We have officially entered a season of our life where we feel old! I knew this day would come and I actually remember HOPING that this day would come 5-7 years ago when Michael was a full time youth pastor and I was really close to the kids… especially the girls. I remember thinking “You know, I hope one day down the road I’ll get a text or an email when these girls are all grown up and are engaged!” I remember that thought crossing my mind several times when I envisioned what our life would look like down the road. It’s so exciting that that season is HERE!!!
Amanda was always the one who I could never imagine being in a bad mood. Even when she was tired from practice or super busy with senior year, she was always so joyful. It’s impossible to be around her and not feel the happiness she exudes. Amanda is gorgeous, she’s brilliant and she’s also incredibly athletic. It makes sense that her future husband would be an athlete as well!!
These two met their freshman year at William and Mary. During their shoot we took pictures in front of their freshmen dorm and I asked them if they ever imagined that they would be back on their old stomping ground taking engagement photos together!! They love their campus. I can’t count how many times they both mentioned how much they loved being back there where it all began!! This is why I love photographing engagement sessions in a location that means a lot to our couples. They will forever have beautiful portraits where their story officially started to unfold!
The day of their session, there really wasn’t a chance of rain and yet somehow, it rained ALL EVENING. We decided to give their session a shot despite the weather conditions because they had already made the trip down to Williamsburg and so had we!!! Thankfully these two are so easy going that misty rain didn’t seem to phase them! I’m SO pleased with what we were able to capture despite the rain!! When you see how photogenic these two are, you’ll understand why it was so easy to create beautiful portraits on a cloudy, rainy day!
Michael and I feel so grateful that we are the ones who have the privilege of capturing this special season of Amanda and Christian’s life! I don’t know what I’m going to do at their wedding when it’s time for the daddy/daughter dance. I’m tearing up just thinking about it! I feel like we have had a front row seat watching Amanda grow up from her young high school years throughout college. Now she’s going to be a WIFE in a matter of months!! I love seeing God write this part of her story and we are so grateful that He has given her such an incredible man to spend the rest of her life with!!!!
Enjoy getting to know these two through their engagement session and get excited for their wedding day next year!!!
This is one of those sessions that will go down as a classic. It doesn’t get more beautiful than an early fall, downtown Annapolis engagement session with gorgeous light!
On Sunday evening, I posted a reel on my Instagram about something NEW that I tried in the photography world and WOAH did it create an uproar.
