About the couple:
Sydney and John’s story all begins back in middle school. They weren’t the most popular kids but they made a connection instantly. John had a growth hormone deficiency and therefore was way smaller than any of his peers but to Sydney, it didn’t matter, she even called him her little short buddy.
Time went on and they went to different high schools but remained friends. When college came Sydney chose Bellarmine while John moved to Eastern Kentucky University. Sydney came home for the summer and John had just moved back home and was out with some friends. He noticed a girl sitting in his truck.
When John approached, they immediately reconnected and talked for the rest of the night. He got her Snapchat and number then asked her to hang out but she turned him down because we had both just gotten out of long term relationships. Despite Sydney not wanting to get into anything serious they decided to catch a movie. After finding themselves laughing the whole night through, they sat on the hood of the car in a cornfield the rest of the night and watched the stars.
They’ve been together every day since that night.
John worked 2 jobs and volunteered as a firefighter in order to move closer to Sydney. He would get off work Saturday’s and drive up late at night to spend one day a week with her. In his words, “It was all worth it.” The following April John moved in with her in an apartment just 2 miles from her college.
3 years later, on a family vacation to one of Sydney’s family homes, John dropped to one knee below the wishing tree. It turned out he had made a wish to propose to Sydney there two years prior.
Sydney immediately said yes, tears streaming down her face while her family captured the moment.
All about their Session:
When I met Sydney and John at Hubers Winery, you could feel their love. John protects Sydney with everything he has and Sydney trusts him with her whole heart. One of the best parts of our shoot was when Sydney picked a sunflower and put it behind her hair. John then wanted to do the exact same thing which just brought the biggest grin to Sydney’s face. The two of them snuggled together seamlessly, saying that it was just another typical day for them. You can see how much they enjoy being around each other in these elegant photos.
