Tyler & Julia did such an incredible job the other day at their engagement session at Valley Green Inn in Philadelphia! I (Josiah) went to high school with Julia and we haven’t seen each other since graduation, so it was really great to catch up with her. We’re so happy for her and Tyler, that they found one another and are about to take the leap into marriage! It really doesn’t seem all that long ago that we were sitting in the same social studies class freshmen year, but that was nearly 10 years ago! Insane!
Anyway, we loved spending time with these two and are so excited for their future together! They were all laughs, and while they might’ve been a little nervous, they did a fantastic job! They were naturals in front of the camera. I joked that I was able to train Tyler because after 20 minutes, he completely nailed the poses! It was so much fun watching them interact and giggle with one another.
We got up that Saturday morning, January 28, 2017, to head to our Alma Mater, Bethany College, to celebrate one of our mutual friend’s comprehensive exam completion. As it was a blisteringly cold January day, we had to park at the end of campus and begrudgingly walk through the weather. We congratulated our friend and decided to head home. Almost to our car and at the center of campus there is a beautiful water fountain. Walking past the fountain, Tyler stopped and that’s when he said, “Do you wanna marry me?” From that moment, September 1, 2018 will be the first day of the rest of our lives together.
Thanks so much for trusting us with your photos! We loved spending every second with you both and cannot wait for your wedding next year at Aldie Mansion!! It’s going to be such a fun time and we’re excited to spend even more time with you both at the wedding! Until then, we hope you enjoy some of our favorites from your engagement session!
