While Instagram, Facebook, and blogs make everyone seem like they are living the perfect lives, most are not. More than likely, they have felt lost or are lost. Here's the thing, it is OKAY to feel lost. It’s an indicator to finding the true you and tapping into #ExtremeYou. We didn’t know it 12 years ago starting off at Subway and Kings Dominion as our first jobs, would lead us down a path to owning our own #business. We also didn’t know there would be hurdles along the way. Who knew that a background in defense, real estate, and even building management would lead us here? Not in a million years would we have guessed it. BUT that’s what playing to your strengths does. It shows you untapped potential you never knew that was there before.

It's the 3rd #Monday of #2018 and each one has been refreshing, insightful, and a good reminder for us to stay humble. Here's to 50 more Mondays filled with joy, love, and amazing weddings.
It's a #newyear and some couples are starting the new year #engaged!!!! Like Caroline and Jonathan! Jonathan planned out the best #surpriseproposal, He had reached out to us months in advance. He knew he wanted to make the proposal special for Caroline. They had both met in High School and ended up going to the same college, at the University of Florida! Go Gators!! Jonathan was a few states away planning. What's more, he is in training for the military, so planning schedules was a bit tricky. He planned out when to let family and friends know. He had to wait for breaks to be able to tell them, ask Caroline's father for his blessing, and pick out the ring! He made it happen without Caroline having a clue to the whole scheme! The full proposal is on the blog! Follow the link in our profile to view it! #benandsophiacouples #benandsophiaproposals #bspproposals #bspcouples
Just in the past year, our couples have planned proposals from as far as Canada, Maryland and Florida! We are amazed at the commitment and the love that these couples have for one another. This proposal story at the Jefferson Memorial is an amazing one to add to the list! Want to see how the most romantic proposal is pulled off from miles away? It's all in the blog!

Over the past four years, we’ve traveled to North Carolina, New Jersey, Missouri, and soon Georgia to photograph weddings and sessions. Being based in the middle of Virginia, this requires a bit more planning on our part to make sure our couples get THE best experience. We take extra precautions and make sure to have plans placed ahead of time to photograph destination weddings. If we have weddings within the States, we always pick the option to drive if we can. The main reason is to keep our equipment safe. We have seen one too many videos of airport staff throwing bags against walls and onto trucks that would shatter any delicate item in it. While our cameras are sturdy and we pack them in padding, any brunt force can effect the way a camera works. We make sure to rent a newer rental car that has the space and can handle long distance. Enterprise Rental has been our go to for renting and they have always been amazing! We shared more on how wee photograph destination weddings on the blog.
