Jon and Courtney are what I would call a pioneering couple. They met in Elon, NC and moved to Charlotte soon afterwards. They had the initiative and resourcefulness to move away from family and friends to a new city where they only had each other to rely on. This hit home with me, as my wife and I have a similar situation with our families being on opposite ends of the country. This fact makes these images more special as it is about them, alone, as a couple relying on each other for support and strength. I admire their resolve in paving their own way in a new city and taking the chance on a beautiful life together.
