This is Debbie and Stephen! Debbie and I go waaaaay back – we know each other from high school (I’ll spare myself from saying how many years ago that was). I couldn’t be happier for her that she has found Stephen and that they’re getting married next year! Yesterday we met up in Old Town Alexandria to take engagement photos on a beautiful crisp fall day.
Okay, this is just too cute:
So sweet. (Side note: Does Debbie have the most perfect skin or what?!)
Debbie and Stephen’s courtship (people should use that word more) frequently took place in Old Town, including this super cute ice cream shop.
Every once in a while during an engagement session, I joke with my couples and say something like, “Okay now I want you to both climb to the top of that tree…” just to see their reactions. (I’m hilarious.) This time the joke was on me when Debbie said, “We should go get in the canoe.” I was all, haha – that’s funny, but they actually did go get in the canoe. They stood in it. And Debbie was wearing heels! That combo would have had me in the water in about a half-second. Hello balance skills!
Debbie and Stephen, it was so fun to hang out with you yesterday! I love the photos and I hope you enjoy them, too. Best of luck with the rest of your wedding planning, and I’ll see you next year for the big day! Say hi to Kip for me.
