Dan and Jackie- A Manassas Battlefield Engagement Session

If you've never been to Elizabethtown College (aka E-Town), it's a SMALL school. There are under 2,500 undergrads. Yes, it's THAT SMALL. It is actually SMALLER than my high school! With a school that size you pretty much know everyone.During my Freshmen year, I met Dan. We had some classes together, and we seemed to hang out with the same hooligans. Sometime during Dan's college experience, he met Jackie. For a while, they would find "reasons" to spend time together. They'd go to the library and attempt to work on things for class, but nothing ever seemed to get accomplished. After a lot of awkward moments, they FINALLY started dating. Then last September, Dan proposed to Jackie on the beach in Ocean City, NJ. Dan and Jackie decided they wanted to travel to the Virginia area for their engagement shoot. Dan, Jackie, my Voice Activated Lightstand (Rich Kessler), and I went into Old Town Manassas and then to Manassas Battlefield. We had a lot of fun and a lot of laughs. We seemed to luck out with the thunder storms, and it only rained while we were driving between locations. Jackie and Dan- I CANNOT WAIT for your wedding this September! It's going to be great spending the day with the two of you! And a HUGE thank you to Rich for helping me navigate and rocking the lights!
