There is a spark between these two that is undeniable! Whenever Nathan looks at Alyssa, I melt. (Just wait. You will too!) When we started planning this Manassas Battlefield engagement session, I was pumped to frolic in the tall grasses! I just love the beautiful rolling hills with the grasses waving in the breeze. Well… turns out all the grasses had been cut!! But I am so thankful that Alyssa and Nathan were up for a little bit of an adventure to create these EPIC portraits! They even trudged through a muddy riverbank!! And it was so worth it!
Alyssa and Nathan met in Australia on a mission trip. Nathan happened to sit next to Alyssa on the bus, and they spent over 12 hours talking! How romantic!! They couldn’t start dating until they arrived back in the United States, but soon realized that they wanted to make it work long distance! Ever since they have lived in different cities and have grown closer and more in love! That story is a huge testament to how much they love each other!
The week before Nathan proposed, he got a call about Alyssa’s ring. The diamond was cracked, so the jeweler needed to remake the ring! Can you imagine that last minute hustle?! So, they rushed to order the new ring to get it to Nathan by that Friday. While Nathan was on his way to Virginia Tech to propose, he found out that the ring was not ready yet! So he had to quickly change all the plans, tell her friends about the plan change, and get Alyssa’s friend to pick up the ring for him the following day!
In the end, it all worked out! Alyssa was so surprised and the ring was perfect!!
Alyssa and Nathan, I am so honored to be a part of your day! I just loved your engagement session at Manassas Battlefield! You two are so sweet together, and I hope you enjoy my favorites!!
