Karina + Melvin | Canal Walk Engagement | Richmond, VA

Canal Walk | Short Pump Engagement Session | Richmond, Virginia Wedding Photographer

From the moment that I read Karina's first email to me, I was so excited to work with her and Melvin.  They are both creative, fun, and chill and I knew that their wedding would be the same.  In the next couple weeks they'll be getting married at the Historic Polegreen Church, so keep a look out for that one.

This is what Karina wrote me in that first email -

"Melvin and I are both artist. He is a rapper and I sing and act (I can also paint a mean picture under guidance of one of those wine and paint parties...seriously I painted an ostrich last week and not to toot my own horn but I'm pretty sure I can make like 15 dollars off of it). We met at Wawa, so romantic, on our way to a party. How perfect for all the stars to align for us both to stop at the same Wawa and then both show up to the same party amirght? Anyway he tried to shoot his shot at Wawa but I had other goals that night, when I saw him at the party he was just hanging out alone so I went to ask him where some mutual friends had gone and we ended up talking all night. He added me on fb the next morning and so blossomed this SIX year (in February) adventure. He proposed to me 2ish years ago by writing me a song."

We met up for tacos at Casa del Barco and then walked around trying to be awkward and serious but failed miserably in the process.
