Aubrey & Raja’s Old Town Alexandria Engagement Pictures on the Water

Their names are Aubrey and Raja and they have been dating for the last ten years!

That was the first line of the email I got from Wolfcrest Photography on today’s real engagement session feature! I’m a sucker for couples that have been together for years before finally tying the knot and plus the beautiful foliage & Old Town’s gorgeous historic scenery make for a beautiful Virginia engagement session feature today. Enough from me, more love! Happy Monday Romancers!

How they met:

When he first met me during our freshmen year of high school, Raja was pretty sure I didn’t like him. He walked up to me in Mr. Corey’s Western Civ class to introduce himself and said, “Hi Audrey, my name is Raja”. I looked at him and said, “It’s Aubrey”, and that was it. I do not remember this exchange, but for his 14-year old self, it was traumatic.

Not one to be discouraged though, he charmed me into being his friend, partially to get cliff notes on the history reading that he never did, but mostly because he thought I was cute. You see, he had a crush on me as soon as he saw me; and while it’s been a long time since Mr. Corey’s history class, he still does.

Gretchen & Tom’s Bicycle Riding Engagement in Old Town Alexandria, VA

I am struggling this morning. While the bachelorette party this weekend was an absolute blast, and a success, my old bones most certainly cannot handle two nights of partying & staying up until 3am and 4am respectively. Not to mention waking up at 5:30 am due to my husband’s alarm waking him up to catch a flight.

HOWEVER. I am done complaining [that is not what this blog is for] and rejuvenating myself instead with a lovely engagement session courtesy of ZADesignz, submitted via Two Bright Lights.

Photographer, Zareth shares:

Gretchen and Tom wanted a bicycle-riding-ice-cream-eating engagement session. We went over to Old Town Alexandria, and walked around the area a bit. They went to Ben & Jerry’s for some ice cream, and then they rode the bikes. The yellow brick wall over at Chadwick’s was the perfect background for some portraits. I love the way these came out.

A bit about the couple:

Gretchen and Tom first met on the eleventh floor of Bradfield Hall during meteorology orientation in the fall of 2002. They instantly became friends through shared loves of weather, bowling and Cornell Dairy Bar Ice Cream. Over the years, they shared in enduring engineering math and physics courses, long treks up Libe Slope in a foot of snow and (disappointing) upstate New York stormchasing attempts, but it was not until late in their Cornell careers that Tom and Gretchen discovered they belonged with each other.
