Engagement: Val & Carmen

Hello, dear readers! Maggie here, writing to say that I’m particularly excited about today’s post because, in addition to being an adorable couple, both of these lovely humans are writers! I’ve actually been a fan of Carmen’s work for several years now, and when she shared a few of her engagement photos on Twitter, I plucked up the courage to message her to ask about submitting to A Bicycle Built for Two. She said yes, and in record time, the photos were in our inbox!

Val & Carmen’s engagement shoot was at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, one of the couple’s favorite spots and, according to Carmen, one of the first places they went together when they moved to Philly. I’ve never been, but after seeing these photos, I think it’s fair to say Val & Carmen have great taste in gorgeous places: Val proposed in March 2015 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, at the fountain from the Monastery of Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa.

Have a minute? After you peruse these beautiful photos, I highly recommend heading on over to Val’s and Carmen’s websites to check out some of their work. Val writes YA and is working on a novel; Carmen has a book of wonderfully scary, seductive, fierce, feminist stories coming out next year—and both of them have pieces online for your reading enjoyment!
