To quote Amanda, “We’ve been friends since flip phones.” We met freshman year in college when we lived on the same floor in the dorms. We became fast friends and went on to being teammates on the swim team and having a lot of crazy great adventures together. After two years I transferred schools and then Amanda moved to a couple different states after graduating. She’s one of those friends that you can talk to once or twice a year and it feels like no time has past, so when she called to tell me she was engaged, I was truly thrilled for her. When she asked me to photograph her wedding I was even more excited. The wedding was in Virginia so Phil and I flew out there for the wedding and took an extra few days and made it a little mini vacation for ourselves as well. We met Joe for the first time on Saturday and could tell instantly that he made Amanda happy and they were a great pair together. Saturday started off rainy but stopped just in time for outdoor portraits. The ceremony and reception were at the Evergreen Country Club in Haymarket which was an ideal setting for a fall wedding. Everything about the day was beautiful. Congratulations to Amanda and her new husband Joe! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and love together.
