Bethany and Brandon

How We Met

Bradon and I matched on Tinder in December of 2017 and decided to meet for a date after three days of texting non-stop. We both almost gave up on love before matching with one another, and we’re both so grateful we didn’t!

We instantly connected over a dinner of sushi and Japanese beer, and our love for movies, even though I fell asleep during the middle of ‘Star Wars’ while Brandon awkwardly tried to hold my hand.

We sealed our first date with a kiss, and we’ve been together ever since!

How They Asked

I scheduled photos with one of my favorite local Hampton Roads photographers, Angie McPherson, so Brandon and I could have some nice, non-iPhone photos of us to use for Christmas cards. Little did I know that sneaky Brandon contacted Angie the week of our session and planned his proposal with her! During a change of poses, Brandon got down on one knee, pulled out my ring, and asked me to marry him!
