Rob & Michele | Old Town Alexandria, Virginia Engagement Photographer

Michele and I met back in … 2008?? I cannot quite remember the year, but it has been a while!! We were both in the MRDs as piccolo players (GO DUKES!!!) and I remember making the connection with her right off the bat when we realized our hometowns weren’t that far away from each other….
