Getting to capture the love between Morgan + Jac was just so special. I haven't learned a ton about them besides that they are obviously meant to be together. It's so clear to me even through hanging out and photographing them for just a few hours. I asked Morgan to fill out a "Two Bright Lights" questionnaire, which basically allows me to submit their photos to different wedding magazines and blogs not really knowing what questions were on it and I am so moved by her responses.
The love the two of them have for each other is so so sweet and totally undeniable. The way they answered the questions about their story and how they got to where they are comes from such a deep place of love and respect that I couldn't not try and submit them! It goes to show that in this world of modern dating and relationships that you CAN find your BEST FRIEND in the world and have the most amazing life with them!
Morgan + Jac are literally the couple of all couples, because they have the kind of relationship everyone wants to have. Morgan looks at Jac in a way you can just tell she cares so much for him, and the way Jac looks at morgan could make any girl's heart melt into a 4 foot deep puddle of love. They had been together since High School, Engaged for 2 years, just bought a house and are finally now planning their wedding. So we might as well dub them the creators of the hashtag, #RelationshipGoals.
Morgan + Jac are the kind of people who are always down for exploring and having a good time, so when it came to their engagement session they pretty much said "Heck yeah lets go do something cool".
We spent the day hiking and running up and down sand dunes, checking out light houses and exploring the West side of Michigan from Grand Rapids to Mears. We ended at the coolest retro drive-in diner called Dogs-N-Suds that gave Morgan and I all of the Riverdale Vibes.
I couldn't have had more fun with these two. The day started and ended on two perfect notes!
*cliff hanger, you have to scroll through all of the photos in order to get to Morgan's Q&A that I've left you all wondering about*
& incase all of you are on the edge of your seats about these questions and answers from Morgan + Jac, prepare for your hearts to melt because here they are...
Q: Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?
A: We met in high school Orchestra. I played the violin and he played the Bass and I thought he was really cool, but I was too shy to ask him out. We ran into each other years later.
Q: What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. (example: pushing each other to new limits, love to travel, huge comic book fans, foodies, etc.) What makes your relationship unique?
A: We are best friends and cherish every moment that we spend together. It makes life very special when you have a partner that you can share experiences with and look forward to the memories that you will make in the future. It is the cumulative affect of going through life and growing with your best friend and partner, watching your partner achieve success in all aspects of life, and exploring new experiences and activities together that make our relationship so very special. We enjoy traveling and exploring new places and food together, spending time outdoors, and just the day to day life that we have together.
Q: How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship? (these may often be the same moment, but aren’t always)
A: We knew we wanted to be together and that each other was “the one” when we realized we never ever got sick of being around each other.
Q: Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?
A: We were in our fifth year of courtship, and we had known that we were madly in love with each other. Jack had my ring custom ordered and had planned on proposing over a romantic candlelit dinner at our favorite restaurant. As soon as the ring was finished, he knew that he couldn’t wait for us to begin our commitment to spending the rest of our lives together. We went for a moonlit walk downtown after the annual lighting of the Christmas tree at our state capital. We shared a warm ebrace under the brilliant lights and he got down on one knee, professed his love for me and asked for my hand in marriage.
