Thankfully, we only had to use the “rain plan” for part of the portraits! We shot some portraits outside of the church and then the other set of portraits were take on the side of the road… in the middle of suburbia!! And yet it still looks like we were away somewhere on a farm! I loved it! Not only did I love that location that we used but I also loved this sweet family. Meeting family members for the first time is one of the parts of the day that I really look forward to! Needless to say, Austin and Melissa’s families were incredibly fun to work with! They knew us by name and we immediately felt like a part of the family as soon as we stepped through the door!

Melissa and Austin looked like super stars but they definitely didn’t act like super stars. They were so chill and easy-going the entire time. They trusted us and that means the world. There is literally nothing better than a couple who is willing to do anything for great portraits! We love these two and we have been looking forward to this since they drove to Richmond for their engagement!!! We love their dynamic and sweet personalities! I just wished they lived closer!!!

    Ooh, that rock wall is such a beautiful backdrop for portraits! I also love how the bouquets had so much greenery in them.
