Graham & Emily | Ashland Engagement Photographer

Internet, meet Graham & Emily. Emily has been a dear friend of mine for years. We met in college our freshman year at Longwood University (did you know I went to Longwood? Oh yes. And a very influential year of my life, it was!) and have been friends since. When she got engaged this year I was SO excited for her! And of course, extremely honored when she asked me to be her photographer. It was awesome to finally meet Graham when we met up for their engagement session. They were adorably sweet together and made my job a cinch! I love engagement sessions so much because it helps show my clients that having your picture taken "isn't so bad." In fact, it's kind of fun and relaxing. Plus, you get to spend the entire session cuddling and loving on each other! Score! :) Here are a few of my favorites from their session:

Matt & Emily | Richmond Engagement Photographer

Happy Monday! Wedding season is in full swing and I still have some couples I have yet to introduce you to!! Today I am introducing Emily & Matt, high school sweethearts that have been together for over ten years! As soon as we started their engagement session I immediately picked up on how comfortable they were in one another's presence. They felt at home with one another, which I personally find super romantic! We walked around Maymont Park in Richmond just chatting and getting to know each other. Matt makes Emily laugh and her quiet demeanor compliments his relaxed personality perfectly. They were adorable cuddling up to one another during our time together. I am so excited to see these two share their vows in just a few weeks and capture the celebration that follows!

So last week I introduced you to Amanda and her team from Ashley Baber Weddings. Today, I would like to share a peek into the beauty that can unfold when a wedding designer teams up with this area’s finest vendors for your wedding. This was a beautiful set up at Bliss: A Fine Wedding Fair. You are looking at the incredible talent of Amanda Gray (stylist), Amy Thornburg (florist), and Jennifer England (cake artist). Are they not an incredible trio?! And they are all local to Lynchburg. So beautiful.

Will & Leisha | Fredericksburg Engagement Photographer

When I heard these two has gotten engaged, I was so giddy for them! Will is the brother to my college roommate, Sarah. I was in Sarah’s wedding last summer and I brought along the Snapshot Studio as a part of our gift for her wedding. That night, Will and Leisha became the subjects of some of my FAVORITE pictures ever taken in the Snapshot Studio. Seriously - look how adorable they are!!

So, when Sarah contacted me about their wedding I immediately jumped at the opportunity to get them in front of my lens! :) We got together about a week ago and they just turned up the cuteness while I snapped away. It was a chilly day, but the sun was shining and they were glowing in their love for one another. They are getting married so soon! This coming weekend, actually! The anticipation in the air reminded me of those last few months of my engagement to Tommy. There is nothing that gets me more excited for a couple than when I can see, feel, and truly understand the thoughts that are passing through their minds as they cuddle up to one another and recall the days, moments, and kisses that brought them to this day.

Breathtaking. And these two… they have it. That spark that takes your breath away. Love them. Love these pictures.
