Kristin and Dave | Sky Meadows Engagement

He was the boy upstairs. As Kristin and her family moved her things into her new apartment just before her sophomore year at Virginia Tech, she had no idea that the boy who lived upstairs would one day ask her to marry him, that one day she would realize that he was the love of her life. But isn’t that how it always goes?

It didn’t take long for Kristin and Dave to become friends, but it took a little longer before they jumped into the dating game. Though once they did, there was no looking back. Even as Dave graduated and moved to New Jersey for his job, the distance between them wasn’t an obstacle they couldn’t overcome. And after Kristin finished her final year and spent some time working in DC, she decided that it was time to be a little closer and share a state again. Meanwhile, Dave was hoping that Kristin would want to share more than a state, but maybe also a last name. So with one of the most beautiful rings in hand (That he picked out himself! Always impressed!), Dave asked Kristin to spend the rest of their lives together. And giddily and without hesitation, Kristin said yes.

I was so excited to finally meet Kristin and Dave at their engagement session, especially when they decided on Sky Meadows State Park as their location! Rustic barns, rolling Virginia hills… it doesn’t get much better! We wandered the park and Kristin even took a bit of a mini-hike in heels for which I am SO grateful—those shots were totally worth it ;) Enjoy a peek at their gorgeous session, and get excited for their wedding shindig in just under eight months! I know I am!
