Lions Bridge Engagement Photographer | Newport News, Virginia | Josh & Brittany

All of my couples are so special to me, but these two are even more so because Brittany is Nathan's cousin! I've known Brittany for over 5 years now, and I remember when she first started dating Josh a long time ago. They seemed perfect for each other - she is detail oriented, organized, and kind, while Josh is laid back, relaxed, and has an equally good heart.

As the years have gone by and I've gotten to spend more time with these two, I saw more and more how they were meant to each other. When Josh proposed over Christmas time in front of friends and family, I was not surprised at all - but I am so overwhelmingly happy for them! It means the world to me that I get to photograph not only their engagement session, but their October wedding as well.

Josh and Brittany - I'm so thankful that I can call you family! You have been so kind to Nathan and me, and it's a joy knowing that you will always be in our lives. I can't wait to see you both say "I do" this fall and begin the next step of your journey together. I love you guys, and congratulations!
