Michael & Marilyn's Blue Ridge Parkway & Charlottesville Engagement Session

Engagement Portraits on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Central Virginia

Michael & Marilyn

Charlottesville Engagement Pictures

I first met Marilyn at Tyler & Chelsea’s wedding back when I was super duper pregnant with my youngest, Izzie, and I was waddling around from location to location to capture their wedding day. Marilyn was the wedding planner and she did an amazing job shooing people on and off the party bus while helping me make the most of our tight timeline. She mentioned she was impressed with my flexibility and wanted to book me for her own engagement + wedding pictures! What a huge compliment!!

Of course as a wedding planner, she came into the photography process with a lot of ideas which I was more than happy to accommodate! We started her and Michael’s engagement session off at the Blue Ridge Parkway with some scenic views and pockets of stunning fall foliage. Then we shifted gears for some romantic after-dark portraits on the downtown mall in Charlottesville, VA. I love the way their pictures came out!

Here are a few of my favorites… isn’t Central Virginia just such a show off during this time of year?! haha! :)
