Waking up early for an engagement session as pretty as this is not a problem! I loved walking around the Tidal Basin with Ryann and Andrew this week taking their engagement photos. We had been watching the Cherry Blossom's in DC for a few weeks, and even reschedule the session so that we would have them. I love the light and bright feel of taking pictures underneath these beautiful trees. Shooting at the Monuments in DC has been on my bucket list, and I am sure you can see why! That beautiful marble reflects so nicely in photos. I know Ryann and Andrew's November wedding will be equally as lovely! I'm so glad that I get to work with this sweet couple, and capture this time in their lives.
From start to finish this was a heartfelt wedding. Becky's wedding day details, and the venue the couple chose was so beautiful. The speeches at the reception were enough to make anyone cry. You can tell this couple makes a big impact on people's lives, and they are well loved. I could see that both families were truly happy about this marriage. The reception was full of dancing and laughing. For a February wedding, we were all very lucky to have had a warmer day. I wish Becky and Paul all the best in this next phase of life. Marriage is such a blessing!
It was a chilly, I mean a FREEZING day for this engagement session. We were taking photos in 30 degree weather! We thought it was going to at least be 40 degrees, but that didn't happen. However what did happen is that this awesome couple still managed to look comfortable, and happy during the entire session. The Red August Farm is a newer local venue in Waynesboro; that offers great views, and a beautiful rustic barn that can be converted into your reception venue. I am thrilled to be photographing Victoria and Roberto's wedding there this coming fall. We are very hopeful that it will be a little warmer! By the way, this couple owned the camouflage outfits. I don't think I've ever seen it executed this tastefully, another reason why I love this couple!
