Andrea & Derek’s first date was on Valentine’s Day back when they both attended the same high school in Texas. Derek was just old enough to drive and Andrea’s Dad had to make sure she would be safe! After high school, both Andrea and Derek attended Virginia Tech and Derek popped the big question in Germany while Andrea was there for a study abroad program. They both love the New River Valley in the fall so their engagement session happened at the end of October on the Appalachian Trail in Pearisburg, Virginia. It was freezing out but these two kept each other warm!
