Floral Fawn Lake Summer Engagement Session Amanda and D'Angelo | Fredericksburg, VA

Sometimes you meet with a client and you just click…and that’s exactly how it felt when I met Amanda at my studio for the first time!! We ended up talking for quite some time and I just loved her. I didn’t get a chance to meet D’Angelo until our engagement session last week…but I had a feeling I would love him, too, and I was right! We had the most beautiful spring day and Amanda looked STUNNING with her makeup by GoGo Gorgeous – it could not have been better!

One of my favorite things that happens at engagement sessions is when couples hold poses to snuggle even after I’ve stopped shooting…and these two did that the entire time. They were so joyful and so in love…it made my job SO easy! Joyful is always the best word I can find to describe my couples…and these two embody joy so well. They brought along all 3 of their sweet pups and we had the best time! I cannot WAIT to photograph their wedding this July!

Enjoy some of my favorites from Amanda and D’Angelo’s engagement shoot! I adore you both! Xoxo!
