While Sean and I were dating he introduced me to one of his buddies from the Fire Department, Mike. Mike and Sean would go out drinking and I’d get so jealous because I wanted to spend time with Sean during any available free time. (I was smitten over the man what can I say….) 5 years ago Mike met this girl at a local bar in Short Pump called Bar Louie where he would go drinking after work. He met Kristen while she was a waitress there. Mike started dating Kristen in April 2012 and introduced us to Kristen few months before Sean and I were to get married. Kristen and I grew close by going on shopping trips, attempting to follow a workout program together and date nights with our other halves. Those were some fun times. Living out in Prince George and not really knowing anyone it felt good to have a friend close. After I had Riley life kinda separated us. We still talked but not like we use to. After many talks about getting married (and randomly looking at rings) its FINALLY happening! KRISTEN & MIKE ARE ENGAGED! They are set to get married at the Boat House in Richmond VA in June. Kristen messaged me in October about doing her Engagement session and I was ECSTATIC! Hell Yes I’ll take y’alls engagement session. We picked out two locations: Trapezium Brewery & Church Hill. You guys can I say this was freaking AMAZING! The light was gorgeous, the beer was tasty and Mike was a trip! haha
When we got to Trapezium we had a couple beers. It made the session so much fun! We were all laid back and the staff was awesome. The beer and weather was wonderful too. Mike got a little frisky (see picture below) haha.
Kristen wanted to do a couple pictures in Richmond as that is where they are set to get married. I was all for going to Richmond. Love shooting in Church Hill. A week before our session one of my mentees showed me a cool new spot in Church Hill. I asked Kristen if she was up for it and she was game. But that is not where the day ended. We had to get one picture of them and their babies (louie and lilly) Yes there two dogs. Ahhhh I cannot get over how much I love them and this session.
Kristen & Mike – I am so excited to be a part of your wedding in June. Congrats on your engagement and enjoy every step of it. Before you know you will be like Sean and I; Married 5 years and a little one running around. *Wink*
