Lynchburg, VA Engagement Session || Thomas & Logan's Lynchburg Engagement

These fall days in Lynchburg can be all over the place- one day it’s 60 and beautiful and the next it’s back up in the 80’s and SO humid. For Thomas & Logan’s engagement session, it was definitely the latter of the two, but we survived the heat and had a great time getting to know each other at their engagement session!

Thomas & Logan are getting married this December at West Manor Estate in the Lynchburg, VA area and I am super excited for their wedding day! And in December, I’m sure we will be wishing we were back in the summertime heat! ;)

Blue Ridge Parkway Engagement Session || Scott & Amy's Thunder Ridge Engagement

One of my most favorite things about living in Lynchburg, VA is just how close we are to so many amazing places- and the Blue Ridge Parkway is on the top of that list! Thunder Ridge is an overlook spot that is beyond gorgeous- I mean, those stunning views- and major perk- you don’t have to hike to get there! ;)

When I talked with Scott & Amy and they mentioned wanting mountain views and I knew Thunder Ridge would be perfect for their engagement session! These two are so sweet and I truly loved getting to know them both more before their wedding next year at Wintergreen Resort!

Shawn & Kelsey: Eagle Rock Engagement Session

You guys! I am so excited to share this session with you! I may have driven into a ditch and had my car sideways on 3 wheels when I first met them (what an embarrassing phone call to a couple you've never met! ha!) but wow did we have a blast at their session! Everything about the night was so easy and we laughed so much! And to top it all off- they got into the stream on their property for the most romantic ending to a session ever! 

We did photos out at Shawn's property, which has been owned by members of his family in the past- and it was so great because he showed me some of the most beautiful spots and places around that he loved! Guys, I am not even kidding when I say this spot was beyond beautiful! Mountain Views, Weeping Willow Trees, tall grass, a stream, I was in heaven! And the best part is- they're having their wedding here!! Makes my heart SO happy!!

What to expect: Engagement Sessions || Lynchburg, Virginia Wedding Photographer

Spring here in Central Virginia is just around the corner- which means Engagement Session season is going to be here before we know it! I LOVE engagement sessions because we truly get to know each other, laugh with each other (okay, sometimes the laughs are directed at me) and my couples get to learn how to overcome the camera anxiety!

I know the planning process can really seem super overwhelming- most people do have a fear of being in front of the camera- even in the day and age of the selfie! ;) I cannot even tell you how many couples tell me at the beginning of the our engagement sessions that they are not photogenic, but I make it my mission to change their minds on that!

When your prepping for your engagement session, remember that this is supposed to be FUN! This is the shoot with no pressure! On the wedding day, we'll be tight on time, have to worry about your dress, your guests, and we won't have extra time to chat and get to know each other. This is exactly why I include a complimentary engagement session with each wedding package! This is a time for us to get to know each other, feel comfortable with how I work, and have fun cuddling up in front of the camera!

What to expect for an engagement session || Lynchburg Virginia Wedding and Engagement Photographer || www.ashleyeiban.com

*When trying to decide on your outfits- try to choose outfits you feel amazing in! Some couples choose one outfit, and others decide to do two! It's completely up to you guys! If you do decide to do two, I recommend having one casual and one dressier outfit. Just know, there may or may not be a private place to change clothes depending on the location we choose! Try to avoid super bright/neon colors, or very small/busy patterns.  Try not to match too much- instead of both of you wearing the same color tops, selecting complementary colors and patterns looks best for photos! Think coordinating instead of matching. The key to what to wear is to make sure that you look like YOU and you feel comfortable!

*Relax & Trust me! I do NOT expect you to be a pro at this! I don't work with models, but everyday couples just like you guys all the time! I will remind you again on the day of, but it does take about 15-20 minutes to stop overthinking everything and really feel comfortable in front of the camera.  But you can relax because I will help you with exactly what to do and where to put your hands!

*I like to schedule engagement sessions about an hour and a half before sunset- any time of year. The light is gorgeous this time of day! Make sure you are on time. We schedule your engagement session for the best time of day for natural light.

*I highly recommend considering getting your makeup professionally done! Makeup artists are really good at doing a natural look, so don't worry about looking overdone! If you do your own makeup, make sure you apply your eye makeup a little heavier than normal for your photos.  

I hope this helps you feel more relaxed and ready for your engagement photos! I cannot wait for this super fun experience with you guys!!
