I am always trying to shoot in different locations, trying to make each engagement session unique. So we decided to explore through the science museum at Center in the Square.

How they met: Dave and Margaret were set up by a mutual friend and went on a blind date.

Rachel & Chris - Engagement Session - Roanoke VA

Chris and Rachel met in high school. Rachel was a Junior soccer athlete, Chris was a Senior basketball athlete. Rachel & Chris's sister were good friends.One Myspace click later, they started talking constantly. A few weeks later Chris picked her up from a school function to take her home. On their way, Chris turned down the music and asked, "if I asked you to be my girlfriend, what would you say?" Charming. High school sweethearts we became.

Brooklyn & Bryan met at Radford College through a mutual friend and actually didn’t like each other when they first met. They hung out together a few times, then went separate ways for about a year, until he decided to contact her again which ignited communication between the two for a few months.
