Meadowlark Botanical Gardens Engagement Session
Maura and Chris are getting married this December and I could not be more excited they asked me to photograph their day. When Maura inquired through my website, she mentioned that I have photographed a bunch of people she knows – turns out, these people were my best friend, my brother’s fiancé, and other long time friends from high school. I sincerely love that with each couple I work with, my world gets smaller and smaller. It gives me such a sense of community.
Anyways, we met up for the first time for their engagement session at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, which is a gorgeous spot in Vienna, VA. It was right around the time the cherry blossoms were out, and we got lucky with a few beautiful blooms!
The two of them are so wonderful together. Chris showed me photos from where he proposed (near a lighthouse!!) and wouldn’t stop complimenting how great Maura looked (she had her bridal hair & make up trial earlier in the day)! Also, side note, Maura’s whole look is so classic and just amazingly put together (currently typing this while wearing yoga pants, a hoodie, and a messy bun). So they were so cute. We strolled around the property looking for good light and backdrops that had some color!
