Maria & JB’s Charming and Sweet Rainy Day E-session

The rain didn’t stop cute lovebirds Maria and JB from pushing through with their e-session — in fact the weather gave them the perfect chance to use their yellow umbrella, an homage to one of JB’s favorite shows “How I Met Your Mother”. The result? A charmingly adorable e-session full of love and sweet huggy-kissy moments.

We have Matt and Kathy of Mathy Shoots People (see their previously featured work) to thank for this delightful submission. Here’s Kathy with some background info on the couple and shoot:

When we first met these two, we could tell they were pretty sweet on each other. Silly smiles and shy glances – adorable overload. Obviously the original plan was to shoot sans rain. However, the session came and mother nature had quite the little storm in mind. Never ones to give up, we kept under awnings and darted out for some pictures in between downpours. Regardless of how soggy we were, we had a blast with these two! Thanks for being such troopers!

We had always said we wouldn’t shoot in the heavy rain and while that still rings true – we couldn’t have predicted how romantic these pictures would end up being. Something about the rain, them snuggling close under an umbrella and so many stolen kisses.

About the adorable couple, in Maria’s own words:

Right now, JB is in Boston as an engineer and I’m working for a car module supplier near Atlanta. We met each other while in school at Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) in our co-ed service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega (APO). We were friends for about a year before he asked me to go to Ring Dance (which is a big tradition at Tech) and after that we just started hanging out a lot and that led to the beginning of our relationship. We were both hesitant about dating since we were in the same fraternity (it was fun keeping it a secret) but I’m so glad we did because he’s the best thing that’s happened to me 🙂

Maria, on what made their e-session uniquely theirs:

We chose to have our e-session at Quantico because we are getting married there. What made it “us” is the yellow umbrella- JB’s favorite TV show is How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM) and he got me into it too. The plot of HIMYM is the main character, Ted Mosby, telling his kids how he met their mother. Throughout the seasons, small hints are revealed about the future wife and one being her yellow umbrella. We were planning on using the umbrella rain or shine but I guess it worked out that it was raining during our e-session!
