Tis the season… for engagement pictures! After being in this industry for 5 years now I have finally figured out the rhythm of each different season for photographers. A lot of times you hear them talk about how winter (in Virginia at least) is a little bit slower just because its colder outside, but for me that is when I meet with a TON of new clients who got engaged over the holidays, and when March rolls around engagement sessions are in full swing gearing up for all of those spring and summer weddings! I love getting to photograph engagement sessions because its a time for the couple just to relax and have fun and get some great portraits together without all of the chaos of the wedding day! It is the 2 hours that I get to know the couple the best, so that way when I show up on their wedding day I’m more like a friend, just with a really nice camera ;) Brian and Ashley are getting married in just a few short weeks in April and after getting to know them better and seeing how great they are together during their engagement session, I know the wedding is going to be incredible. So get excited to see them back on the blog in about a month! :) For now enjoy lots of favorites from my time with them this past weekend :) … and then we stumbled across some fun props! :) how fun is the floor of the front porch?! thank you Morven Park for being such a beautiful backdrop! one of my favorites :) So we were on our way out of the park and I noticed this open field and how gorgeous the light was pouring over it and I made them pull over on the side of the road and stop! These next few are some of my favorites from our time together.. amazing how just a simple field and pretty light can create this kind of effect! LOVE!seriously could not have asked for more perfect light or a more gorgeous couple!
Can’t wait to see you again in just a few short weeks! :) Happy Thursday!
