Talara + Chris | Engagement Session Downtown Fredericksburg, VA


These two beautiful love birds traveled all the way from Kentucky for their engagement session!!! I was pretty nervous the week of their session for a few reasons: 1. They were traveling SO far for their shoot, and that always adds a little pressure, 2. Talara is a photographer herself, which adds just a little more pressure and 3. There was 80% chance of STORMS in the forecast on the day of their shoot after a full week of nothing but RAIN! Whew, talk about being nervous!!! But, when we started shooting, the clouds cleared and there was SUN for their shoot!!! Not only did we never get a DROP of rain…but we had the most amazing golden hour portraits at the end of the shoot!! AMAZING!

These two are so much fun and were such pros during their shoot…I just loved it!! Chris knew exactly what to do because he’s done photos with Talara so many times and they both rocked it!!! Their outfit choices, our amazing locations and the incredible golden hour light after a full week of rain made my heart so happy! I can’t WAIT for their wedding in Kentucky later this year!

Enjoy some of my favorites from their beautiful engagement session and leave them some love!!!

We may have taken these peonies off of a bush for these ring shots…worth it!
