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!!

Coleton & Elizabeth's engagement session || Downtown Lynchburg, VA Engagement Photographer

I looooooooove that I have some super awesome couples that are braving the cold and getting their engagement photos done this winter!! I was so excited to have our engagement session with Coleton & Elizabeth- when I first met with them a few months ago, it totally felt like I was catching up with old friends! They are the sweetest couple, are always laughing & smiling and so down-to-earth! What could be better!!?! 

We met up in downtown Lynchburg and got some photos on the streets in Lynchburg and then headed over to Percival's Island on the Blackwater Running Trails!
