Some of the best love stories are the ones that require patience, perseverance, and steadfast hope. You know, those stories when someone held out for what was truly best and ended up with something ten times better. That is Jonathon + Lisa’s love story.
I have known Lisa for many, many years and have seen her hold out for God’s best in her life. She has been an incredible example to me of persevering in prayer and faith in God’s ability to write the best story in her life. And boy, did He! In the meantime of waiting for that Mr. Someone, Lisa grew in beauty, kindness, and in her ability to love each person in her life deeply. And then when that Mr. Someone came along by the name of Jonathon, it became clear that God knew exactly what He was doing. Jonathon makes Lisa laugh and brings her comfort in his embrace. He is her safe place and delights to bring her joy. In just one evening together, it became clear that Jonathon is definitely passionate about two things: 1]Lisa and 2]The Pizza Joint [a passion we were quite glad to get shared with us;)], but especially Lisa.
For their engagement session we went right to where it all began: Downtown El Paso. The baseball stadium, where they had their first date. The stairs where they sat and took their first photo together as a couple. They took us down memory lane, as we visited where it all began.
And this weekend we cannot wait to capture their new memories- the ones they will get to visit for years to come and remember the day that they got married!
Ironically, we have TWO J + E #tandemcouples this summer, getting married just two weeks apart! Check out the other Elizabeth’s engagement session as we look forward to that wedding soon!
