Brandon and Lindsey | Engagement Session, Haymarket, VA

Last weekend I met up with Lindsey and Brandon in Haymarket, VA. This was my second time meeting Lindsey and my very first meeting Brandon. This couple is so sweet! Their wedding is in just two weeks and I’m really looking forward to it. We met at Brandon’s sisters house. She has a ton of beautiful land and we really had a good time walking around the property. It’s always a little nerve-racking and exciting to go to a place you aren’t familiar with to take photos. I was so happy when I arrived! The woods and fields were a perfect back drop and we got lucky with some of the most gorgeous weather that October has to offer!

Lindsey and Brandon have been together for years. It was so much fun getting to know a little bit about them and their relationship during this shoot. I always highly recommend engagement sessions to clients. It’s fun to get comfortable with one another, but it’s also so helpful on the wedding day. Thank you Lindsey and Brandon! See you soon!
Last two with Tex!

Tamara and Kenny | Engagement Session

Last month I met up with Tamara and Kenny at Ellanor C. Lawrence Park in Fairfax, VA. Tamara and Kenny gave me the honor of choosing a spot. Now that I live in Fairfax county I find myself passing this park a lot and being extremely intrigued by it. From the road you can just tell that it is beautiful and it has lots of character. I’m glad that I was able to experience it for the first time with this sweet couple! I’m photographing their wedding in January, so I really enjoyed listening to them talk about their wedding plans. It sounds incredible! I can’t wait!

I love engagement sessions because it really allows me to get to know a couple on a totally different level. Sometimes it happens to be the first time I actually meet the couple, which would be Tamara and Kenny’s case. They are really adorable and make each other laugh constantly!

Last one!
Thank you Tamara and Kenny! See you in January! 

Becki and Jacob | Occoquan, VA Engagement Session

I met up with Becki and Jacob in Occoquan, VA. I had never been there before, so I really enjoyed exploring the small town. Becki and Jacob have been together for 5 years and are getting married in June! They are such a sweet couple and I couldn’t be more excited for them to begin their adventure. Here are just a few from our session together!

I love these!

Last one!

Thank you Becki and Jacob!

Laurie and Anthony | Engagement Session

I went to high school with Laurie, so when she asked me to be her wedding photographer I felt so honored! Laurie and Anthony make each other laugh constantly, which was so helpful throughout our time together. I could also tell that they were helping each other relax. They are both so fun to work with and I’m really looking forward to their October wedding! Laurie and Anthony met me at Silver Lake Park, and luckily it wasn’t to hot and we got one sweet sunset!

Thank you guys so much! I’ll see you soon!

Taunya and Jake | Engagement Session

A few weeks ago I met Jake and Taunya at Frying Pan Park. Jake actually works there and it was the perfect place for this sweet couple. What I really love about Taunya and Jake is how much they make each other laugh, not to mention it makes for great photos! I’m really looking forward to their wedding in September! Here are a few of my favorites from our session together…
When I asked them if there was anywhere on the property that was significant they mentioned this barn…I love it!

Jake and Taunya thank you so much! Can’t wait for the wedding!

Melanie and Adam | Engagement Session

“Well my best friend, Adam, proposed to me on Christmas morning and we set our date for 11.21.11 (one day before our 5 year anniversary!)” Those were some of the first words in Melanie’s first e-mail to me. Right away I thought it was incredibly sweet for her to share that information with me, but also to refer to Adam as her “best friend.” I finally met Adam and Melanie in person and right away I could tell it was true. They are literally best buds, and so much fun to be around. We happen to have a few mutual friends, which made me feel like I already new them. Last weekend we went to Lake Braddock Park to take engagement photos. Earlier in the week the forecast had called for rain, then for overcast. We lucked out completely! The sun came out and it was beautiful!
Moose did such a great job!
I love this!
Okay, so I have to admit to something. I CANNOT do a serious face to save my life, and I really wish I could. These two pull it off beautifully!
As we walked around we talked a little bit about how Melanie is extremely active. Okay, so as I’m looking through my photos I just keep looking at her arms. I’m SO jealous!
Last one, and seriously? And you guys are gorgeous!
Thank you guys! I can’t wait for your wedding in November!
