Maria & James Engaged

So there's a story I want to tell you guys about the photo above.   We were walking around Old Town in Alexandria, VA for the engagement shoot and I asked them to sit on top of this brick wall.  While they were moving into position, James found a letter under that brick that's to the left of James, and I asked James to read it out loud while I took photos of them.  It was a letter written by a girl to her boyfriend telling him how much she loved him and wanted to be with him for the rest of her life.  Although James and Maria's relationship is not nearly as sappy (probably the exact opposite), the fact that they found this letter while they were posing for an engagement shoot made for a coincidence that added a bit of magic to our shoot.

They're getting married in April and will  actually be the first wedding where I am standing as a groomsmen.  I am going to do my best to not have a camera with me that day.

They have a great website that tells you their story.  They also have a blog which I don't see much couples do.
