• Mike + Emily | Engaged

keep saying that all of these recent sessions were FREEZING… I’m not exaggerating! Not one bit! It’s been COLD in Virginia so far this winter and we have already had a good amount of snow (but I’m still hoping for MORE! I love snow!!!).  So once the temperatures were dropping and the snow fell, Emily emailed me and asked if we should cancel because really, who takes their engagement pictures in 28 degree weather?! No one…… except Mike and Em. I talked her into bundling up and just having a wintery session last week and I’m SO glad we did! The snow does amazing things with light! It’s like having a huge natural

reflector around me constantly!  Emily and Mike are getting married in April and I’m so excited! … I’m excited for ALL of my 2011 weddings next year….(Blog stalkers… the lineup is looking good…. get pumped for some amazing couples!)  Since the wedding is in early spring we really needed to get their engagements done now and so despite the fact that Emily abhors cold weather….we made it happen. Their whole session took place where Mike grew up, in Dinwiddie county. (You have to say that with a “twang” to say it right).  As I was driving the back country roads with no lines on them, I felt like I was heading back to my home in Caroline County. There isn’t much there besides cow pastures and bean fields. Luckily Mike’s granny’s property had a great abandoned barn with tons of great locations. We made their session happen in about an hour and then I jumped in my car and blasted the heat the whole way home!


Mike and Emily I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you walking through briar patches, freezing to death and dealing with my crazy ideas. You two are awesome and I am beyond thrilled to be capturing your wedding day!! Enjoy some of my favorites!!

Love this so so much! Emily you’re beautiful!

I love Granny’s barn!

Mike! Wow! I TOLD you that you had a good model face!

A favorite for sure!
