Monika + Thomas

We first chatted with Monika and Thomas over FaceTime to discuss wedding photography and we instantly knew we wanted to work with these two! They were living in Norfolk, Va at the time so we started discussing the area and their favorite things to do around there since I myself grew up in Carrollton, Va about 20-30 minutes away! I grew up in the Hampton Roads area so it was awesome being able to speak to a couple who knew the area as well! They were searching for a photographer in the Raleigh-Durham area since they were getting married at the Oaks at Salem in May (...2018 because I'm so behind on actually writing blog posts).

We chatted and learned that these awesome people work in science fields and we knew we were a great fit from there! Monika at the time was finishing up Med School (she's officially now Dr. Tedeschi!!!!) and Thomas was still in P.A. School. Y'all these two were so exciting to talk with and we could not wait for their engagement session back in Norfolk, Va. I may not be very fond of the place I grew up, but I'll make plenty of excuses to go back home and see my family and friends that still live in the area.

Being in the middle of amping up for the busy season, scheduling this engagement session was actually quite difficult with us living 3 hours away! Luckily we found a date that worked for everyone and made it happen Easter weekend! Unfortunately it was chilly and got FREEZING COLD towards the end of the session - Monika, you toughed it out lady and I'm so glad because we got some amazing pictures for you two!! It helped that we ended the session right as it was starting to get unbearably cold!

I am so excited to finally share these engagement pictures! Monika + Thomas killed it!! Just wait until I share their wedding because it was such a beautiful and joy-filled day!
