One of the main purposes of an engagement session is to capture the unique relationship between the soon-to-be bride and groom as it is right now during this special season of their lives together. So I always strive to capture the authentic dynamic between each of my couples, because each couple is a little different. But Kathleen and Alan made it so easy for me to capture their fun, loving and easy-going relationship! They even brought some bubbles to use for the shoot to really show off their fun and goofy side! I don’t think I’ve ever laughed and smiled so much during a shoot. I’m thinking that that is just the effect that these two have on people!
I love when couples choose a location for their engagement session that plays a special part in their story. Maybe it’s where they met, where they fell in love, where he proposed or where they just like to spend a lot of time together. The locations that we chose for Kylee and Ryan’s engagement session this weekend checked a few of those boxes!
Part of moving forward in a new year also includes looking back at the year past! I’m so blessed to say that my 2016 was full of a lot of love and joy caught on camera. Not just at weddings, but also at engagement sessions! Engagement sessions are one of my favorite parts of a couple’s wedding photography experience!
When I look out the window and see all the snow on the ground, it’s hard to believe that less than a week ago I was enjoying a nice 60 degree afternoon on the beach with these two! Gotta love that VA weather! Scheduling a beach engagement session in January may be a little risky, but we really lucked out with a gorgeous day!
A few months back, I got an email from Kenny wanting to schedule an engagement session around the holidays. It’s not often that my correspondence is with the groom instead of the bride. But Kenny was actually planning on proposing around that time and was booking this engagement session as a surprise to his soon-to-be-fiance! How sweet!
