Romantic Garden Engagement Session | Stafford VA photographers

These two had the most romantic feeling at their engagement session at the local historic garden. Our normal shoot time was pushed to earlier in the day but the pictures came out beautifully. It had been raining and we went back and forth on which location would be the best given rainy conditions. We finally settled on Chatham Manor, and thankfully the sun was out! We normally shoot closer to sunset but we loved how these bright images look.

Shannon looked stunning in her little white dress, and Luke was perfectly casual and complimented her outfit. They also brought their dog, so, bonus!

Our clients always have us to walk them into poses, but these two were naturals! We would put them where we wanted their feet and they fell perfectly into a gorgeous stance, the only thing we needed to do that day was click away!

Shannon is an amazing painter, her website is you should check it out!
