What a pleasure it was to spend a recent afternoon with Libby and Will for their engagement session. These two are kindness personified and so lovingly supportive of one another. Watching them together, I got the sense of a beautiful future unfolding for them. They share so much…their faith, their values, their love of family (and mutual desire for a family of their own). And they’ve already started on that journey with their one year old Brittany Spaniel called Penny (aka ‘Penny, the girl’! So sweet!).
Will proposed on their year-and-a-half anniversary. He recreated their very first date, taking Libby to dinner at the same restaurant in Colonial Williamsburg, where they sat at the very same table! Afterwards, they strolled down Duke of Gloucester street just as they had 18 months before. But this time Will was very quiet…so quiet that Libby thought he might be upset about something! (She couldn’t have been more wrong!) Finally, she suggested Will take her home, and he obligingly turned around. But they didn’t get far before he overcame his nerves and told her loved her…then got down on one knee in front of Governor’s Palace and popped the question! Suddenly, it all made sense…and there was a beautiful emerald ring on Libby’s finger to boot!
Photographing them was a joy…they are adorable together, very giggly and sweet. Penny’s photogenic side came out in all its glory, too! We had a great time strolling through Waller Mill Park and downtown Williamsburg together. Special thanks to Will’s mom Margaret, who came to the session to help take care of Penny. I wish this growing family all the best and am so happy for them! I can’t wait for their wedding in July!
