Last fall, I met Becki and Chris at their house to kick off a roving engagement portrait session in the Shenandoah Valley. We drove to a nearby farm that they pass every day for a few photos at the barn and then ventured out to Lake Laura. It was a beautifully sunny day and even without leaves on the trees, the lake was the perfect setting for this outdoorsy, water-loving couple. I just love all the colorful canoes in the background of their photos!
Becki and Chris met years ago but reconnected in 2015. Soon after, she started receiving packages of deer jerky in her mailbox. 🙂 I’m pretty sure she knew they were from the new man in her life, but her daughter was ready to launch a CSI investigation to find out her secret admirer. 🙂 This past summer, Chris whisked Becki away on a beach trip and proposed! So sweet!
On a personal note, I’m so happy for this girl! I met Becki three years ago at my cousin’s wedding, and have taken senior portraits for both her daughters. Early on, I knew Becki shared my love of photos when she didn’t think twice about hoisting her daughter up onto a giant haybale just to get like two shots!
Congratulations to Becki and Chris! Can’t wait for your big day!
