I am so excited to share this very special love story today. This one is near and dear to my heart because it is the first wedding I have ever photographed at my very own college, JMU! But more importantly, Julie and Thomas are two of the kindest people I have ever met and I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to have shared this day with.
Julie and Thomas met at JMU in the Shenandoah dorms. Alongside studying and all that comes with college, they found something in each other that they would hold onto for the rest of their lives. Four years later, they graduated from JMU and moved to Northern Virginia together. They decided to have their wedding at in the same place their love story began. JMU is a special place to Thomas and Julie, and during their portraits as we walked around the arboretum, Thomas told me about all the projects that he remembered doing there in his classes. When I asked Julie what was most important to them about their wedding day, she said the people, and that she was so excited to see her and Thomas’s family come together for this special occasion.
I am so blessed to have had this opportunity and can’t thank you enough, Julie and Thomas, for choosing me to be the one to capture your very special day.
