Alexan & Becky - Massanutten Resort Overlook - Virginia Proposal Photography

“I’ve got to tell you their proposal story as we go along here, because Becky did such a great job orchestrating it. It’s also helpful that Alexan apparently trusts Becky very much! ;)

Barbara-Ann & Scott - Chapel Hill, NC Engagement Photographer

Last week I posted Hunter’s first communion photos! His mom Barbara-Ann had recently gotten engaged, so after we took photos at the church, we headed over to a park to do some engagement photos for her & her fiancé Scott. I love how they used this photo session for both purposes! They also ordered photo art that reflected both celebrations, so don’t miss photos of those at the bottom of each post!

Kristen & Darrin - Chinese Lantern Festival Proposal Photography - Cary, NC

“I had the pleasure of meeting Kristen & Darrin at a Durham Bulls baseball game as part of a local JMU Alumni meetup night. (Go Dukes!) My husband and I enjoyed chatting with them that evening, and I mentioned that I’m a photographer during part of our conversation. Months passed, and Darrin eventually knew he wanted to propose to Kristen sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas 2018. The Chinese Lantern Festival felt like the perfect place for them to celebrate such a momentous occasion. As soon as he told someone he was going to propose, they said he needed a photographer, and he went and called me right away!! (Gentlemen, take note. Photos of your proposal are basically expected at this point!)”

It’s usually not prompted and happens just because we’re having fun. We had SO much fun in 2014 that all the photos featured in this second installation of my Joyful & Silly series are from that year alone! Enjoy!”
