Old Town Alexandria Engagement Session | Hannah & Mark

  Meeting with Hannah and Mark for their Old Town Alexandria engagement session was such a wonderful experience. I absolutely adore spring engagement sessions, and M+H brought the HEAT when it comes to cuddling up during a chilly spring morning. Hannah + Mark are one of those couples that you just know are destined to […]

Market at Grelen Wedding | Kylia & Aaron

K+A’s Spring Market at Grelen Wedding

Kylia and Aaron’s Market at Grelen wedding day was nothing short of amazing! Their day was long-awaited after a year of postponements, and it was greatly worth the wait. We took their engagement session in the Fall of 2020 and it somehow feels like it wasn’t that long ago (but also SO long ago?? A combo of both?) If you missed Kylia and Aaron’s engagement session, you can check it out here!

After filling out their pre-wedding questionnaire, Kylia and Aaron maintain so much intentionality inside of answers, and dove into the deeper questions. They really strived to make their day centered around family, fun, and laughter – judging from their images, it was for sure focused around those three things.

When asking about their “spark” and love story, Aaron wrote the following: “Our first hang out was on a snow day. All schools were closed and friends from high school where meeting up in the back of Kylia’s neighborhood. We laughed and played in the snow for it seemed like forever. When it was time to go home she finally gave me her number. I was beaming with joy on the inside but played it cool (obviously). I remember going home and telling my bestfriend AJ that something felt different about her…. 8 years and 2 dogs later I think its safe to say I was right.”

Their wedding overlooked a beautiful mountainside and they were surrounded by their family and friends who cheered them alongside eight (!!!!) years together. From high school, to college, to post-college jobs and animals and careers, these two have stood the test of time and I am so thrilled to have been the one that photographed this special time in their lives.

Cheers to the happy couple! Enjoy their sneak peek!

Taking Denise and Kevin’s engagement photos during the PEAK day of the cherry blossom’s blooming was a wonderful start to celebrate Spring!

Lake Shenandoah Engagement | Hannah & John

Oh my goodness, Hannah and John’s engagement session was a stunninngggggg time! I loved meeting these two at Lake Shenandoah (the spot where they actually got ENGAGED).

After they met during their first year in Law School, Hannah and John decided to make things official! They’ve been together ever since and, both being from the PNW, have decided to maintain residency here in Harrisonburg for awhile. I was so excited that they reached out for me to capture these exciting photos!

They’re getting married this summer in Hannah’s home state, Idaho. Best of luck with the rest of wedding planning, cuties!!

The Granary Wedding | Nadia & William

VA State Arboretum Engagement | Amanda & Sean

Meeting Sean and Amanda for their engagement session yesterday afternoon was a dream! After months of following each other on Instagram, I was so excited to finally meet these two in person. We spent awhile walking around Blandy Experimental Farm/VA State Arboretum – both Amanda and Sean were such troopers while battling the wind and colder temps. I’m so excited for their November 2022 wedding in PA, and am even more excited to show a glimpse of our time together – ENJOY!

Raven’s Roost Engagement | Glenn & Wesley

It was a gorgeous sunrise session this morning with Glenn & Wesley at Raven’s Roost! I had the pleasure of meeting these two just this morning and what a joy it was. Between scaling rocks (and Glenn did this in HEELS), practicing the Pinterest poses, and just getting to know these two, I’d say it was a successful morning together.

 

Glenn & Wesley,

Thank you so much for not only waking up early for your session, but for your flexibility, understanding, and grace while you put your trust into me during your engagement session! It was an honor to capture such an exciting time. Enjoy your sneak peek!

These two are celebrating their one-year anniversary to what would have been a celebration similar to this one (#COVIDcouple).

Bear’s Den Engagement | Alexandra & Michael

It was a windy morning spent with Alex and Michael, but SUCH a gorgeous one! These two met me at Bear’s Den overlook in Bluemont for a chilly engagement session this morning, and I am so excited to have met them! Bear’s Den is a gorgeous overlook that is easily accessible on foot (with sneakers). It was such a fun time jumping from rock to rock in hopes of capturing the beauty surrounding A+M. They were SUCH troopers with the wind and cold temps, and I’m so thankful for couples who brave uncomfortable conditions for their photos!

Their October 2022 wedding is going to get here before we know it, and I truly cannot wait to continue celebrating them as we get closer and closer to their wedding day!

Alex & Michael,

THANK YOU for trusting me with capturing your engagement and wedding photos! And thank you so much for braving the early, cold morning we had and doing so with smiles on your faces 🙂 It was a joy meeting you both! ENJOY your sneak peek!!
