• Joseph + Melissa | Engaged

even know where to begin with these two! Let’s start with Melissa… or Moe. Our friendship started on the floor of my freshman dorm at our very first Hall Meeting in York River East.  This bubbly girl sat beside me and said “is that a promise ring?! I have one of those!!!” and we’ve been friends ever since. Melissa and I stayed friends through our college years and even though we didn’t hangout all the time, it was NEVER awkward to be together. I just loved this girl! She was fun and spunky and genuinely just a sweet person to have in my life! Fast forward to senior year. I’ve known Joe from a distance but know we’re both on V-Team for Intervarsity…

… which means we’re the students leading the chapter for that year. I was in charge of the worship team and he was in charge of everything else. Just kidding…. but he really did have a lot of responsibility that year.  Melissa was ALSO on V-Team and we all became really close.  It’s hard NOT to be close when you’re constantly meeting and going on retreats and planning events and making large group happen every Thursday night!! The funny thing about V-Team is that I was serving in that leadership role when my business was entering its’ second year.  My second year I shot over 20 weddings while I was still in school and still had all of my “school” responsibilites. So, this V-Team was VERY patient with me when I didn’t have any sleep and when I was showing up to retreats a day late!!


So we were all on V-team together and at some point or another…. everyone would say things like “Oh, KK you’re shooting my wedding right?!”. And I would laugh say  “yea! sure!”.  The funny thing is, I was telling Joe and Melissa and the rest of the team “Yea! I’ll shoot your weddings” and never once thought about who they would be marrying!! Turns out, a year after college, Joe and Melissa start dating!! Once it was FB official and everyone knew… we were all like “What?! Why didn’t we think of this SOONER?!! They make a GREAT pair!”.   We went through all of college with these two and I NEVER realized how cute of a couple they would be until they actually started dating!!


I love Joe and Moe! It was so much fun shooting their engagement sessions in downtown RVA and I’m thankful they made the drive up to meet me!! I’m so excited for them as they get ready to spend the rest of their life together!! God has perfect timing and I’m so excited that these two found each other!! It just makes me happy!!!! So enjoy these favorites and get pumped for their winter wedding!!!

You know I love those doors!
