Engagement Photography 2015

Engagement sessions during 2015 were exciting, fresh, and all over Virginia! I loved traveling and getting to know my couples that were either getting married in 2015 or are getting married in 2016. I photographed in some beautiful locations in the Hampton Roads area as well as traveled to Longwood University, Hamden-Sydney College and Virginia Tech to photograph engagement sessions! As always these engagement sessions were full of laughter, at me or with me 😉 and intimate moments for the two of them! It’s truly one of the first times that a couple is able to take a pause and reflect on their love and their relationship throughout the wedding planning process!

Not only does it help me to get to know them better and get them comfortable in front of my camera it also allows couples to celebrate their engagement with just the two of them. I like to think of the engagement session as highlighting their love story and creating that romantic experience for them by finding out what works best for each couple. I like what engagement sessions can do for each couple and that makes my passion thrive. Below are portraits from my 2015 engagement sessions and the in-between, intimate and candid moments that occurred. Enjoy!
