Alyssa + Hunter | Sweetheart Session Downtown Fredericksburg, VA

Senior Sessions

I think sweetheart sessions always end up becoming some of my favorite shoots. There is just something about capturing the love between two people that just makes my heart melt and I LOVE couples that choose to have photos done outside of their engagement or their wedding day! Capturing memories throughout your entire relationship, whether you are dating or married or it’s your anniversary, is SO important and so much fun!!

These photos were taken at a business intensive last week that I had with Chelsey! Chelsey is one of my past brides (you can view here engagement session HERE and her wedding HERE!) and she is also a wedding photographer herself. During her business intensive, we talked all about ways to grow her business through organic marketing, perfecting her posing and lighting, ways to improve editing and workflow, how to shoot a wedding day and more. It was an incredible afternoon and I LOVED having Alyssa and Hunter model for us!! We had to wait out the rain for the final shots on a rooftop downtown…but I’m so glad we did!!!

Enjoy some of my favorites from Alyssa and Hunter’s sweetheart sesh! If you are a photographer and would like to learn more about Hope Taylor business intensives, you can do that and view available dates HERE!
