Love is in the air. It must be because this fall has been chock-full of engagement sessions. I’ve had such a great time getting to know so many different couples, hearing how they met, how their relationships took different turns and up’s and down’s, and how, ultimately, they’ve ended up engaged and in front of my camera!
Cameron and Kevin are no exception. Newly engaged and in the beginning phases of planning their wedding, they met me at UVA (their alma mater) a few weeks back to revisit some of their favorite places on Grounds.
Of course we had to start off on the front steps of TJ’s iconic Rotunda…
And what kind of Cavalier engagement session would this be without a good smooch on the steps of the Rotunda?
After we finished with the Rotunda, we wandered back to the Lawn to where Kevin actually popped the question a few weeks prior.
Man, do I love Virginia in the fall!
Next we headed to the gardens…
Back on the lawn…we just couldn’t pass up the vibrant greens and golds of these leaves!
After a quick outfit change, we stopped off at the colonnade and then made our way down to Clark library.
Like I mentioned earlier, one of things I love about my job is the range of people I get to meet and work with. Some couples come to an engagement session with very specific ideas of what they want, where as others show up and want me to lead the way. I loved that Cameron and Kevin came with very specific (and creative!) ideas about where and what they wanted. Because both of their last names start with “z”, one of their genius ideas was to get some shots in front of the “Z” on the steps of Clark library. Love!
We ended the session on the Corner in front of The College Inn because that is where Kevin took Cameron on their first date. So sweet, you guys!
Cameron and Kevin: THANK YOU so much for sharing part of your afternoon with me and for allowing me to document your love and the places and moments that you both hold dear. I hope these pictures will bring you much joy for years to come! All the best as you begin planning your wedding and your life together!
