Brandon proposed to Amanda at a mountain peak after they hiked to the top together just a few months ago! He had their family and friends hike it earlier and surprise Amanda at the summit! If you have followed along with me, you know that I love hiking and that I created a hiking group for women, so the fact that this was the second couple too find my photography this year who started their engagement in the mountains makes me extremely happy! It never gets old hearing about couples’ proposal story!
They live locally in the Hampton Roads and wanted a different look than the mountains for their engagement session! We met the day of, which does not happen to often, so I was able to get to know Amanda and Brandon better during their portrait session at Windsor Castle Park. I learned that they love their puppy as much as I love mine! I will photograph any fellow puppy parents with their fur baby! Their puppy, Oakley, also has some of the same quirks that my dog, Foster, has! We laughed constantly at Oakley and I am convinced some of their best laughs were when she was around.
Fall colors surprised at Windsor Castle Park and I took advantage of the small patch of yellow and orange leaves. I enjoyed my evening with Amanda and Brandon and I hope you enjoy looking at their engagement portraits as much I loved photographing the two of them together. Congratulations Brandon and Amanda!
