It’s Friday! Just to start your weekend off in a great way, I am sharing Mandy & Ryan’s beautiful winter engagement with you all. I had so much fun with them hanging out. I can’t wait for their wedding which is just a few weeks away! I feel like 2017 is just chugging along with perfect people that are coming into my life. I am so happy that Mandy & Ryan chose me to be their photographer. I have loved even the small beginning of getting to know them. We shared some a-ha, Beyonce, and an “it’s such a small world” moments. They were all equally amazing.
I first arrived at the session to be greeted by Mandy and two of her (and Ryan’s) friends. We went down to her room and we talked about what outfit options she had. I think she picked perfect outfits, one casual and everyday and just a little more formal one for her second option.
I particularly love when my couples have locations in mind that are special to them. It really creates a storyline that is unique to you. Of course, there are so many amazing places to do sessions in Virginia, but one that has meaning to you, and a real story, well that is just icing on the cake. We started their session in the exact same place when they first met. Hearing them talk about each other as we struck up conversation was awesome. It was real and authentic and there was just a ton of gratitude. It’s one of the things I always love seeing in my couples. As a wife to my truest best friend, I know what this feels like, and to see other people be able to share that makes my days.
We also hopped over to Randolph College and walked around campus a bit. It is truly a gorgeous campus. I loved that we were able to walk around two different locations to make such a variety of images for their gallery. No shortage of love and happiness here. Mandy & Ryan – you two are awesome people. I can’t wait for March!
