As we usher in 2018, we would like to congratulate all of the newly engaged couples! As you start your wedding planning process, one of the first things we always recommend is scheduling an engagement session shortly after becoming engaged! As you will see from our best engagement pictures of 2017, these pictures will be ones that you cherish forever and you will use many times throughout your wedding planning! Whether it be for save the dates, a wedding website, pictures for your new home together, gifts you give to your parents, or simply a new Facebook profile picture, there are so many uses for your engagement pictures!

This past year we enjoyed photographing at some of the most beautiful venues in Charlottesville, including Trump Winery, King Family Vineyards, Waterperry Farm, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Chiles Peach Orchard and Veritas to name a few! As you will see from our best engagement pictures of 2017 , picking a great location is always essential to planning the best engagement session.

Today we are thrilled to share our best engagement ring photography of 2017! As Virginia wedding photographers we love getting as creative as we can with these pictures! We often incorporate different meaningful items from the wedding day into our pictures, and just love seeing the reactions of our brides when we show them a sneak peek on the back of our camera.

Why not place the rings on a small object to really place focus on the individual rings?
