lynchburg engagement session

Lynchburg Wedding Photographer | Old City Cemetery Engagement Pictures

When we were planning their engagement session, Ashley mentioned she didn't care when or where we did their session, she just wanted to make sure it wouldn't be too cold. I did my absolute best weather dance before the weekend they were scheduled to travel from Charlotte, VA for their session. I must be a terrible dancer, because when we hopped out of our vehicles at 8 o'clock in the morning, it was a brisk 45 degrees!

"All the more reason to cuddle," I said! Ashley laughed and agreed... and cuddle they did!! I had a wonderful time photographing Erik and Ashley. They grew up together and have such a beautiful dynamic. I am really looking forward to their wedding later this year! 


Engagement sessions are reserved for couples who book the full Liz Cook Photography Wedding Experience. I am now booking for 2017 & 2018 and have only a few dates available for this year. If you are considering booking me for your wedding, please get in touch as soon as possible!

Brent and Kayla | Lynchburg Engagement Photographer

Brent and Kayla are such a sweet couple... a quiet, classy duo who fit in perfectly with the classic feel of Downtown Lynchburg. A graphic design major and a criminal justice major found chemistry in a speech class. Hah - how's that for an overuse of college terms? :) "The teacher's pet," he called her. And her bashful response made it clear why he fell for her sweet spirit. I so enjoyed last Friday morning with these two as we explored downtown for their engagement session. The day was beautiful and Kayla and Brent were up for anything. The chemistry between them is ALL over these pictures, they made my job so easy! These are some of my favorite engagement pictures I've ever taken.

Brent and Kayla, I am so happy for you guys! I am looking forward to catching a glimpse of your beautiful Maine wedding next spring and hearing about the after-college job hunting adventures! (Psst, Kayla is currently interning with clutch this semester. Be sure to check out the next issue to see her gorgeous design work!)

jared & lisa | west manor engagement session

I call these two my coffee shop couple. I met Jared and Lisa while they were both in law school, spending every waking non-academic hour at a local coffee shop studying for classes and then later for L-SATS. They spent so many hours at coffee shops around town that it was only natural for Jared to propose to Lisa in a coffee shop, with a full cup of coffee. And of COURSE we would shoot part of their engagement session in a coffee shop!

We stepped outside of the coffee shop for a few minutes to utilize the adorable patio for a few equally adorable pictures:

Then we hopped over to West Manor, the location of their wedding, and had a good time walking the grounds there. West Manor is such a beautiful location. They are under new ownership now and are in the process of renovating a lot of the property for the 2012 wedding season. I can't wait to see it all completed and with a fresh, new look!

Stay tuned for their wedding post later this week! I am on a blogging roll and can't wait to share all of the beautiful couples I had the opportunity to work with in 2011!
