Oh you’re going to love this. Or at least I’m hoping that you will! I am ecstatic about sharing this blog post for two special reasons:
1st: I photographed Becky’s older sister’s wedding! Remember Liz & Cameron’s beautiful vineyard wedding in Ronda, NC? If not, you can view pics of their wedding here (Becky was the maid of honor, of course)
2nd – Becky ended up catching the bouquet and Steven caught the garter! Here’s a pic, it’s just too cute not to share:
And now, Becky and Steven are officially engaged! I’m super bummed though that I won’t be able to photograph their wedding
Becky asked if I was available but unfortunately, their wedding is the day after my birthday and I’m planning to treat myself to a vacation that month and I don’t know how long I’ll be gone (Paris, London or Iceland anyone?!!)
We did however talk about possibly getting together after the wedding to do a Bride+Groom shoot, so I’m excited about that!
We met up at the Manassas Battlefield Park on a really windy day but Becky and Steven were such troopers. We laughed it off and even with our hair being blown all over the place, nobody complained
So here are some of their engagement pics! I have a ton of favorites and had the hardest time narrowing them down:
Not only are they a ridiculously GORGEOUS couple but they’re also such sweet, laid back and easy-going people.
This is definitely one of my favorites. And yes, I was squealing after I took this shot.
Just a quick note to all my future brides and clients: When I start squealing, that means you’re doing EXACTLY what I have envisioned and I know the photo is going to be amazing.
Becky is a soft spoken and laid back type of person and was a little camera shy at first.
But when she told me that she ordered her dress (yes, that sexy coral pleated dress) from RentTheRunway.com for the engagement shoot, I urged her to have fun with it! So000, we added a dash of fashion fierceness to the engagement shoot After all, the wind was already giving her that natural supermodel hair-blown effect. Needless to say, she rocked it effortlessly and I’m SO glad I have amazing clients that trust my vision and ideas
This reminds me of an Abercrombie & Fitch or American Eagle ad.
Hey Becky & Steven…if I come across a model casting call for A&F or American Eagle, I’m totally submitting this photo!
Just an FYI 😉
