I honestly don’t know where to start this post. I have known Anna for 10 years!!! TEN YEARS! Seriously, I don’t know how it’s been that long. I first met her the summer before our freshman year at Penn State. We both grew up near Frederick, MD and the local PSU Alumni Association hosted a picnic where incoming students could meet before making the trip to campus. Being the ONLY person from my high school going to main campus, I went to the picnic and was so happy to have met Anna! We met up as soon as school started and became really close our freshman year! It was wonderful. Over the years we’ve kept in touch and when she got engaged last summer I was so happy for her! I was also thrilled that she asked me to photograph her wedding!!
I hadn’t met Mario prior to their engagement shoot on Sunday. I knew, however, that if he was the perfect match for Anna he would highlight her goofy side and just completely light her up (without even trying). When they got out of car it took me approximately 0.25 seconds to realize this was the case! These two are a match made in heaven! I am so happy to see my friend so happy and in love!
We spent Sunday morning in Leesburg, VA. We met at Red Rock Overlook and ended the shoot in the Historic Downtown District. It was SO much fun! I had a great time catching up with Anna, meeting Mario and celebrating their engagement! I am so excited for October!!
