I headed up to Roanoke College with Elizabeth and Dusty for their “get to know you session”, Angel couldn’t make it this day so we went ahead without her and had a blast. We roamed around the Roanoke College campus and found some beautiful spots to shoot at and generally had a good time, while getting to know these two and sharing a few laughs. They’ll be getting married this Saturday in Salem with the reception at The Inn at Burwell Place.
Such a cute couple…
Elizabeth will make a stunning bride…
And Dusty will make a handsome groom… Since Angel couldn’t make the first session we headed out again a little later and short a short session with them before having dinner just to get to know everyone a little better…Abbey Road?..
Lindsay met us at Karolina & Chris’ wedding, she and Cary got a first-hand look at how we work on the wedding day. During the reception they introduced themselves and inquired about our availability for the following year, I told them we were available on that day and that we should meet to discuss everything. We met a few weeks later over coffee and had a blast getting to know on another and talking about their big day! We met for their Engagement shoot (get to know you session) at a neighbor’s farm for a little horseback shoot…
We headed into the woods and found a great fallen tree, all mossy like and had to stop for a quick shoot there…
At the bottom of the trail we had these crazy kids climbing on rocks in the middle of the river for some lovey-dovey fun!A super cute sequence!Horseback? Oh yeah, She’s got skills! Romantic? you bet!I love this candid moment…Next we got some sun-kissed goodness in the field…Add a giant strobe and you get this… (CD cover anyone? They rocked this photoshoot!) We can’t wait for the wedding day!A blingety-ring! (Nice job Cary!)So relaxed and natural, they are truly in love!Hang this one on the wall guys!
We will be at Saint Andrew’s again later on this year with Karolina and Chris, so to get away from the Downtown/Metro scene we headed up on the parkway for the engagement session. I scouted out the site for Explore park two days before our shoot was scheduled and looked around, a nice place but not quite magical…
Cue Karolina and Chris to enter from stage left! Suddenly this old park (no longer in use) takes on a new life for their images, great smiles from Chris, cute flirts from Karolina and POW! her is what we get!
The light was right, the mood was there, we had a great time with them and can’t wait for the wedding in October!
Garrett and Ben met with us early this year to discuss their wedding plans at the Kyle House in Fincastle. We hit it off immediately with the two of them, laid-back, funny, lots of smiles, we were excited to be working with these two. As the summer approached we setup an early engagement session in downtown Roanoke. This serves two purposes: 1. to create some beautiful images for the couple, and 2. (possibly more importantly) we create a rapport with the couple so that by the day of the wedding we’re like old friends (only they’re the ones with the funny stories about me, climbing on unstable stuff, almost falling, etc.)!
We found a dark alley to play around in, and Garrett worked it!
Ben gripped his fiance in a tight embrace and dipped her, check out that smile!
See, more hugs, more smiles, I think there’s a pattern here!
Happiness filled the air that day!
A super-attractive couple dodging traffic downtown!
Just before the smooch… (kinda has a vintage feel to it huh?)
They will be wed this Saturday the 19th, lotsa love, family and friends!
I have been a little behind on my blogging lately as we have gotten into the busy season of the year for us. Designing sample albums, meeting with couples, scouting locations, all in addition to the shoots that are the meat and potatoes of our business.
Well speaking of shoots, we had an engagement session session with Jennifer and Michael (whose wedding we’ll be shooting in May). They are an extremely cute couple, who are great to work with, they toughed it out through the wind to get some great shots with us a few weeks back. So great to work with, and you can truly see the adoration they have for each other in their eyes when they’re together. Well enough of my rambling, let’s get to the images…
