Sweet Fredericksburg Engagement Session Amanda + Jake | Fawn Lake

Couple Sessions

I first met Amanda when she attended one of my photography workshops and I just loved her!! So, when she emailed me this year asking me to be her WEDDING photographer (ahhh!!) I was so excited! It’s always such an honor to be asked to photograph other photographer’s weddings. It’s also nerve wracking and means I have to really step up my game! I’ve been photographing more and more photographer’s weddings this year and I absolutely love it. We photographed Amanda and Jake’s engagement session last week in Fredericksburg and I’m so excited to be sharing!!

It was a toasty summer day for an e-shoot, but these two handled it like champs! They are so in love and were such good sports…we made it so much fun!! We photographed at some of my favorite locations and they had the most beautiful outfits (which I feel like is another perk of her being a photographer herself!!)

Enjoy some of my favorites, you two!! XO!
