They met at a party. Although she wasn’t looking to date anyone, he was persistent. And a bit of persistence pays off. A little while later, she came around & have been inseparable since. It’s Barrett & Jocelyn’s story.
In some ways their personalities could not be more different. She’s generally quiet, firm & motivated. And Jocelyn, or ‘Jocey’ as called by friends, describe him as caring, supportive & possessing the ability to have a conversation with everyone in the room. She’s an accountant & he’s in sales. Yet I’d say they compliment one another perfectly. And isn’t that the way love often works? Seems we are often drawn to traits in others that we wish for ourselves.
The night before they were to set out on vacation with friends, Barrett & Jocelyn discussed the idea of marriage. Yet the idea seemed far off as Barrett expressed the idea of waiting she finished school & life was a bit less hectic. Although she felt a bit of disappointment at the thought, she brushed it off. Two days later, they came back to their hotel room after dinner & were enjoying conversation on the balcony. Next thing she knew, he asked for her hand in marriage. It was perfect.
To celebrate their engagement, Barrett & Jocelyn were eager to do an outdoor engagement session that reflected their personality & relationship together. They love the great outdoors, whether it be going to the lake, camping, drives through the mountains, & more. As ideas were thrown around concerning location, we both shared a love for the Cherokee National Forest. I grew up in these waters, jumping waterfalls, caving, hiking, rappelling & canoeing. We met up at one of my favorite places in the world & enjoyed some time together. Plus, they are getting married at one of my favorite venues in the Tellico Plains area, Telliquah Falls.
Here are a few of my favorites. They were up for anything!
You guys are so much fun!
Hey-oh!!! Beautiful ring.

The weather was perfect & the overcast sky made for idea lighting.
