winter clothes for engagement

For Jessica & Matt’s beautiful winter engagement session they wanted to capture the memories of where it all started! They met at UVA when they attended the inaugural Masters of Commerce program, so we thought the UVA Lawn and greek archway at the Dell would provide a great backdrop for their pictures!

We love Matt’s proposal story. As it goes, Jessica had stumbled upon a conversation that Matt was planning to propose in Iceland. Luckily, Matt caught on that she had noticed and changed his whole plan by popping the question at a beautiful winery in Long Island! Upon seeing a big barrel with Champagne and glasses, Jessica thought they had stumbled across someone else’s proposal, until she read a piece of paper that said, “The Engagement of Jessica and Matthew.”

We are so excited for this fun loving couple’s wedding coming up in August … fittingly at another beautiful vineyard, Veritas Winery!

With or without snow, winter is such a beautiful time for portraits.  The Monticello Trail was a great location for the Taylor family to do their family portraits last year. We had photographed a mother and daughter portrait session for Sunny and Rachel back in 2011 and it was so nice to see them again for some more pictures with the whole family!

This year we are excited for our winter sessions, especially once the snow falls! To have your family portrait session in the snow, email us at and we will add you to our notification list.
