We had planned to meet Tim and Courtney in Old Town sometime in October in order to capture the gorgeous fall colors and enjoy somewhat warm weather before the very breath of summer sun blew away for good. Because of some conflicts, we had to push back to November. No big deal! I thought, when we planned the date, but as November creeped closer and closer, Mother Nature and I began to butt heads more and more. First she started getting all huffy and puffy, sending wind everywhere and THEN she got a bad attitude, sending rain clouds wherever I went. Quite the drama queen. But thankfully, Mother Nature seems to be out to make amends, as we had some wonderful warm weather and even a few autumn leaves left on the trees for Courtney and Tim’s engagement session.
We spent the afternoon walking around Old Town Alexandria, visiting a few of the places that hold meaning to their relationship—flashbacks to moment in their story. The restaurant where they ate. Their favorite date night, ice cream. The place where Tim asked the most important question of his life, and the place where Courtney said yes. Tim and Courtney are two of the sweetest souls you’ll ever meet, and I couldn’t help but smile as Tim shared the story of their first date in high school, and then looked at Courtney in a way that is surely the same as that first night at the movie theatre all those years ago.
I hope you two enjoy some of the highlights of our afternoon together!
Told you there were still leaves left! We may have hunted down the only ones left in Old Town. You two are just too precious! A piece of history for these two… where they ate the night they got engaged! You know I LOVE that door! A little break for an ice cream date :) Courtney, you’re beautiful! Favorite favorite favorite. And then it all came full circle. Back to the bench where Tim asked Courtney to be his wife…
