He is from a small southern town in Georgia. She is from Germany. They met randomly in Scotland and knew instantly that their lives would be forever be intermingled. Meet Edward and Marie, one of the most personable and down to earth couples I’ve had the privilege of photographing. Their entire relationship has been long distance and, if you have ever been in a long distance relationship, you know that it is dreadfully HARD and takes dedication. But this couple made it look so easy. They are going on 18 months now and will become husband and wife this December 29th, 2012. When we were all finally on the same continent, we met at the National Mall to do their engagement portraits. Edward and Marie enjoyed every moment they got to be in the others presence, relishing in the pure joy and excitement at their soon-to-be wedding. Just six more days until they become husband and wife! Stay tuned to see photographs from their wedding!
