I recently met up with Virginia and Devon to photograph their engagement session in Provincetown, MA. Virginia and Devon were a blast to hang out with and I had a ton of fun that evening as we explored Commercial street together and then ended our session for sunset photos at Race Point Beach. We even made a guest appearance at the Squealing Pig bar on Commercial street where we shared beers and conversations with some colorful locals.
Virginia and Devon met each other while working at St. Georges School in Rhode Island. They started off their relationship in the best of ways; as friends and it wasn’t until they both taught for a summer at Camp Laurel, a children’s summer camp in Maine that things started developing into more than a friendship.
They began officially dating later that fall, but Virginia headed off to grad school in Connecticut in the fall of 2014, so they weren’t sure how things were going to work out with a long distance relationship. It became clear pretty quickly that while they certainly didn’t enjoy the distance between them, neither wanted to end things because of it. That fall was probably the moment when they both knew that they both wanted to be together for the long haul.
Both Virginia and Devon described themselves as type A personalities who love organization and order, adventures, nature, their dogs and just generally spending all their time together. One of my favorite questions to ask a couple when I am getting to know them is what they both love about each other because I truly feel like it gives me an insider introspective into their souls.
Devon said: “she loves how driven Virginia is. She is dedicated to everyone she knows and everything she does. I love that she is my personal cheerleader whenever I am trying something new or doing something I am the least bit nervous about. I love that I can count on her for anything. She never disappoints and always has my back.” Virginia says of Devon: “I love that Devon is always able to surprise me. As much as we love to organize and plan things, she somehow manages always to sneak in a surprise here and there that is totally unexpected. I also love that her mantra for life is to try anything twice. She will rarely say no to a new experience; instead she leans into whatever new activity or adventure I encourage us to try and gives it a fair shot.
I had the best time getting to know these two beautiful people inside and out and can’t wait for their wedding on September 23rd at St. Mary of the Harbor and the Provincetown Inn in Provincetown, MA. I can’t wait!!
