Monica & Cedric

June 3, 2013

There are times in your life when you meet people and you can feel fate working it’s magic, you just know that they were destined to walk into your life at the very moment it happens. The night I met Monica and Cedric was one of those moments. I walked into Starbucks where we arranged our first meeting and was instantly enthralled in conversations of faith, family, and most importantly Monica and Cedric’s love for one another. Love that is so apparent in their images below.

Cedric proposed to Monica at Richmond’s iconic Canal Walk. An urban engagement session at what they have affectionately deemed their “spot” was perfect for this amazingly faithful couple.
