Its a pretty well known fact that these cold winter months are typically a lot slower for photographers. We run a marathon it feels like March-November, but then get a couple months where it is just too cold and dreary to be outside. Since I’m not shooting as much as I typically would, I was SO excited for Bjorn and Allie’s engagement pictures! Not shooting for a week or two can feel like so long when i’m used to multiple sessions each week, and I was just dying to get a fun couple in front of my camera and do what I love (photographers out there, can i get an amen?!) Bjorn and Allie were willing to brave the cold for a January engagement session, and to everyones delight ended up with a gorgeous 60 DEGREE day! in january! welcome to virginia, where its in the 60’s one day and snowing the next! :) After sitting and talking with Bjorn and Allie during their initial consultation I knew within about 5 minutes that they were a couple I was excited to get to know better, and I’m already so excited for their July wedding! 2012 is going to be a good year, friends :) Get excited!
Bjorn and Allie, thank you for being so wonderful and making my job so darn easy. Can’t wait to see you both again soon! :) Bjorn said he saved all his best jokes for their session so he could make Allie laugh.. mission accomplished :) perfect morning light: Anyone else look at this picture and instantly think how completely GORGEOUS their kids are going to be?! no? just me? :)
hands down my favorite, i love everything about this next image: Bjorn is a football coach so we wanted to incorporate that in their session some.. buuut i’m pretty sure that tactic on the left is just plain unfair ;)then we headed over to the downtown part of Leesburg for a few more shots. I love all the different textures you can find in a little town like this! LOVE: Okay, I know I said that other black and white one earlier was my favorite.. but this one definitely comes in a VERY close second place:
