Alex & Taylor | Skyline Drive Fall Engagement Photographer

Weeks of anticipation led to Alex and Taylor’s beautiful engagement session on Skyline Drive. It was a PERFECT fall day, and after weeks of stalking the weather (Taylor admitted), we were relieved to make this shoot happen! :) There’s a lot of prep that goes into a shoot, so we want it to work out…

We met at a local apple orchard where the apples were in clear sight…

Jacob & Brittany | Apple Orchard, Virginia Engagement Photographer

I pulled into the apple orchard to meet Jacob and Brittany for the first time, but I realized that this might not have been my first time passing by Brittany. Turned out that Brittany lives just around the corner from me! Small world. :) They gave me a good laugh, though, when I first got…
