Hello, stunning bride! How gorgeous is Vada? This couple is a 10/10 for so many reasons. I’m so thrilled to be sharing their elegant sunrise engagement session with you all!
Vada found me through a sweet friend, Lis, who sent her my way right as she was trying to decide on a photographer for her wedding (thanks, Lis!!). As soon as we had our first conversation, I knew we were a great fit for photography!
So, a little bit about this couple: Vada & Hal embody elegance and class. From the first time I met them, it was obvious that they both had incredible taste (in more ways than one . . . they ordered tacos and mussels at their consultation! Yes, please!)! Their style is timeless and classy, and their relationship is gentle and sweet! They met in the early spring, and their whirlwind romance led them to an engagement in the summer and an upcoming wedding in March 2018!
One thing I really love about Hal & Vada is they seem to have an awesome friendship. They enjoy exploring D.C. together, they laugh together and they even took an impromptu trip to New York City when Vada one the lottery for Hamilton tickets (SO jealous!). Photographing them as a couple was so easy because they are so comfortable together! I can’t wait for their wedding in Dallas this spring!
Without further ado, Hal & Vada!
Monument change! Vada and Hal couldn’t decide on one, so we visited the Lincoln Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial!
So excited for the wedding this spring!!
