Christmastime for wedding photographers means two things: the end of a long season of no sleep, and the beginning of mega-inquiries on the next two years’ wedding dates. So, congrats to all the newly engaged couples out there (btw, did you know Jon & I were engaged on Christmas Day 2007? ahh, the memories…)! Let’s set the mood for engagement season, shall we?

Now that our insane season is winding down, I’m excited to start sharing more of what we’ve been doing this year starting with this oh-so-romantic engagement session at Fox Meadow Winery in Linden, VA. This place sits up on a mountain overlooking a gorgeous set of mountain ranges and valleys below. Fall was the perfect time to capture Mike & Christina at this awesome venue with gorgeous colors everywhere we looked! Be on the lookout for their wedding photographs next summer at Bowling Green Country Club in Front Royal!

I love doing newborn portraits in the client’s home for this very reason…

I may be a little obsessed with toes, and cute adornments for said toes 😉

I had a fun time in Winchester, VA with Ben & Caroline! These two had their engagement session just one week before their wedding! The day was incredibly windy when we started shooting at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley, but we made the best of it and captured some great moments. Be sure to check out the sneak peek image from their wedding day over on our Facebook page!

Getting to shoot Bodhi’s newborn photos was really special to me for two reasons. The first is that I had the honor of taking photos of his sister, Willow, a couple of years beforehand. See her adorable session here. The second being Bodhi was born on my daughter’s birthday and has the same name as my son! bodhi newborn photographers winchester vaWe did the session at their gorgeous log home just outside of Winchester, Va., where they had Willow’s wall art displayed from their previous session.
