High Fashion Richmond Engagement Session Caroline + Costa | Richmond, VA

Couple Sessions

I think that Caroline has now officially been on my blog more than any other person!!! And I’m totally okay with it 🙂 Last weekend was Caroline and Costa’s WEDDING weekend and I have been looking forward to it for months! But, I won’t spoil any wedding post surprises yet…that comes tomorrow 🙂

Today, I wanted to share some of my favorites from our engagement/wedding weekend session on Friday! We spent a quick 45 minutes at the Richmond Capitol and captured some BEAUTIFUL portraits to begin an amazing weekend of celebration! These two are so easy to photograph and the color palette was to-die-for. I had WAY too many favorites but tried to consolidate this post so you don’t have to exhaust your thumb with scrolling. Enjoy a handful of my faves and get excited for the wedding post TOMORROW!!!
