Two strangers who came together for a photo shoot in Virginia have become the talk of Facebook after the photographer in charge captured what was undeniable chemistry between the two.
On July 13, Cassie Bailey, a birth and family photographer, shared photos of Heather John and Baxter Jackson, who had responded to an ad for a stranger meet-up at the Stumpy Lake Nature area in Virginia Beach.
“Heather & Baxter have never met,” Bailey wrote. “They both replied to my ad for a single female & a single male to meet up and do a session. I’m pretty sure they had NO idea what they were getting themselves into BUT THEY SLAYED IT!”
According to Bailey and news station WVEC, John is a 23-year-old single mother of two who is currently studying for a master’s degree in social work. Jackson, on the other hand, has been stationed in Hampton Roads with the Navy since January.
“When I tell you they instantly clicked, they instantly clicked! PLUS LOOK HOW GOOD THEY LOOK TOGETHER!” Bailey wrote. “They did exchange information, so we shall see.”
Bailey’s series of photos has since gone viral, garnering over 43,000 likes and more than 18,000 comments.
“Please say they went out on a date, she graduated, they got married and now are expecting … I need more of this,” one Facebook user wrote. “They look amazing together. We need an update.”
“Omg this is a beautiful story,” another wrote. “I am a lover of love so I hope they give it a shot. Looks like they been together for years. Almost feels like God put his hand in this.”
In an interview with WVEC, John and Jackson revealed that they had actually felt a connection during the shoot and have three dates planned already.
“I wasn’t expecting the connection,” Jackson said. “The whole experience is wild.”
