Fort Monroe Engagement Session | Hampton Wedding Photographer | Alan + Talika

I feel like I was just in Fort Monroe! (Well ok, that's because I was) Alan and Talika are in a unique position, because Alan is currently serving overseas right now. In fact, he made his way back there just a few days after the engagement session! So when the weather was looking bad the day we planned their shoot, we just had to cross our fingers and hope for the best.

Boy, oh boy, did we get the best! Not only did the rain hold off, but the sun peeked out right at sunset to finish out the session. And that wasn't even the best part! Seeing Alan and Talika together was an absolute joy. They steal in-between moments and fill them with laughter. They speak kindly to each other. They have a hope for the future, and a deep love for one another. Some of my favorite moments were right before and after they kissed because they broke into the biggest smiles possible, so happy to just be together.

Alan and Talika - it was a joy to spend time with you both. I loved that I could sit back and let your relationship speak for itself. I love that there was not one minute of awkwardness. I love that the next time you two will be reunited, you'll be ready to get married. And I can't wait to be there for your special day!
