Lyndsey and Stephen actually met in Seoul, South Korea at a bar. But when they first met and exchanged numbers, they ended up losing each other’s contacts. Lyndsey wanted to find Stephen again so badly that she made an account on a dating app, and explained in her bio that she was looking for the guy she had just met in South Korea. Stephen’s friend, who happened to be out with them the night that they met, saw her profile and showed Stephen. They were then able to reconnect and see each other, and they will have been together for 2 years this February.
When I asked them what their perfect date night looked like, they said it was eating sushi while lounging on the couch with their adorable husky named Kira (see pictures below!).
What I adore most about these two is their deep admiration for each other. Stephen’s favorite thing about Lyndsey is her wit, and her’s is his soul.
They are currently living in Alexandria together, Stephen is in the Navy, while Lyndsey is a full time student and nanny. I love that when I asked them to describe their lives to me, they said they make spending time together despite their busy schedules a top priority.
Some of their favorite things to do are going on bike rides and hikes together, traveling, and spending time with friends. So for the engagement session we decided to stay close to home and hang out by walking around Old Town Alexandria. Lyndsey and Stephen were actually able to bike the town the day before and pick out all their favorite spots to show me, which turned out perfectly! And of course, I got to meet Kira 🙂
I CAN NOT WAIT to watch you two get married! Thank you so much for trusting me to document your beautiful love story.
