Will + Michelle | Engaged

northern virginia wedding photographer kitchen engagement session

Well you

are in for a treat this evening! You remember me talking about how I LOVE IT when couples really take ownership over their engagement session and make it their own?! Well Will and Michelle are a prime example of what I’m talking about! This e-session was unlike any I had ever shot before. It was awesome. Michelle and Will have a shared love for cooking and when they thought about what they wanted to incorporate into their engagement session, cooking was perfect. Michelle emailed me with the idea and I was thrilled! We hung out in the kitchen together and I photographed them as they fixed a meal together.

Not only do they have fun shots together, they are photographs of them doing what they love. Michael and I love to go shopping…. so maybe we should have a photographer follow us around and document us spending money…… or maybe not. Cooking together was a fun, simple, and EASY way to incorporate Will and Michelle’s normal, everyday life into their session.  Are you starting to see why I love this stuff? Why I love sessions and locations that mean something? It’s just means so much more to the couple when there is extra meaning behind their images.

.

Will and Michelle were an absolute joy to work with and I can’t explain how excited I was to try something new with them! Thank you guys for allowing me to document your love for each other AND your sweet cooking skills! (Michael I think I picked up a few recipe tips, get excited:) … Enjoy my favorites!

Michelle, girlfriend your “model look” is killer!

Soooo here is the yummy stuff!

How much do you love Michelle’s ring?!! Oh man!

A few winter wonderland shots… I’m loving this snow that keeps hanging around VA!

LOVE it!
