I was so happy to finally meet Maria and Zac in person for their session! We had “met” over FaceTime during their wedding consultation so it was great to get to know each other in person. Since Southwest Virginia has been in a bit of a monsoon season as of late, I was worried we would have to reschedule. I was excited when they decided to go for it! We embraced a rainy day session! We made the most of it and I think it turned out so fun!

Maria and Zac were the sweetest. They have such a clear adoration of one another and level of mutual respect and love that it shows without any effort. Just being with them for an hour made it clear that these two are meant to be married! Maria told me how they first met: “We first met in high school. We both knew of each other but we didn’t really meet until he became friends with my twin brother and started coming over to the house to hang out. Not too long after that we became friends and developed secret crushes for each other.” Too sweet!

I asked them to tell me who popped the question and this is what Maria shared, “Zac proposed when we were on a cruise to Mexico. It was the formal night so we were all dressed up. After dinner our friends and we decided we would meet at the back of the ship to take pictures at sunset. We all made our way there and Zac and I were the last to arrive. We began taking pictures and one of our friends suggested we turn around so she could take some with us looking out over the water. I thought that was a great idea so we turned around. Zac began whispering to me about how much I meant to him and how much he loved me and that he never wanted to live a day without me by his side. I turned my gaze from the water to meet his eyes but when I did he was down on one knee with the ring in his hand. And then we all know what happened next :)!” So perfect!

They love to spend time with each other. Zac and Maria love to watch Netflix and play with their dog Asher. When they have the time they also love to kayak, walk, hike, fish, and anything else outdoors. Anything to get away for a few hours! Maria and Zac are so excited to finally be getting married. They are not only excited for the actual wedding, but also for this wonderful life that they have started together!

Maria told me that the most awesome thing about Zac is the way he loves her and his desire to grow together. She also loves how he has a strong determination to do anything and everything he sets his mind to accomplish. Zac loves many things about Maria but most would be how much she cares and how passionate she is with everything she does. Now doesn’t that sound like a perfect match? Ha!

Okay! I think you all have heard enough from me! I want to share more photos from our rainy day session!
