This VA Beach Engagement Session is one of my favorites! As Hillary & Jason pulled up and got out of their car they looked like they just stepped out of a J.Crew ad.
They both looked great and the marina in VA Beach was perfect for them! As we walked around I just loved getting to know them.
They are both so genuine, down to earth, and easy to talk to.
Jason is a computer engineer and Hillary is in Pharmacy school. These two are so dedicated! And in the mix of that they are beginning to plan for their wedding!
Talk about a lot on their plates! And yet they are both so calm and relaxed that it was refreshing to be around them!
I just love hearing proposal stories. And this proposal was just so sweet I had to share!
I had just completed finals from my 3rd semester of pharmacy school. Jason wanted to take me on a weekend getaway to celebrate so he made reservations at Wintergreen Ski Resort for the weekend. (side note: We had been ring shopping and I knew he was saving for a ring so I told him maybe instead of going away for the weekend maybe we should just go out to a dinner and save some money…but he insisted on going) So we got there and were sitting in the lodge drinking hot chocolate and Jason was already acting sort of weird. We had dinner reservations at a nice restaurant so we went back to the room to get ready. We had a little extra time before dinner and I was exhausted so I ran in the room and jumped on the bed and started looking at maps of the different ski slopes that we were going to ski the next day. Jason was kind of pacing the room acting strange and not interested in looking/planning our day of skiing (which is very unlike him, he loves having a plan). He suddenly started staring at me and walked across the room next to the bed where I was sitting. He had a little speech planned out and completely forgot it so he just spoke from the heart and told me he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. He got down on one knee and proposed to me and of course I said YES!!! It was really romantic and sweet. We got to enjoy our moment all alone and it was so special. Jason knew I didn’t want any sort of public proposal so it was perfect for us. We went to dinner afterwards and shared a bottle of champagne together and celebrated the rest of the weekend with just the two of us 🙂
Luke & I had so much fun with these two! They were such great sports even at our weird requests!
Thank-You Hillary & Jason for a great time and we hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
