Proposal Photos at Virginia Tech
Matt put a lot of thought and planning into his super sweet Virginia Tech Duck Pond proposal to his girlfriend Amy! He contacted me a few weeks ago so we could get all the details nailed down. This was extra exciting for me because Amy works in the same college as me at Virginia Tech and is a student in my department and it was by complete coincidence that Matt contacted me, what a small world. When the big day rolled around, I put on my disguise [hoping Amy wouldn't recognize me] and sat under a tree at the Duck Pond pretending to read a book until they arrived. Needless to say after seeing all these happy couple photos, she said yes! Congratulations Matt and Amy, I am so glad I was able to be a part of your surprise proposal.
I have been photographing this family since their daughter was a newborn, I love watching their family grow together and soon they'll be welcoming another sweet baby girl to the family. We met up for their Blacksburg maternity photos at the beautiful Hahn Horticulture Garden at Virginia Tech where we enjoyed the beautiful lush foliage, Koi, and the extra friendly mallard ducks. I made Ali a fuchsia chrysanthemum flower crown to wear for some of her photos, once we were finished using it for the maternity photos, Catherine got to try her hand as a flower child and take it home as a souvenir from her photo shoot. Next we moved on the Virginia Tech Duck Pond where we got a quick few photos before we succumbed to the heat and pizza cravings. I cannot wait to meet their sweet new baby in a few weeks!
I met up with this family at the Duck Pond at Virginia Tech to get some adorable photos for their Christmas Cards. How adorable is this kiddo? I love his chunky cheeks, bald head, and handsome grin so much!
