We started out at the beautiful Black Swan Books in Historic downtown Staunton, VA. The sun soaked book store was the perfect backdrop for these two. They are comfortable and at home in a book store setting. Dustin had proposed with her ring hidden in a lovely false book, so it's even more fitting to have their session here. I cannot wait to photograph them next weekend on their wedding day!
In exactly ONE WEEK these two love birds will be getting hitched at the stunning Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards, but these two call New York City their home. I headed up to the big apple and we had a blast traipsing all over the city. I am thrilled to have their beautiful engagement session featured on Style Me Pretty Tri State Blog today! Please head on over to see some of the magic that happened this past May and leave some love in the comments on SMP for these almost newlyweds!
Caitlin + Karl had such a sweet engagement session. I loved their warm energy. They really LOVE Richmond, Virginia and they took me to some great spots for their session. I adored 23rd & Main Kitchen and Taproom with it's rough wall and gorgeous light. I am looking forward to working with these two again!
This is one of my favorite engagement sessions from last year. You have already seen their spectacular wedding on these pages. (I'm a little backwards here. Trying to catch up and get a schedule!) Jenny and Jeremiah have an easy kind of love. It radiates from them like a warm spring day. Here's to dreaming of warmer weather! We started our day at Monticello where Jeremiah schooled us on heirloom plants from the gardens. Then we trekked up to Carter's Mountain for a quick trot with their adorable dog and managed to catch a spectacular sunset for the grand finale. This is the epitome of engagement shoots. It has it all. Natural beauty, gorgeous light, awesome outfits and LOVE. Glorious, wonderful LOVE!
When Jamie told me that she had found a graffiti wall with kissing robots I knew their engagement session was going to be so much fun! I loved the colors that they picked, the locations they took me to and the awesome props Jamie made! This session was so easy and full of love and positive energy. I can't believe I have to wait until next October to hang out with these two again!
