    I Want To Tune In!


    I met Heather & Chris in Starbucks at the very beginning of the New Year. She had told me over email that her and Chris were just super goofy & fun people to be around and I instantly clicked with them within 3 minutes of meeting them! My favorite thing about their story was that Chris proposed to Heather with a ring pop as a joke and she believed that was her ACTUAL ring and she was so happy anyways!! She was just happy to be engaged to her very best friend, no matter what!

    Heather and Chris are MY HEROS!! Ok hear me out! They planned out their wedding day in THREE MONTHS which is unheard of and 1 month before their wedding I reached out to Heather asking her how everything was going and she had EVERYTHING nailed down and was coasting in stress-free vibes! Again, my heroes! These two are the cutest together and you can tell that before anything else, they are each others’ best friends!

    Their wedding day at the Cornerstone Chapel in Leesburg was so, so joyful! The highlight of their day could have been their first look for which Chris’ reaction was the BEST! He walked all around Heather taking in her GORGEOUS dress and couldn’t stop telling her how amazing she looked!!! Get you a man that looks at you the way Chris looks at Heather hahaha. The highlight however was in true Heather & Chris fashion, they shotgunned a Monster (Chris converted Heather slightly away from coffee)!! You’ll have to see the pictures! But in all seriousness, their wedding day was so full of so much love among their families and you can tell how much Heather & Chris care for each and every person that was there for their wedding.

    I loved the honor of capturing their big day and can not wait to get them the rest of these images!!
