There are experiences in life that change you, and bring you closer to those who have been there as well. It could be something as simple as going to the same school, attending the same event, or signing up to work at the same job. For Holly and Dustin it was the latter. They didn’t actually meet while working at Summer’s Best 2 Weeks, but when they crossed paths in church a few years later that shared experience opened up the doors to get to know each other. They continued to get to know each other, started dating and are now planning their wedding.
Holly and Dustin are the fourth couple out of a group of friends I’ve been privileged to get to know and work with… and I’ve started to feel like I’m friends with all of them. It is so fun to photograph a wedding and see some of the same people, and I’m always sad when everyone in the group is married and the reunions stop.
We had a chance to take these pictures while I visited DC last week, and they decided to trade in the look of the city for a scenic country location instead. It was a quintessential Virginia location and really made me miss the state – it’s so beautiful especially at this time of year. So, enjoy looking back with me at the gorgeous countryside and beautiful relationship of Holly + Dustin.
