If you happen to be a gym go-er, then you know how important it is to find a great swolemate. Whether you need a little extra push to get through one last rep or a some accountability to make sure you’re putting in enough gym time, a swolemate is there through thick and thin.
Lucky for Rane and Alexis, they are about to have their swolemate on lockdown forever.
It all began when Rane picked up his life in Delaware, where he grew up, and decided to move to Virginia to start a new personal training job. Little did he know when he walked into the gym on his first day of work that he would also be walking towards love of his life. Because, as fate would have it, Lex had also been working as a trainer at that very same gym. Of course Rane noticed Lex right away. How couldn’t he with her bright hair, colorful tattoos, and vibrant personality to match? And Lex noticed Rane, too. How couldn’t she with his kind smile, sweet demeanor and incredible work ethic? Never one to sit around and wait, Lex approached Rane and made the first move. And now, a year and a half later, they are planning the rest of their lives with their best friend and biggest encourager.
For their engagement session, I knew we needed to do something a little bit out-of-the-ordinary for such a pair as rad as these two. So we headed downtown to DC’s National Portrait Gallery to explore around the museum before sneaking down to the National Mall at sunset. It was entirely too much fun shooting with all of the different works of art that were just as colorful and bright as Lex and Rane are. Y’all are going to fall HARD for these two and their fun-loving spirits. Not to mention Lex’s incredible purple hair! Enjoy, my friends!
