Paige + Trevor | Sweetheart Session Fredericksburg, VA

Couple Sessions

Last spring, Paige + Trevor were the winners of an Instagram sweetheart session giveaway + I had the honor of shooting their session through the streets of downtown Fredericksburg. However, a year later, these two are both about to head to college and be across the country from one another. They are one of the SWEETEST + most genuine couples I have ever worked with +  I adore them both so much! When I needed a couple for my mentoring session with Haley of Haley Elizabeth Studios, I knew these two would be a perfect pair!

The day of our shoot ended up being a toasty 105 degrees, so we began our shoot in-studio! I taught Haley all about posing couples naturally + studio lighting before we headed out into the heat! We ended up only shooting for 15 minutes before we had to call it quits, but I am in love with all of the images we got, even in that short amount of time!!

Here’s one of my favorites from their shoot last spring!! It’s crazy how much your photography style can change in just one year!!
