I photographed Jacquie and Ryan's engagement photos two years ago near First Landing in Virginia Beach. When we met, I knew instantly how much I liked them both. Their excitement for their upcoming wedding that June radiated from them, but they have such a calmness about their being - about their relationship - that really felt right. I could tell that in one another, they had found a home.
It's two years later and although I've watched them travel and grow together on Instagram, to see them again and feel the shift in the dynamic of their relationship was beautiful. Now, they've actually got a home together - the coziest studio apartment I've ever seen, complete with a loft bed high up above their living space. It's the perfect place for any young couple to start their journey growing together and it suits them so well.
I was lucky that they allowed me into their home one bright and chilly day to hang out, drink some tea, and photograph where they are right now.
