Engagement shoots are always so much fun because we are able to get to know a new couple, hear their story of how they fell in love and document it all on our camera! Dayna and Scott’s Glenmore Engagement Session was no exception and Aaron had a wonderful time with this gorgeous couple! Dayna’s love for horses helped them choose to have their session at the gorgeous Glenmore Equestrian Center which we think was the perfect choice! Also, I must say, Dayna is absolutely stunning with her unique Marilyn Monroe-esque beauty that we know Scott loves!

We can’t wait to photograph this awesome couple again at their wedding in August and enjoy looking through some of our favorite photographs from their lovely engagement shoot!

Clifton Inn

Carissa and Ron’s stunning Clifton Inn wedding was one of our favorites of this year! The whole day was such an intimate and special affair and we loved getting to spend time with the couple and their loved ones! Carissa and Ron had one of the sweetest first looks I’ve seen! It was evident how deep their love was and how excited they were to become husband and wife!

After their first look at Clifton, we went to the Lawn for a few wedding portraits at UVA, as the University is a very special place to Ron. It is always so fun to photograph couple in places that are meaningful to them! The reception was beautifully decorated with the gorgeous floral arrangements by the talented Amy Webb of Blue Ridge Floral Designs and we always have the best time working alongside wedding planners extraordinaire, Julianne and Mindy of Soiree.

Carissa’s mother’s toast was so thoughtful and touching, setting the mood for the rest of the night! Their intimate dinner led into a fun night of dancing with DJ Greg Tutwiler of 20 South Productions. It really was a magical night!

Congratulations, Carissa and Ron! We wish you a wonderful marriage and life together!
