They went on a walk one evening and as they strolled, the conversation turned to the most romantic of topics: storm water management. Okay, fine, so maybe it’s not normally a subject that sets girls swooning and hearts a-flutter, but as a civil engineer, it is an area of Darrell’s expertise. His passion for his job showed as he talked about why it matters and how it works, in a language Noemi understood. And that, she confessed, that little moment of sharing life and knowledge and passions, was when Noemi knew she loved Darrell.
And if you’re around this pair for more than a moment, you’ll see that love on full display for all to see. And let me tell you, it is a wonderful, beautiful, joyful thing! Darrell can’t look at Noemi without a huge grin creeping over his face, and the way Noemi relaxes when she’s wrapped up in Darrell’s arms makes it seem like she was meant to fit there forever. Together, these two have so much love and laughter that it can’t help but spill over to the people around them.
We explored Manassas Battlefield in search of the perfect fall setting, and I’d say we pretty much hit the jackpot. Between the red orange trees and the golden light that followed us everywhere, autumn shows up in these images full force. How I wish we could keep this lovely light all year long! Enjoy a few of my favorites from Noemi and Darrell’s engagement session! (And long live fall!)
Love this light, love this location, love these two!
Two words for y’all: maximum adorability. (Yup, made that one up)
I think I could photograph at the Battlefields forever and never get sick of it. So many beautiful spots and always the best light!
Dangit you two look good!!
Oh, golden hour…
How about the beautiful etching in Noemi’s ring??
Congratulations, Noemi and Darrell!!
