Last Saturday I met Rebecca & Sam in Clifton, VA for their engagement session! I have no idea how we lucked out with such a nice day in the middle of January. Sam was disappointed though – he’s from Alabama and was hoping to escape the warm weather for a weekend! I think he brought it with him! Rebecca and Sam met at the University of Alabama and are proud Almuni – ROLL TIDE indeed! They are such a sweet couple and I had so much fun spending the afternoon getting to know them better.
We started our shoot at Trummer’s on Main. A very nice restaurant with an amazing wine cellar! Many thanks to Megan at Events in the City (Rebecca & Sam’s amazing wedding planner – seriously, check her out!), we were granted access to shoot in the cellar! It was a great way to start the shoot and provided for some really dramatic, moody shots.
In stark contrast to these images, we also captured some shots around town! An old train car, a vintage Texaco sign, and “Main Street” provided some of my favorite photos of the day! We then ended at Paradise Springs Winery – which had some really neat architecture as well!
Rebecca & Sam – thank you so much for allowing me to capture this special time in your lives. I am so looking forward to your wedding in September! I know it will be a fabulous day!
