John & Maddie - Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Engagement Session

I'm so excited to share this engagement session on the blog today! I had so much fun at this session, laughing with these two. I met Maddie at a bridal show I was a vendor at in February and we met up shortly after for a bridal consultation. We got along right away (aka I loved her right away) and she became part of the #mjmpbride family! 

She told me a little bit about her love story with John, her fiance. They met on Tinder and here they are now, getting married! John's a Marine so I didn't get the chance to meet him when I met Maddie as he was on a deployment at the time. So when I finally got to meet him while he was on leave in August, I was beyond excited! They are so cute together and they are HILARIOUS. I was laughing the whole session. 

We started our session at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and after getting lost and detouring and going to a backup plan, we ended our day at the Carillon at Byrd Park! I can't wait for their October wedding in 2019! I know it's going to be one of my favorites next year.

Here's some of my favorites from their engagement session!
