Dani & Cj || Engagement session at Historic Meems Bottom Covered Bridge

I first met Dani when I traveled to Fort Walton, Florida this past January and instantly loved her! She's so sweet & bubbly, so I was beyond thrilled when she reached out to me to shoot her wedding! Dani & Cj are getting married next spring in the Harrisonburg area, so when they were in Virginia for his sister's wedding, we knew it was the perfect time to take advantage of the time for an engagement session! 

Cj grew up in the Harrisonburg/ New Market area, and suggested doing their engagement session at the Historic Meems Bottom Covered Bridge and the battlefield that has tons of history for him with college. It was a gorgeous location, I could have stayed for hours and hours taking photos of these two! 

Virginia Beach Engagement Session || Sam & Larissa's Back Bay Engagement

I can't believe how gorgeous these end of August evenings have been lately! We should all know by now, I loooooove summer time. The pool days, the sunshine, ice cream, waking up late. But, there's something about the end of the season where the humidity leaves the air, and things cool down just a little bit.  We had this perfect evening for Sam & Larissa's engagement session! There were even a few times where I felt a little chilly down by the ocean front! 

Sam & Larissa had such a great idea to do their session at the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge.   Even after growing up in the Virginia Beach area, I had never actually visited the Back Bay refuge. I loved it here! It's in a remote, tucked away area, the views are gorgeous, and you can actually see the ocean and the bay at the same time.  We had such a blast exploring and taking in the beautiful scenes! It really was the perfect spot for their engagement session! Sam & Larissa are getting married next year at the Wintergreen Resort and I cannot wait!!

Downtown Lynchburg, Virginia Engagement Session || Levi & Chelsea

This time of year is full of engagement sessions and I love it! There's no pressure, and we can just chat, learn more about each other, and I love hearing all about their wedding planning process and what they've gotten done! I know it can be so overwhelming with to-do lists, so much research, and trying to make all those decisions! Being able to step away from all the craziness and almost reconnect as a couple at an engagement session is so rejuvenating!  I had so much fun with Levi & Chelsea- and their adorable pup Skully at their engagement session this week! We met at the Old Towne Cemetery in Lynchburg, Virginia and then headed to downtown Lynchburg- where they had their first date. 

Summer Trivium Estate Wedding || Nathan & Mason's Lynchburg Wedding

This wedding makes me feel totally old! You see, I used to babysit Mason, and there are some super embarrassing photos floating around out there of us singing on stage together at church! Let's just hope those stay packed away and hidden! ha! I took Mason's senior photos, some family portraits for them, and their engagement session out at Sierra Vista and I have some gorgeous bridal portraits to share as well! But there was something so special about being a part of their wedding day! I absolutely loved every minute of it!! 

Nathan & Mason's wedding day was so beautiful! She made such a stunning bride- and was so calm and joyful the entire day! Their Trivium Estate wedding was timeless and beautiful! They had a gorgeous no peek moment where they shared sweet letters, we all shed tears, and then she had a first look with her Dad. Talk about moving! To top off the evening, we headed out for sunset photos overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains! 

 

Thank you to the vendors that made this day so perfect!!

Central Virginia Engagement Photos || Ross and Shelly's Lynchburg engagement session

Somehow, I have really lucked out with the sweetest couples over the years! I love getting to know a new couple at an engagement session! The nerves disappear after the first few minutes and we get to walk, chat, and learn more about each other! 

I loved getting to know Ross & Shelly more at their Lynchburg engagement session! These two are my kind of people- we had our initial meeting at Pippin Hill Winery in Charlottesville- one of their favorite past times! We did their engagement session out at the Human Kind property in Lynchburg and while the weather had us questioning a few times, it turned out to be a beautiful evening! Can't wait for their wedding!!
