Summer Engagement Session in Fawn Lake Vicki + Ryan | Spotsylvania, VA

Couple Sessions

Vicki emailed me slightly in a panic at the beginning of this year. Her and Ryan were planning their September wedding in a short period of time…and they couldn’t find an available photographer. She emailed me expecting me not to be available…but to her surprise, it was my LAST available September date! She is friends with my sweet past bride who sent her my way…so we were all SO excited that it happened to work out PERFECTLY!! We met for coffee a few short days later to make things officially official…and I’ve been looking forward to this engagement session ever since!

Vicki and Ryan are SO much fun to be around. Their laid back personalities are the kind that make you feel like an old friend any time that you’re around them. AND I got to meet their two sweet pups at this shoot…it was seriously a dream!!! We had to reschedule once due to bad weather but TOTALLY lucked out with a warm, sunny day for this shoot in Fawn Lake!

Vicki and Ryan, I just adore you both! I can’t WAIT to photograph your September wedding this year at Eden Try! Enjoy some of my favorites from your shoot! XOXO!
