I met Ricardo & Victoria at Starbucks a little over a month ago and instantly fell in love with them. Victoria has the most stunning smile and gorgeous blonde hair and Ricardo absolutely adores her and I could see it immediately. It was also easy to be comfortable around these two as we chatted at Starbucks. I really hoped they would book us because of this! I love it when Jake & I can really connect with our bride and grooms and when they are warm to be around. Ricardo & Victoria are definitely that way. Victoria texted me just a few weeks ago to let me know that they were choosing us to do their wedding photography. I was ecstatic! <3 We immediately began planning their engagement session. She told me all the things she loved. Water, bridges, white houses and barns. I knew the Chesapeake Arboretum was the perfect location for them.
Just last week we all met at the Chesapeake Arboretum in Chesapeake, Virginia. I was so excited to see both of them and they were just as comfortable as the day I met them in Starbucks. We started off walking and chatting. I learned that Victoria is a Colts fan….booo!!! But even so she is still pretty cool ;). Ricardo serves in our U.S. Military and we are definitely so thankful for his service. 🙂 Not only are these two super comfortable, but they were a dream to photograph because they naturally fell into poses and were natural romancers. When I asked them to kiss, they kissed with all the passion! I teased them about it! <3 Couples like these two make my job so easy and it is so refreshing to see two individuals in love the way they are!
These two are getting married in April at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront and I cannot wait to celebrate with them! <3 Wishing this absolutely adorable couple, Ricardo and Victoria, a VERY happy engagement and so much happiness. All my love to you two beauts! x0x0
