Downtown Harrisonburg Engagement Session | Ariel & Evan

July 12, 2018

Oh boy, am I excited to show you Ariel and Evan’s engagement session or WHAT?! These two were the epitome of perfect couple. Just from spending a few hours with them I could tell that that the love they hold for each other is far from anything I’ve seen before. I love that they’re high-school sweethearts because it makes them that much cuter (can someone say “fairytale”?) Their love for each other, their occupations, and God speaks volumes just by their actions. Truly, one of the most respectable couples I’ve come across (and being a wedding photographer, I come across many)

If their engagement session is any indication of what their December wedding will be like, then I will be counting down the days. I had so much fun with these two and commend them for laughing at my lame jokes while walking around to each location.

The entire time I was looking over their engagement photos I was literally going…




Ariel and Evan,

Thank you for making my Wednesday so much greater! It’s couples like you that make this the best job in the world. Thank you for walking long distances (WHILE IN HEELS), talking to strangers, and briskly running away from skunks with me (“yeah that’s a skunk so I’m gonna go left…”). I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from your engagement session — hopefully I’ll see you at least some time before December! 🙂

WHY we're the perfect match


Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

Andrea is so professional and detail-oriented, while still being fun, friendly, and loving. She feels like she is your best friend as soon as you meet her! Throughout our wedding planning process, she sent a sweet little surprise gift box, a helpful photography planning guide, and she even made us a personalized ornament for our first Christmas! She goes above and beyond in everything she does.


"Her excitement about being our photographer was contagious."

From the first meeting, we knew Andrea was an experienced photographer who was also warm and bubbly, which is the perfect type of person to have around you on your wedding day. She was extremely helpful with answering any questions we had, and was very responsive. Andrea is incredibly organized and efficient. She captured the best moments and got all the shots we wanted without making it feel like the photography was taking over the day. Working with her was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend her!
