Earlier this month, I was asked to do an engagement session for Walter and Jessica. This alone, was an exciting endeavor: I had never done a formal couple’s session before. Additionally, I have known Jessica since before she was born, so although I had never met Walter before, working with them felt a lot like working with family. It was definitely an enjoyable evening.
New challenges arise in every photography session and until Walter and Jessica’s photo shoot, I had been in the habit of having my clients come to my property – I know where to go and what to do under different weather conditions. Jessica wanted the beautiful Virginia farmland near her parents’ home to serve as their setting, so I figured it was time to take on a new challenge. I’m glad I did! Complete with pond, country road and open sky, the setting was beautiful.
