Laura and James- An Old Town Alexandria Engagement Session

Wednesday evening, I met up with James and Laura for their engagement session in Old Town Alexandria here in Virginia.They're another online dating success story like Matt and Jennie. Laura joined the online dating scene unsure of what to expect. When Laura and James went on the first date, they knew. Everything just seemed to click. They are getting married in TWO WEEKS! Laura and James- Thank you so much for coming out and being absolutely amazing! I cannot wait for your wedding!!
