This is Vanessa and Justin. These two met online and fostered their love across two state lines and many mountains and deserts and plains. Vanessa is from Maple Valley, WA and Justin is from Bearmouth, MT - Spokane just happened to be their place to see each other in between and where Justin proposed to Vanessa earlier this Spring.
Vanessa is the best friend of one of my best friend's cousins (truly not as complicated as it sounds, we just have a connection!) And I was absolutely thrilled when she contacted me about doing engagement photos in the city they were engaged in. Bob and I absolutely adore this couple. During our session in the Rose Garden in Manito Park and our dinner together afterward, we got to learn about their love for God and each other and how all the details of their big day were coming together perfectly. We will be cheering them on from afar as they are married in the mountains just outside of Missoula this coming Saturday!
These two were all smiles with Justin's zany personality and the connection they shared. We are excited to see them grow in their marriage as they make their faith the cornerstone of their relationship together!
