Michelle and Wes | Fort Monroe Engagement Photography

From the first moment that Michelle and I met, I knew I found a kindred spirit of sorts! We kept joking how similiar we were in personality, and I'm so glad that hadn't changed over the summer when we met up again for the engagement session. I really try hard to get to know my clients, and so it's doubly wonderful when it's vice versa. Michelle picked up that I am realllllyy into framing when I take a photo, and all throughout our session, she went to town pointing out different framing opportunities at Fort Monroe! :)

The session was my first time meeting the groom, Wes, since he just returned on an Army mid-tour R&R from Iraq. And boy, did that guy have me laughing! ... and the way he doted on Michelle pretty much had me melting the entire session. Oh, and bonus? While we were at Fort Monroe, we got ourselves some history fun facts from the Army man! Jefferson Davis? Yeah, he was imprisoned at Fort Monroe. The moooore you know. ;)

This is a pretty special couple, and it breaks my heart that Michelle will have to have another three months away from her beau now that he has traveled back to Iraq. (So keep him in your thoughts and prayers!)

BUT on an awesome happy note, they are going to have one awesome wedding next March at Fort Eustis! Military sabers will be involved. And I'm pretty enthusiastic about the framing potential there! ;)
