We’re back this afternoon with a beautiful Northern Virginia engagement session from Carrie Holbo Photography [submitted via Two Bright Lights]. Yvonne & John (hey that rhymes!) met in the Air Force and are getting married later this year in Vegas (wooo!) but they wanted to have their engagement session near their home in Old Town Alexandria. It’s hard to tell that this shoot was in January – the light looks warm and inviting, and Yvonne & John don’t look cold at all!
The two of them are gorgeous and so in love and have quite the surprise proposal story to share! Congratulations Yvonne & John!
Yvonne & John’s Northern Virginia Engagement Session in Old Town, Alexandria
How they met:
John and I had a mutual friend who was trying to play match maker (and it worked) and told me about him and vise versa. We then found each other through her “friends” list on Facebook and friended each other.
At the time, I was on a 6 month deployment to Tampa Florida and had 1 month left before I returned to Virginia when John and I started communicating through e-mail. It only took a few days for me to realize that we had a lot in common and the conversations started flowing! After a few days of e-mails, we exchanged phone numbers and we moved on to text messages and phone conversations…we talked everyday after that! John and I made plans to meet for the first time in person the night I returned from Florida. We were both so excited and were counting down the days until then! I left Florida on Wednesday 8 June 2011 and arrived on Thursday the 9th and met him for dinner as soon as I arrived. We’ve been together ever since…
