Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles Wedding | Washington, D.C Wedding Photographer | Maggie + AJ

I can't begin to tell you how much I love Maggie and AJ.  After being around this family again I may want to be adopted into Maggie's family!  I first met Maggie when I photographed her sister Kathryn's wedding and she was a bridesmaid so when Maggie and AJ asked me to photograph their day I was so thrilled.  Being around Maggie and AJ was like being around friends I had known for years.  Maggie and I would text a lot about her ideas and how she wanted her day to go.  I really wanted their day to be perfect.  These two are one of the most genuine, authentic and kind couples I know and their wedding was perfect.  

We started the day with a first look in the garden area....I have to admit I got teary eyed a couple times during their wedding but especially when AJ first saw Maggie.  She looked so beautiful and AJ's reaction to when he saw Maggie for the first time was a perfect representation of how much he loves her.    

AJ and Maggie have that fairytale story that you see in movies.  That first love became their ever after! I don't think I have met two people who are so perfect for each other.  You can just tell how much AJ loves Maggie and they just have this amazing bond.  

Their Story: 

We've known each other since 4th grade but didn't start dating until sophomore year of High School.  We started dating November 20, 2007.  AJ proposed in the Outer Banks, NC with friends around.  The girls brought me to get ice cream while the guys set up.  We came back and I knew something was up because everyone was ignoring me.  AJ was running around and acting weird and asked if we wanted to go to the beach and take pictures.  We walked down to the beach where there was a small side table that he had made me for my 21st birthday that had my sorority letters on it and in the drawer of the desk it says...To love you is to love life...on the table was a tablet.  He pressed play and it was our song that we loved and it displayed pictures of us throughout our relationship, videos of family members wishing us the happiest of times.  He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him
