Allie + Mike | Engagement Session Downtown Fredericksburg, VA

Couple Sessions

This season of engagements and seniors is always my favorite time of year!!! SO many gorgeous graduates and so many of my beautiful couples preparing to tie the knot…it’s such a time of joy and celebration! Allie and Mike’s engagement session in downtown Fredericksburg could not have been more fun. The entire week had been 100 degree heat index…but we had a breezy 80 degree day for their shoot and I just loved it!

Our first stop was a beach on the river with GORGEOUS light seeping through the trees. Then, we headed to one of my favorite hidden gems in Fredericksburg and discovered some stunning nooks & crannies with pink flowers and golden light…I’m in love!

Enjoy some of my favorites from Allie + Mike’s engagement session! I can’t wait for their wedding at the end of July! AH!
