A few months ago, I did a model call looking for a couple to photograph at Roan mountain. I had the day off, no kids! It was the perfect opportunity to just photograph a couple for fun! I ended up getting like 15 emails from all different couples. Christina + Maxwell were one of them. The other photographer and I had actually picked a different couple and then we received an email from Maxwell… and they won our hearts! Here is just a SHORT snippet of that email…
“In the beginning of our relationship, we made a pact (which at the time, I thought was crazy undoable); to see each other at least once a month regardless of schedule or cost or anything else that would come up in our own individual lives. We stuck by that and I believe I fell in love with her more every single day from thousands of miles away than most couples who live together do.
Her overwhelming and unwavering support, patience, understanding and passion towards my military career is what has TRULY kept us strong in the most challenging of times. “
Being a veteran myself, I fell in love with them. Despite a few rescheduling due to his military orders and weather, and babysitter complications, we were finally able to shoot! It was crazy cold, and windy and wet! But these are hands down, some of my FAVORITE photos.
I want to thank Maxwell for his service. And to Christina… you Army wives don’t get enough credit. The sitting around and waiting for plans to change, for phone calls, for everything involved with being a military spouse… thank you for being so supportive! I wish you two the best. I can’t wait to see your wedding photos! You are going to be SO GORGEOUS in that dress!!
