Hey there! I'm vanessA,
if there’s one thing you need to know about me, it’s that
YOUR LOVE STORY MEANS THE WORLD TO ME
A small city girl living in College Park, MD whose life was CHANGED by love. Seriously—rocked, rumbled, wrecked, repeat. Okay, it might sound dramatic, but my relationship with my now-husband has truly changed my world and soul for the better. We met as teeny babies at age 16 with huge aspirations that would send us worlds apart, but we knew we didn’t want to tackle this life without one another. After high school, we geographically went our separate ways, as my husband joined the Marine Corps and I left to study photography at my dream school in New York City. After 3 long years of long-distance, full of buckets of tears and seemingly endless goodbyes, love conquered all. We were married at age 21 (alright, still babies) and life with our two kitties has been bliss ever since. Shew, I love love.
If there’s anything you need to know about me, it’s that your love story means the world to me. Yes, YOURS. It may look way different than mine, and that’s what makes it SO incredibly special. There is much more to your love story than what is seen on surface level—so many trials and tribulations of life that have strengthened and challenged you to be the couple you are today. I know that joy, and I want to capture it—the joy of knowing that through love, you have grown and blossomed together into something unimaginably beautiful. I can't wait to capture it together.
Okay, cute story lady, but what’s your point?
