Lakeside Fall Engagement Session in Culpeper Hunter + Andy | Culpeper, VA

Couple Sessions

I am currently prepping this blog post while sitting in the Denver airport!! I am speaking at a conference first thing tomorrow morning before flying straight to NC for this weekend’s wedding…whew!!! It’s going to be a great and FULL few days!!! 🙂 But, last week I had the opportunity to photograph two beautiful engagement sessions that I have been dying to share. And Hunter and Andy are one of them!!

These two met at Virginia Tech in 2012 and fell in love while pursuing their degrees there. Andy also proposed in Blacksburg and I LOVE that they incorporated their love for VT into their engagement photos!! We had so much fun exploring some new locations in Culpeper and their pups even got to hop in for a few!!! 🙂 Enjoy some of my favorites!

Hunter and Andy; I can’t WAIT for your wedding next year!! AH!
