Wendy waited nervously by the arrivals gate, not fully believing that she was about to meet Brian in person. In real life person. They’d been talking online for a few months, and Wendy was sure that she’d somehow caught one of the last truly wonderful guys out there. Spend five minutes with Wendy and you’ll see why Brian was so quick to scoop her up—she is a kind, sweet-hearted beauty who absolutely radiates when she’s near Brian. Spend five minutes with Brian and you’ll see why Wendy feels so incredibly lucky—he is wonderfully thoughtful, an incredible father, and every bit as kind as Wendy. He looks at her and you can just imagine the love that filled his heart as he walked toward her through that very first arrivals gate.
And ever since that first meeting, their love continued to grow—despite the distance. Brian lives in Nebraska, and Wendy calls D.C. her home. So, many weekend plans involved flights to and from, sharing each others’ lives and learning each others’ worlds. And every time they left each other at the departures gate, it got just a little harder. So Brian decided he didn’t want to walk through another departure gate without Wendy at his side, and Wendy made him the happiest man in the world when she responded with a resounding YES as Brian knelt in front of her and slid the (incredibly beautiful) ring on her finger!
When we were planning for their session, Wendy mentioned that she’d love to take some photos at Reagan Airport, since it’s been such an important location in their relationship: where they first met and where they’ve had many an emotional moment since. I was completely on board. I love just about everything about Reagan as it is, but add a sweet love story and an incredible couple and I am in heaven! We spent an evening walking through Reagan’s main concourse exploring all of its nooks and crannies. Brian’s adorable and sweet kids were also visiting for the weekend and got to join us! Enjoy some of my favorites from their incredible session!
So much JOY in these two!
It was right about here that I realized Wendy could be Amy Adam’s twin! Gosh, girl, you’re stunning!
Love love love Reagan’s architecture… Doesn’t hurt that it’s yellow, of course :)
Could y’all be any more good looking??
Love it, Brian!
Light-filled hallways all day long…
And now for the real cuteness! Look at these two!
A few tickles and giggles :)
Oh, yeah, about that ring… hello gorgeous!
Wendy and Brian, I just love your love.
