Virginia Engagement Photographer
Jacob and Laura chose to do adventurous engagement session in Great Falls State Park to my absolute delight. When I saw Laura walking up to me in a long flowy dress my heart skipped a beat. I am someone known for hiking in dresses and the juxtaposition of rugged terrain and boho vibes is just very inspiring to me. I knew from the get go it was going to be a very special shoot! Although it was a stormy afternoon the rain stopped just in time for us to enjoy the beautiful scenery. I loved how cloudy skies added the drama to an otherwise happy-go-lucky vibes of our session with lots of laughs and candid posing.
Great Falls is one of my favorite spots for adventurous engagement sessions because it has such a variety of backdrops. It has the rapids, the rocks, the woods and even a little beach area. I think it’s important to incorporate not just couple’s closeup portraits but also the environment that surrounds them.
Whenever I do adventurous engagement sessions it always feels like I’m out hiking with my best friends. It’s so effortless to get to know each other and let our guard down when you are surrounded by beautiful nature. It’s easier to bond when the focus of the day is not posing for photos but having fun and exploring.
