When Harry moved to the Richmond area, he created an online dating profile and then didn’t bother to look at it for a long time. One day, he logged into the account again and there was Amy. They had their first date together at Libby Hill Park in the summer and watched fireworks for the Fourth of July.
When I asked Amy what her favorite thing about Harry was, she sited his willingness to serve and told this story: “I lead a volunteer effort at my church (CARITAS) where we house 35 homeless men for a week every year, and after only knowing me for about four months last year, he jumped in and helped me with every aspect of that week without hesitation. I sometimes forget to thank him and he never asks for it, but I am so thankful for his helpful and serving nature.”
I always love when couples bring items that are special to them or that signify who they are. Amy and Harry brought along this little statue that Harry gave to Amy. It depicts a sweet couple praying together on a couch with a verse from Ephesians 4: 2-3 that reads, “Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.” I think as a married woman of ten years there couldn’t be a more perfect sentiment going forward into a new season of life, preparing to become a wife and husband. Congratulations, Harry and Amy. I look forward to photographing your legacy and marriage next year in Richmond.
