J+B // Surprise Proposal

Josh + Brandi met on a sitcom studio set in Nashville TN in 2012, he was a camera operator and she was a minor actor. Even though she lived in a small town in Kentucky and he lived in Tennessee, they fell in love and carried on a long distance relationship until moving back to Virginia. They were each other’s first (and now last!) relationship. They now live four hours from Virginia Beach however they’re favorite place to be is on a day-vacation there, so Josh made sure the surprise proposal was there! Tears were present in this couples eyes, as they entered the next chapter of their lives together!! Congratulations J+B!!

Jonathan & Stephanie

It was the perfect day for a Seattle Wedding, March 21st. The sun was shining and these two love birds
said  “I do” with anticipation. They were married by the grooms father in their home church.
The Kubota Botanical Gardens was a great place to get some photos of Jonathan and Stephanie alone for the first time as husband and wife. They were all smiles, telling stories and laughing with each other the entire time! The reception was unique with fun games and an outdoor garter and bouquet toss.  Their love for each other was very apparent and beautiful, I was honored to capture their beautiful day in Seattle Washington!
