Alecia & Billy | Engaged!
"Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more." -H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Alecia and Billy are givers. I don't think I've ever mentioned that my mother is a teacher, but it isn't just for that reason that I have a deep respect and admiration for anyone patient, generous, and daring enough to teach and inspire young minds. Not only is Alecia a teacher, but she teaches biology and environmental science! DOUBLE win in my book! So, we're already off to a good start...and I'm about to go infomercial on ya here...prepare yourself...here it is...BUT WAIT THERE"S MORE!
Alecia and Billy are also volunteer firefighters. These two do a lot of good in the world, and I have so much respect and admiration for folks like them. What an amazing foundation to build a relationship on!
I found Alecia and Billy's session to be a little different than others I have done before, as their love is a little more quiet, more reserved, but so, so strong. Their images were some of the most powerful I've had the honor of taking, just because I could
see FEEL that the connection between them was theirs, and theirs alone.
Sometimes I am overwhelmed with the "job" these folks trust me to do...it really is one of the most significant and meaningful things I've ever done in my life. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for letting me show off your giving spirits and your love to the world.
Cheers! I can't wait for your lovely wedding in June! And not just because your dalmation Rocky is your ring bearer and will be in a doggy tux, but man, seriously...right up my ally!!! :-)
We started with a couple at Prince William Regional Park. Best light of the evening!
That look Billy gives her...<3
CHECK OUT THAT RING! Lovely.
A few more quiet moments as the evening grew dark.
Ran out of light? No problem, we found twinkly lights!
Luckily I brought my flash along too!
HOW ROMANTIC IS THIS!?! I'm pretty sure Jarad would drop me if we tried something like this haha...but they were pros!
