Kirk+Samantha, Downtown Jacksonville, Treaty Oak Park, Jacksonville FL, Engagement Photography
August 16, 2016
Samantha was visiting a friend in Jacksonville, when she first met Kirk. He was chugging hot sauce after being dared by a friend. Now, if you know Kirk, you’re not surprised! Needless to say, he won the bet and definitely caught Samantha’s attention. Eventually, Samantha moved to Jacksonville. As fate would have it, Samantha and Kirk hung out in the same group of friends. They became best of friends and did everything together! Over a year of spending time together, Samantha knew she had found the one. And, little did she know that he was trying to slowly win her affection the entire time. The two became “official” when Kirk asked her to be his valentine with tons of red balloons and a personalized card. The couple used a red balloon icon through text messages to describe anything they were excited about. The red balloon really became their “theme” from then on. So it was no surprise, when Kirk brought Samantha home to a room filled with red balloons from floor to ceiling. Each balloon told a different reason why he loved her, and hanging from one balloon was a beautiful engagement ring. Kirk got on his knee and she very enthusiastically said, “Yes!”
It was online fitting that we would incorporate the red balloons for their engagement session in downtown Jacksonville. We began at an abandoned warehouse (with our newly redone vintage couch) and went on to some of our favorite downtown spots! These two kept us laughing more than any other couple before! They are total goof balls! The two will tie the knot this August at the gorgeous Treasury on the Plaza in St. Augustine.
