Mia and TJ exchanged lifelong vows at the Ospreys at Belmont Bay in Woodbridge, Virginia. I was so pleased to capture the photos and video for their wedding.
Their Love Story
TJ and Mia met a mattress store. She was shopping with her mom during a holiday sale and TJ was the manager of the mattress store, putting on his best salesman pitch. The next day, TJ took a big risk. He called Mia’s mother under the guise of good customer service to get Mia’s phone number. Her mom said no (ha!), but she reluctantly took TJ’s information and shared it with Mia. Mia was shocked, confused, and a little creeped out. But after a little coaxing, she sent TJ a quick text and the rest is history.
Shortly after they went on their first date and the two quickly realized that they were very similar and different simultaneously, with the biggest difference being Mia’s nature to plan everything under the sun and TJ’s spontaneity. This spontaneity came through full force when TJ gathered Mia’s family and friends and bombarded Mia’s company’s all-staff meeting and asked her if she wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. She replied with an excited “yaaasssss” and the planning for their new life together began. The wedding is a true family affair — bringing the big city and southern charm together.
