2 Comments

Add Kimie from IYQ Photography to the long list of people I have met online, that I am DYING to meet in person. Our email exchanges are always fun and she hands down sends me some of my favorite features to date. Today’s snowy love shoot is no different.

This shoot at Libby Hill Park in Richmond, VA, has all the makings of a Capitol Romance feature fave: the adorable dog, the snowy weather, and a gorgeous couple SO full of love and laughter.  I know you all will enjoy Shawnee & Robyn’s snowy love shoot just as much as I do. A special thanks again to IYQ Photography for the images [submitted via Two Bright Lights].

Robyn & Shawnee’s Snowy, Richmond Virginia Love Shoot at Libby Hill Park

How they met:

Shawnee and I actually met on okcupid. I made a profile a few years ago but never took meeting anyone on it seriously. But when she messaged me I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to meet her! She messaged me on valentines day of last year. We started talking and realized we had a bunch of mutual friends and decided to meet. It was peaceful and honest. She swept me off my feet! We hung out for a few weeks, until one weekend she planned a camping trip for the two of us in the Shenandoah mountains. March 19,2012 is the day she asked me to go steady!

What they love most about each other:

Shawnee: The first thing I noticed about Robyn was her incredible smile. It is very sincere and her eyes light up when she is truly happy, which I hope will be for many years to come with me. My favorite thing about her is that she can make me laugh in any circumstance. It’s impossible to have a bad day when she is around. She makes me incredibly happy.

Robyn: Shawnee’s eyes! They grabbed me the first time I saw her. What I love the most about Shawnee? What’s not to love!? She is the kindest, gentlest and most honest person I know. From the very beginning I have felt invincible with her. I felt no matter what life throws at us we have the strength to go through it together. For the first time in my life I saw true beauty; inside and out!
