They met at Longwood University, were in the same sorority and hold so many fond memories on this campus. I am so glad we made the trip because the university’s grounds are stunning & “downtown” Farmville even had a lot of charm to offer us! We walked around their campus while they pointed out to me certain buildings or areas that they remembered, reminiscing about their college days and their relationship. Quirky things like the one bar in the entire town, or the symbol that’s painted all over campus on the sidewalks meant for good luck from a secret society. That’s where we placed their engagement rings for a photograph, mainly to rub some good luck magic onto them. 🙂

I had so much fun getting to know Samantha & Hayley a lot better, watching them ease into the photography session and gradually become more comfortable with my camera & myself. They were able to have fun and enjoy their evening with each other, and really, I think that’s what it’s suppose to be about it! Congratulations Hayley & Samantha, I cannot wait for your wedding at The Obici House next year!jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0717 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0718 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0719 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0720 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0721 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0722 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0723 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0724 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0725 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0726 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0727 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0728 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0729 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0730 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0731 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0732 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0733 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0734 jessica_ryan_photography_longwood_university_engagement_portraits_virginia_0735
