Amanda & Alex’s East Beach Engagement Portraits

The question we all want an answer too. Does Tinder actually work? It sure does! In fact, swiping right was how our summer couple Amanda and Alex were able to fall in love. The best part? Our leading lady Danielle met up with Amanda & Alex for their sunny East Beach Engagement Portraits in Virginia Beach VA!

We can not wait for their summery June wedding at the Hermitage Museum & Gardens in Norfolk next year! I mean look at that smile – Amanda could not contain the love she felt for Alex! Pure joy & happiness!

How They Met

After swiping right on Tinder, Amanda & Alex had their first date at a restaurant bar in Dayton, Ohio. It was there that they shared their mutual love of country music & bluegrass. Little do they know the DeLine team can throw down on the dance floor! Start playing Copper Head Road and some Luke Bryan and it’s game over!

The Proposal

For their Anniversary, Amanda & Alex decided to hike through the Shenandoah. After their hike, Amanda & Alex got comfortable, poured some wine in their cabin and began to exchange their anniversary gifts. Little did she know one of those gifts would be her engagement ring! Could have been the wine or the mountain esthetic but she, of course, said YES!

After living in the Virginia Beach area for four years, Amanda and Alex knew that they just had to incorporate the beach. So after some photos around the charming neighborhood of East Beach, we had to catch the sunset on the beach! Where Amanda & Alex laughed all day playing in the sand, getting piggy back rides and, stealing kisses! I mean it’s hard not to when you’re just having fun.
