Allysa + Nathan | Engagement Session Downtown Fredericksburg, VA

Last week, I kicked off 2017 engagement sessions with Allysa and Nathan’s beautiful shoot in downtown Fredericksburg! The weather has not quite decided whether or not spring is here…but we had the most amazing day: 60 and sunny with just the right amount of fluffy pink blooms…it was perfect!

Allysa and Nathan are such a sweet couple. Even when I wasn’t photographing them, they stayed snuggled up in each pose laughing and having fun. It was the best! These two met during their sophomore year of high school, but didn’t start dating until a few years later after they graduated. They went their separate ways and dated long distance while pursing their college education in different states. Now, they are tying the knot in October and I can’t WAIT to be a part of their big day!

Enjoy some of my favorites from Allysa + Nathan’s engagement session!
