Steve & Lori // Chesapeake, Virginia Engagement Photographer

Steve and Lori's story is as long as it is beautiful. The two have known each other for years - through the ups and downs of life, they remained friends for a very long time. It was only in the past little while, however, that they realized their friendship had blossomed into something so much more than that, and before they knew it they were engaged to be married.

Oftentimes, a couple excels at joking with each other, whereas another is never anything but sweet. Steve and Lori are a hilarious combination of the two - between the laughter and the joking, there is a tone of sweetness and seriousness that demonstrates their deep love for each other. I both laughed harder than I had in awhile at their engagement session and experienced sweet, intimate moments beyond words.

I can only imagine what their wedding day next month - and their lives for the next 50 years and beyond - will be like.
