Stacie & Kevin | Engaged! | Occoquan, Virginia Engagement Photographer
The first time we met, we closed down a panera-I know, I'm such a party animal. ;-) We chatted for hours before an employee finally alerted us that it was closing time (read: please leave I'd like to finish my shift and go home) haha. While I think we all wished it was over a cold beer instead (especially after discovering that Kevin is big into craft brews) hours pass like minutes with these two. What struck me was how well their personalities complimented each other. Like pieces of a puzzle, these two just fit. Stacie's effervescent, outgoing nature, coupled with Kevin's more calm, analytic, but equally friendly disposition make for a beautiful balance and one fantastic team. Both are smart as a whip and quick to make you feel comfortable around them, making conversations a breeze and their excitement contagious.
I've been living in Occoquan for a little over a year now, and had yet to do a shoot there! It is so cute and I am always jealously observing other photographers shooting around town when I'm walking Loony-tunes (aka Luna). So, when Stacie and Kevin came up for their engagement shoot, I was elated! While I wish we would have had more time to stroll around a bit more, I LOVED their shots and will definitely be encouraging others to take advantage of this pretty little town in the future.
We then hopped in the car and sped over to Mason Neck Park to catch the last, romantic light of the evening. There's something enchanting about the soft light after the sun nears, and dips below the horizon, and these two definitely knew how to take advantage of it. The tranquility of an empty park and glowing skies over the water almost countered my awkward excitement about their "snuggles" ;-) and made for a very romantic overtone.
I couldn't be more excited for your wedding, guys! Your love, your enthusiasm, and your FUN selves are going to light up the city and riverfront come October, I can feel it. <3 Cheers, and congratulations!!
We started with a BANG! So sweet!
We stopped at an open field on the way to the park, and I am SO GLAD WE DID! GAHHHH SO AWESOME. <3 BEAUTIFUL "D'awwww you guyyyyyyss" -me when I saw this one for the first time Pretty, pretty, pretty ring. :-) And of course Kevin had to bust out some Chief's love. :-) They are going to Kansas City and got a SUITE at a game as part of their honeymoon! Love it. Bahahahah! The silly shots are always near and dear to my heart. ;-) Yep...amazing.
Congrats again you guys!!
