Allie + Ashton | Fredericksburg Engagement Session Rustic Family Farm | Fredericksburg, VA

Couple Sessions

Allie + Ashton kickstarted the 2016 engagement season with a bang!!! We shot on Ashton’s parent’s beautiful farm property in Fredericksburg…it was amazing! We had such a beautiful sunny afternoon for their shoot with the prettiest light. We walked around the property, chatted about their amazing fall wedding day (that I can’t wait to be a part of!!!) + took some incredible shots! Not only are these two getting MARRIED this year…but they are also EXPECTING!! 🙂 So, so sweet!! I can’t wait to meet Allie’s little one who is due in only a few more weeks! So, this shoot is a little bit of engagement session meets maternity session-so much fun!

This season is always a little crazy with tons of beautiful seniors AND my amazing 2016 bride engagement sessions…so the blog is going to be so PRETTY the next few weeks!!! 🙂

Enjoy some of my favorites from Allie + Ashton’s rustic engagement session!
