Oh, where do I even start with these two?
By the time their engagement session got here, I was head over heels with Lindsey + Clay and we hadn't even met yet!! Lindsey is one PERFECT bride and is SO detailed with everything she does! We still have a few months till their wedding and almost everything in the wedding planning process is done for them! I love that! Oh, and don't even get me started on their adorable Save The Dates that they sent out!! They were MAGNETS!! WHAT?! SO CUTE!! They live all the way in ILLINOIS and drove a good 10-11 hours to Virginia for the engagement session and some much-needed wedding planning!!
For their engagement session, we decided to take it back all the way to where it all began with these two.. at Gifford Hall. Lindsey + Clay just knew it was fate for them to be together. Why? Because they BOTH had planned on going to other schools (Clay= UNC & Lindsey= Virginia Tech) but there were other plans set in place for the two of them. They both ended up at James Madison University their freshman year of college in the SAME dorm room. How much better could it get?! Later on during college after the two of them finally realized how much they actually liked each other, Clay got the nerve to ask this beautiful woman out. They grabbed coffee early one morning at 7:30AM BEFORE his class! That's a big deal because they were college students. Getting up out of bed early on a school day just does NOT happen for something that isn't important or life threatening.
Almost 9 nine years later, here we are today with them planning a wedding and getting ready to tie the knot this October 10th back where it started in Virginia! To celebrate their engagement, we just had to bring them back to JMU and visit all of their favorite spots on campus! Including the precious kissing rock, of course!! How could we resist?!
Spending the day with Lindsey + Clay at James Madison University was unforgettable! Especially the last set of photos that we did. Why? Because a lovely police officer was spying on us and even used his MICROPHONE to talk to them and pretend he was posing them! FUNNIEST thing that's ever happened at an engagement session to this day. I was dying!!
Congratulations you two!! I can't wait for your wedding!
