As a wedding photographer, one of my favorite things about a wedding day is the love and joy that overflows from the couple out to all of their guests. Maybe it’s those first few hours of being husband and wife, maybe its seeing months of planning come together into a magical day, or maybe it’s being surrounded by all of your favorite people, but there’s just nothing quite like it. Cue: Nina and Matt. These two met while standing by the side of two of their best friends on their wedding day, and the rest is history. Matt even joked that when he met Nina that weekend, “she wouldn’t leave me alone!” Though, I have a sneaking suspicion that he didn’t mind it one bit!
And now it’s Matt and Nina’s turn to plan their own love-filled day. Matt pulled off one of the most amazing surprise proposals—on Nina’s birthday, no less—and she admits that she never saw it coming. Two weeks before the day, he wrapped up a big box and “hid” it on a book shelf where Nina thought she wasn’t supposed to see it. In her excitement to know what was wrapped up in that box, she never anticipated that Matt would actually be giving her a much smaller—and way more exciting—gift when he asked her to spend the rest of her life with him.
I had a blast last Friday wandering around with Matt and Nina in downtown Winchester—the hidden gem of cuteness and the place where Matt and Nina went for many of their first dates! They are incredibly kind, sweet and fun people, and I just loved getting to see them be themselves in front of my lens! I absolutely can’t wait for April when these two tie the knot! You guys ready to have your heart melted? Enjoy!
The light in Winchester was just amazing, and the weather was perfect for an evening of engagement photos!
Holy. Smokes. You two. Absolutely gorgeous!
Wow wow WOW, Nina!!
How cool is this old house in Winchester? I kept saying that it felt like we’d gone to Charleston!
Matt!! So much better than Blue Steel! ;)
Such an absolute favorite!
Winchester or Charleston? You decide!
That look is fierce, Nina! I can’t wait to see you as a bride!
Honestly, I just can’t handle how good looking y’all are!
