UVA was the perfect location for this sweet couples engagement session, especially since they met as med school students at the University of Virginia School of Medicine! They are both ER docs passionate about what they do but even more passionate about their love of each other and their precious dog, Blue! Blue was seriously the most well-behaved dog ever! As you can see in some of these photos, he literally sat down, looked straight into camera, and gave me the biggest smile! It was the cutest thing!!
These two did their engagement session right! We met under the Rotunda on the lawn and strolled around UVA, ducking into secret gardens, and wrapped the session watching the sunset from Farmington Country Club with a glass of wine in hand! Mary and Chris were so cheerful, laidback, and personable it was easy to make them feel comfortable on camera! Chris could easily make Mary laugh and I could instantly see how his goofy side put her at ease. Sometimes it’s about the small things at an engagement session, like learning how these two met and what makes them fit so perfectly together! I cherish these moments with our couples. When we can truly get to know them well before the bells, and whistles, and wedding day hustle. When it’s just the couple and my camera with no distractions, I can see the way they look at each other. And every time I see that look I think this is why I love this job, why I continue to photograph couples in love, and why I look forward to every wedding day!! <3
Mary & Chris, thank you for making this session easy, breezy, and beautiful! & thank you for being having the type of love that reminds me why I love my job! Your wedding day will be beautiful and we can not WAIT for September 23rd!!
