Caroline + Costa | Richmond Engagement Party Mankin Mansion | Richmond, VA

Last weekend, I had the privilege of photographing (and attending!) my sweet friend Caroline’s engagement party at Mankin Mansion in Richmond, Virginia! She is marrying the love of her life, Costa, later this year and threw an incredible engagement party to celebrate! With over 100 of her closest friends and family in attendance, she welcomed them with a pink carpet, Photo Booth backdrop, beautiful decor and a Jaguar F-type out front for portraits. WHAT!? Such a dream!

Before the party began, we spent two hours capturing engagement portraits and a film with Joshua Bryan Cinema (scroll down to see)! These two are so high-fashion and drop-dead gorgeous…I don’t think we could’ve taken a bad photo if we tried.

Caroline is such a sweet friend of mine and I feel so lucky to know her and be involved in such a special time in her life. Each and every part of her wedding experience is so special to me, and I’m so excited for you all to see these portraits today! Enjoy some of my favorites!

First up, can we all just swoon over this film by Joshua Bryan Cinema? Love working with him!
