Aleshia and Blake are such a cool couple and getting to know them has been a lot of fun. Quick to laugh and easy going they immediately put you at ease. I first met Aleshia when I was photographing her sister’s wedding so when she contacted me about her wedding I was really excited to be able to work with such a wonderful family once again. Being trusted to photograph another sister of this family means a lot to me. Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement session as well as their engagement story in their own words!

“I proposed to Aleshia at the Richmond Heart Ball. The theme for the heart ball this year was Fortune of the Heart and had lots of Asian influenced decorations. Her mother had opened a fortuned cookie at the table and with it being so dark in the ball she was having difficulty reading the fortune. I told her I would read it for her and when she gave it to me I turned to Aleshia and said “It says will you marry me?”.”

    Love the photos and, of course, the subject! You guys look so very happy. Can't wait to help y'all celebrate. In some of the pictures, I swear Blake, you look like Robin Williams.
