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.
We are so excited for LeeAnn & Corbin, who will be getting married at Trump Winery this spring! We absolutely love the beauty of the rolling vineyards and country side!
We loved LeeAnn and Jessie’s long dresses that they choose for the summer engagement sessions! Picking a great outfit for your engagement session is key, and we are always happy to help with our style guide that we give our couples when planning their engagement session.
We love the peach blossoms at Chiles Peach Orchard in the spring! How pretty and pink!
It’s so fun when our couples include their dogs in their engagement photos! Look at their cute little bowties!
Samantha & Ryan live in Richmond, Virginia so we had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session at Belle Isle! How romantic is this with them dancing on the river bank?!
The sunflowers at Chiles Peach Orchard this past summer were awesome! Sunflowers add a great pop of color for any summer engagement session!
Rachel & Matt will be having a King Family Vineyards wedding this fall! Sometimes the best location for your engagement pictures is at the venue where you will be getting married!
Samantha & Ryan will be getting married at King Family Vineyards in the Spring and we cannot wait!
We just love our engagement session at Veritas Vineyards and Winery! We are so grateful for these views for our Virginia engagements!
Jessie and Matt’s engagement session at Waterperry Farm was one of our favorites! We really enjoyed exploring the countryside and the gardens at the farm.
Elizabeth & Gregor had their engagement session at the The Rotunda at the University of Virginia. They will be getting married in the UVA Chapel which we just love, and having their reception at the Boar’s Head Inn this Spring!
Lauren & James had their engagement photos at Swannanoa Palace up near the Blue Ridge Parkway! What’s more romantic than spending an afternoon at a palace!
