This session was just as sweet as it looks. We spent the evening with Megan and Tim in the country outside of Harrisonburg, Virginia. We were tucked away in the rolling hills in between beautiful fields and family farms. It reminded me all over again why I just love Virginia. We really have it all… beaches, mountains, history, and great schools! JMU, while it did play a role in Tim and Megan’s story, isn’t actually where it started!
Tim and Megan met and really got to know one another while they were on staff at a summer camp. Their story carried back to campus and they started dating. This gorgeous location wasn’t just a random spot I found in the mountains outside of Harrisonburg; it’s a location that Megan recommended because it’s a part of their story. This is where they would take friends who were visiting, where they would escape campus life on dates and where they would ride scooters together!! How fun?! I think one of my favorite moments throughout our entire evening together was when we were ending their shoot and Megan said quietly, “Well, we do have our scooters in the back of the car”. I think my response was, “What?! Omg YES!!! Go get them!” haha! The view was magnificent but the finale with the scooter riding was just the icing on the cake!
We love Megan and Tim! We love their sweet relationship, we love how Tim can have us all cracking up and we love what God is calling them to as a newlywed couple. It is such an honor to be the ones that get to capture this special season of their lives! Enjoy their engagement pictures… especially the last few!! Smiling and scooting at the same time is really quite a talent!!
When I’m scrolling on Instagram or looking through images after a shoot, some images just stand out and capture my attention more than others!
I don’t know if I have ever photographed a more gracious bride in the most horrendous heat! Seriously, Kelsey is a literal angel on earth. She brought her entire family to Virginia from South Dakota for this portrait session and was so incredibly kind even in the midst of 100 degree heat and humidity!
Lenses are NOT cheap, so when you invest, you want to make sure you’re choosing the best option!
If you think about a wedding day and the part that makes you cringe is having to interact and direct the groomsmen, I get it.
This was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have ever seen, but the timeline didn’t quite pan out like we had planned.. The rings got lost, hair & makeup went long, storms were rolling in and there were some stressful moments!
You’re not going to believe this but this session was probably our easiest DC engagement session to date! We had glow, no crowed, a beautiful setting and the most wonderful couple!
