Caryn & Chris’ Playful Downtown Jacksonville E-session

Isn’t this photo awesome? It totally sets the mood for this fun downtown Jacksonville e-session which goes from sweet to playful to all sorts of adorable in the scroll of a mouse. Caryn grew up in the San Marco area and lives only a few minutes away from Chris. The San Marco area is their good ol’ stomping ground and they are just so in love with the place because it’s always a great spot for a quiet dinner and a movie without going far. Naturally they had their engagement photos taken there and thanks to Chloe Austin Photography we get to see them in action. Please enjoy!

How the lovely couple met:

We met in 2004. My friend happened to be seeing his cousin at the time and one night she asked me to go along with her. They met up at Player’s Grille and I remember sitting in the booth with her, and here came along James (Chris’s cousin and best friend) and Chris. Chris sat beside me, and I wanted nothing to do with him. Then it became the routine to hang out with her and James. Before you know it we were inseparable and our anniversary was September 6. We broke up after two years but a few years later, he randomly showed up. We were friends for a year or two, he was occupied and so was I. And, wouldn’t you know it, everything fell back into place, oddly enough on SEPTEMBER 5th, a day before our old anniversary!

We’ve known each other since 2004 and have been dating for 2 1/2 years.

The proposal:

We bought our house together last June, and decided to host a Christmas party at the house for the first time, and did the elephant gift game. When it came game time, we had everyone in the living room/dining room, and had all the names in the hat. Chris had me stand by him at the front, and his brother, the announcer, said as the man of the house, he gets to pick the first name. Chris reached in, and before I knew it, he was on his knee in front of everyone! The best way to describe that fast but slow-motion moment, is “I melted.”
