Grace and Jake’s Downtown Harrisonburg engagement session was the cutest mix of laughs, staring cars, and the occasional crowd of people interrupting their shot (but it was hilarious). The love and laughter these two hold was held throughout their entire session. They graciously took all ideas I gave to them, even when I started the sentence […]
