Emily and Tyler: Richmond VA Engagement Photography

“Beebeebeep… beebeebeep…” 5:30 am was here again along with the “most annoying possible” alarm tone on my cell phone.  I knew that in a half hour Emily would be waiting for me at our designated corner of the intramural field and we’d begin our groggy run to the gym to work out together.  I was the lucky one in our workout-buddy system; my buddy was there five minutes early with full resolve to give this workout her all.  She got the buddy who would gladly have talked her into skipping this madness and hitting Coldstone instead (if only it were open at 6am).

From the first time we met in a video art class our sophomore year at University of Richmond, I could tell that Emily had a real gentleness to her.  Not that she didn’t also have a strong and fierce side (playing Division 1 soccer throughout most of college!), but off the field she was such a steady, calm presence–your heart could really be at ease with her as a friend.  Throughout endless conversations about life and love and God and everything in between, I came to the realization that whoever gets Emily is going to be one LUCKY man.  She is a serious gem.  Fast forward about four years after graduation and our groggy morning workouts to a phone call I get with Emily… “I’m getting married!”  We planned a reunion/engagement session on our campus in Richmond and as I looked forward to re-connecting I wondered. . . could this guy be good enough for Emily?  Really?  I mean, she had gone on and on about how genuinely amazing he was, but still I couldn’t picture anyone good enough for her.  When I met up with the two of them in early June, I tried to hide my undertones of “you hurt my friend, I keel you;” after all, I did trust her judgement.  It didn’t take long after meeting Tyler till my radar came down and I really enjoyed watching them together–it was like they had always known each other.  Tyler is so strong and confident in his love for Emily!  He is a friend and protector to her and treats her with the respect and tenderness that she deserves to surround her for the rest of her life.  I loved watching them interact and realizing that, yes, Emily was right and I dare say I even think he deserves her 🙂

Congratulations, Emily and Tyler!  I am so thankful that you found each other and I can’t wait for your wedding in April!
