• Travis + Amy | Engaged

on this blog post and listening to CHRISTMAS music!! Is it too early for that?? ha! I seriously love this time of year…. especially in Virginia. The colors around here are amazing… even after a hurricane!! Michael and I met Travis and Amy at her parent’s home on Fawn Lake in Fredericksburg for their eshoot last week and we were pleasantly surprised that Sandy’s wrath didn’t make a huge impact on the backyard!  It was a great location for their engagement shoot!! It was almost surreal being there because Amy is one of our sweet CNU friends and I remember being a little college freshman

and going to christmas parties at her parent’s house with all of our friends!  Oh those were the good ol’ days!! Travis and Amy are obviously gorgeous people… I mean, it’s hard to find more photogenic people than these two!! However, what makes them amazing is that they are just as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside… is that cheesy? Yep, definitely cheesy… but it’s so true.  Their genuine personalities made Michael and I feel right at home as soon as we walked in the front door. It’s so much fun for me to get a chance to see old friends and be a part of this super fun phase of their life! Amy and Travis are just as busy as we are and so it had been forever since I had actually had a chance to catch up with Amy! It was so wonderful to hear about their story and all that they’re envisioning for their big day! Amy and Travis, you two are such a joy to be around!! Michael and I got in the car after your shoot and both said “Aw, they’re so great!!”  Thank you for allowing me to capture this fun phase of your relationship!!  Enjoy my favorites!!


 I sure hope all of you blog stalkers out there are going to love their shoot as much as I do because I’m slightly obsessed!

Oh Amy! Just stop it!! 

So cute:)


REALLY love!

Seriously? wow.

Love her ring!


Love this one! Weeds will never get old to me!

Love these next two and just couldn’t decide!!!
