Va Beach Engagement Shoot

  • Ken + Jessica | Engaged

of those couples that makes your heart melt.  I’m not being mushy and cheesy, I’m serious. I met Jess and Ken at Rebekah and Matt’s Wedding and my first thought was… “Well if they’re friends with Rebekah and Matt, they are probably awesome people!”… and I was right!
