I met up with Lydea and Stephen at the City Market Building (which is one of my favorite places in all of downtown Roanoke). We snapped some photos in that area before heading down to Martin’s Downtown Bar & Grill where their first date took place. While we were in front of Martin’s, a strange man kept insisting that I read numbers off the screen of his phone and standing between us though we were clearly trying to take some photos - the three of us struggled hard not to laugh our butts off and continue with the session. We survived his evil clutches and managed to get some great photos. My favorite shots were at the living wall on the roof of Center in the Square, I’ve been dying to take some photos up there for ages.
Lydea and Stephen love to spend time with family, travel, and wine and beer tastings. Stephen proposed on a snowy overlook of the Blue Ridge Parkway back in November. They’ll be getting married this November in Richmond.
