Cynthia + Jason - Engaged

I first met Cynthia over 5 years ago through a co-worker, while she was attending JMU. She was so darling, and such a beam of fun and light, that before I even really knew her I would joke with our mutual friend that she was my girl crush. When I actually got to know her nothing changed about that crush and I realized she was just a fabulous as I thought. 

Fast forward to when she met Jason while she was bartending, fell in love and then moved just down the road from me! I was overjoyed. I was even more overjoyed when she reached out to me about possibly capturing their upcoming wedding at Court Manor, an unbelievable farm down the road from my grandparents, which I have driven past since I was a young girl. I've admired Court Manor for so many years, dreaming of doing a wedding there, but never really thinking it may happen one day. 

For their engagement shoot, we ran around the farm and fields chasing light. To say this shoot was a dream would be an understatement. They are both such gorgeous people and their session was no short of gorgeous too. We had such a fun shoot together. I have to pinch myself sometimes when I realize I get to do this as a job. Running around with friends or making new ones, in stunning places, watching two people who can't help but ooze love for one another.  And that was Jason and Cynthia. I can't wait to celebrate and capture their wedding day next June. Until then we will just have to have double dates by the lake with the puppies and boys.
