Joyful Fall Engagement Session in Fawn Lake Megan + Dallas | Fredericksburg, VA

Couple Sessions

Have you ever seen such bright, joyful outfits on such bright, joyful people!? Because I don’t think I have!!! Megan and I went to high school together (she was a year below me and we were in the same drama class!) and I always thought she was just the cutest thing. She is now a photographer herself (and so talented!!) and is marrying the love of her life next year!! We met up last week to photograph their engagement session and it was SO much fun!! And, the entire thing is on film for something that’s going to be coming in the next few months…but more on that later šŸ˜‰

We had the most BEAUTIFUL fall day with 70 degree temperatures and a breathtaking golden hour to match!! Their fun, bright outfits matched their personalities perfectly and I could’ve photographed them for hours if the sun had stayed to hangout with us šŸ™‚ Megan and Dallas are just the type of people that radiate joy, and you can’t help by have a smile on your face when you’re around them! I hope you enjoy some of my favorites (because there were a ton!!!)
