John & Shannon | Apple Orchard, Virginia Engagement Photographer

What a sweet couple!!! Just looking at these photos, even without knowing them, you must think the same thing. :) I really enjoyed the opportunity of photographing John and Shannon’s engagement, but also getting to know them when we weren’t shooting. We met at a local apple orchard where the apples were in clear sight…
