Harrisonburg, VA Engagement | Clara & Iain

March 27, 2021

They ran, they cuddled, they conquered. <— a phrase I’d use to describe my evening with Clara and Iain. My GOODNESS – I am completely obsessed with these two and their vigor for a life well-lived and loved.

There’s something about sunsets, pizza, and two kindhearted (new!) friends that make an engagement session 10x better. I met Clara and Iain at one of their favorite spots in Harrisonburg – this location is special to them, both as individuals and as a couple. When lots of time and prayer (and sunrises) are spent in one location, you know it’s a good one. 🙂

We then traveled to a friend’s farm and it had a complete 360 degree view of the mountains. Needless to say, Clara and Iain picked the best locations and I now feel the need to consult them on all future session locations – it’s fine, I’m fine.

Amongst the thissels, cow manure, and crazy prompts that (almost) put them in danger, they absolutely rocked their session and I am SO excited to showcase a few images from it. I’m definitely looking forward to their special day in October and will most likely be counting down the days until their wedding gets here – here’s to a beautiful October wedding (and more pizza dates in the future!)


Clara & Iain,

Thank you so much for allowing me into this beautiful journey. I love your vulnerability, openness, and willingness to learn (while having fun along the way!) I’m truly so grateful for our paths crossing and cannot wait to capture one of the most important journeys as a couple! Enjoy the sneak peek of your engagement session 

  1. […] During their consultation with me, something stuck out to me so clearly with these two (and I could NOT put my finger on it). I remember driving home from a weekend away and really, truly thinking that Clara and Iain were going to change lives. And I’m so glad the Lord put them in my path for me to capture this journey from engaged to married (if you missed their engagement photos, you can check them out here!) […]

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.

"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.
