Cozy Fall Engagement at Wilderness Run Vineyards Amanda + Tim | Fredericksburg, VA

Couple Sessions

We spent a few weeks trying to decide the perfect location for Amanda and Tim’s engagement session. We went back and forth between shooting in downtown Fredericksburg or in other areas nearby…and we ultimately decided on two different locations. We photographed at the Fawn Lake Country Club (the neighborhood where Amanda’s family lives!) and Wilderness Run Vineyards, which is owned by a friend and a frequent date night spot. They could not have been more perfect choices! I absolutely love when my couples choose to do their shoot at a location that is sentimental to them and their relationship. These locations were also the most gorgeous fall backdrops we could have asked for!!! This fall weather has been so good to me so far (knock on wood!!)

Amanda and Tim are so unbelievably sweet and in love. They also have the BEST style!!! Their outfits were just killer! I had so much fun exploring these locations with them and soaking up the beautiful fall weather. I cannot WAIT for your wedding next year, you two!! Enjoy some of my faves!!
