Romantic Engagement Session at The Greenbrier Ali + Josh | White Sulphur Springs, WV

Couple Sessions

I vacationed at The Greenbrier with my family while I was in high school, and it quickly became one of my “photography bucket list” locations at age 14. I photographed my first wedding there last year…and was SO excited when Ali and Josh reached out about their wedding at The Greenbrier this summer! When they told me they also wanted to do their engagement session there, I was BEAMING with excitement! The resort truly is like a photographer’s playground! It is filled with beautifully eclectic decor in bright colors and each room is different than the next.

It was a chilly 35 degrees on the day of Ali and Josh’s session, so we opted to spend most of the shoot inside the resort! After a full hour of exploring the property…I was SO glad that we did!! I even said to Ali that I think I could stay there for a full month and NEVER run out of places to shoot!! It is truly incredible and I feel so thankful that I was able to photograph this stunning couple at such a special venue!

Ali and Josh, I cannot WAIT for your wedding day this June! I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images from your engagement session. Capturing these memories for you was such a privilege!
