Jay and I had such a great time meeting Becca and Thomas in Richmond Virginia for their engagement session!  We started at Libby Hill Park (which I had never been to before), on the coldest day of the year…then we moved to Tredegar to catch the sunset with the city in the background!  You would have never known it was cold!  Becca and Thomas were excellent at pretending to be warm!!  They are celebrating their 5th anniversary this December, but met when they were students at the University of Richmond.  I absolutely love how easy these two just BE with one another.  You can tell they have been together for awhile because they just FIT!  And their smiles when they look at one another are so genuine and loving.  It made me so full of happiness for them!  I can’t wait for their wedding in 2017!  I know it is going to be a blast!!
