front of me and not knowing it. I kept looking at the sweet couple, obviously in love, and thinking how cute they were together. Little did I know I’d be photographing them soon. Luke will be deployed during their engagement, but if anyone has the kind of love that endures long distance it’s these two.

Jackie...Hi my name is Kim and Lauren is my daughter and Luke is my soon-to-be son-in-law. I am so happy for both of them and know that their love will endure the year-long wait ahead of them. The photographs leave me speechless and have me in tears of joy and awe everytime I look at them...especially the slide show with music! Thank you for capturing a very, very special moment in their lives so beautifully. This is just the beginning of the rest of their lives and God speed to Luke and his "homecoming." God bless you, Jackie, you are truly gifted in your talent of photography. Kim
