I'm a published wedding and portrait photographer located in a small town outside of Charlottesville. In addition to capturing beautiful images, I love spending time with my family, am freakishly good at word games (Hey Wheelmobile!), love an ice cold can of Coke or Dr. Pepper, know every line to Hocus Pocus and can never pass up a Chick-fil-A waffle fry or a trip to HomeGoods.
My first interaction with Shannon was when she sent me a note about her upcoming wedding through Facebook. I saw that she was a UMW graduate and I knew then that she and her fiancee, Stephen, were going to be amazing and that was solidified when I met up with them last month for their engagement session.
Shannon and Stephen met in high school. He played sports and she was cheerleader. Shannon said she had a major crush, but the two ended up at separate colleges before connecting again after graduation. Now, they’re planning their fall wedding in Richmond and I couldn’t be more excited for them.
We met up last month at an outdoor location for engagement photos and these two were amazing. It was warm out and the grass was a little tall in some areas with a bug or two, but the light was perfect and they worked it. They have an ease around each other that I love. Stephen can make Shannon break into the biggest smile and it’s clear that they absolutely adore each other. I cannot wait to capture their wedding this fall. Until then, I’ll share a few of my favorites from their engagement session. On a side note, how amazing is Shannon’s dress? And that ring? Gorgeous!
