Lynsay + Brian | Engagement Session Downtown Fredericksburg, VA

Couple Sessions

The season of engagement sessions is upon us and I just LOVE it!!! I had the opportunity to work with Lynsay and Brian last week and my heart was just melting during their entire shoot. They are the SWEETEST couple and they snuggled and giggled the entire time I was shooting, whether I posed them or not!! That’s a photographers dream right there 🙂 You can see how much they love each other in every photo I took and I couldn’t be more in love with these two!!!

Lynsay and Brian traveled in from Northern VA to take their engagement photos in downtown Fredericksburg and I am SO glad they did! We thought we were going to be storm chasing during their shoot to avoid a torrential downpour…but it ended up being BEAUTIFUL outside and not a drop of rain fell for the entire shoot!!! SO lucky!! We explored some of my favorite downtown spots before finishing up at a beautiful open field…I just love them all!

Enjoy some of my favorites from Lynsay + Brian’s engagement shoot and leave them some love!!! I can’t WAIT for their fall wedding this year at Shadow Creek!
