You complete me…
When Hope & Dom met during Hope’s freshman year of college, she realized that Dom had a lot of things that she didn’t. As she told us in her client interview, “We really balance each other out… Dom is the kindest and most patient man I know”.
After dating through college, Dom proposed at Maymont Park in Richmond. “He set up his camera to take pictures of us (which we’ve never done before in the 3 years of us being together, so I KNEW something was up) – but he set up and tore down 4 different times before he proposed. I was lowkey about to strangle him because I’m not a patient person, but he proposed at the 4th location so all is well”.
We shot Hope & Dom’s engagement session in downtown Lynchburg (where the couple went to college and would also be getting married). The little hidden oasis’ our city provides created a great backdrop to showcase their love.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, we LOVE the Blue Ridge Parkway. There’s a reason it’s one of our go-to locations. It makes for gorgeous photos. And Hope’s bridal portraits were no exception. And who can say no to a bride who is willing to take a risk to get the perfect shot?
Hope & Dom were married in November of 2019 at Tresca on 8th. The revitalized warehouse space turned wedding venue made for an intimate location for their 160-person guest list.
For this wedding, the couple didn’t want to have a first look. But they did have letters they wanted to share with each other before the ceremony.
One of our favorite moments of this wedding was the foot-washing ceremony.
These college sweethearts radiated love in every picture we shot.
Congrats Hope & Dom!
