These two are getting married in 2022 and I truly cannot wait for their wedding after spending this afternoon with them at their engagement session.  I instantly felt like we had been friends for years…the conversation was so easy and fun.  And these two are so easy and fun!  There was so much laughter between them, and I just loved that so much.  Emily and Josh don’t take each other or life too seriously (just the right amount though, because deeper conversation came easily as well!), and it just made my time with them so enjoyable.  In addition to that, my camera just loved them.  I am totally in love with these photos and their gallery- I believe they truly represent who these two are together, and even though they weren’t sure how they would do in photos, they truly were such naturals!!!  I loved walking around Springfield (on a lucky warm day that still had snow) just getting to know them and learn more about their lives, their families, and how they met.  These two live in Washington DC and have been temporarily home for the last few months, and head back soon and I just wish I could go to DC and hang out with them for a week because I know we would have the BEST time!!
Here are my many top favorites…meet Emily and Josh!

Emily you are so beautiful! I LOVE how Emily’s red sweater popped against the snow! These two both work in the political realm and I’m OBSESSED with their wedding campaign T-shirts!  They truly could not be any cuter! I’m not sure if anyone wants this reminder of what everyone is dealing with right now, but I loved this shot too much not to share!  Emily and Josh, your full gallery is coming soon!!
