Rural Golden Hour Engagement Session Tigre + Josh | Fredericksburg, VA

Couple Sessions

Tigre and Josh are just the sweetest couple. Last year, I photographed Josh’s brother’s wedding (Anna and Caleb!) and these two got engaged shortly after! After meeting Tigre and Josh at the wedding, I was SO excited to receive an inquiry to photograph THEIR big day!! I was getting more and more excited as the date for their engagement session got closer, and we had the most wonderful summer weather for their shoot!

With a couple this kind and in love, their session was bound to be beautiful. We photographed at two of my favorite locations and had amazing light just before a storm rolled in! There are lots of new favorites in the post!! Enjoy and leave these two some love! Tigre and Josh: I can’t wait for your wedding day later this year! YAY!
