Venue | Norfolk Pagoda

On the day we were scheduled to do this Norfolk Japanese Pagoda OpLove session – the weather was gross. It wasn’t hard-core raining, it was worse: there was a steady mist coming down all day. It was just enough to be annoying and get everything wet, but not enough to stop us from taking pictures.


So Ryan, Emma and I all braved the elements and set out to capture some portraits for them. The reason we were doing this session is because Ryan is serving our country as an active duty Marine, and is getting ready to deploy. These two complimented each other so well! Get to know a little more about them below…


How you two meet?

We met while I was in college and Ryan was at his first duty station. We spent our first date exploring the national monuments at night!


When did you know he was the one?

I knew Ryan was the one when he promised to do everything in his power to make sure my dad could walk me down the aisle at our wedding.


What are some of your favorite things to do together?

We love hiking and exploring, finding new local restaurants, and watching movies from the comfort of our couch.


If you had to pick a word for your relationship, what would it be?
