Shelley and Tom's Engagement Session

As a photographer I love just about every session I do. I love working with people and creating images that I know they will look at for years. I have to say though this session was so. much. fun! Shelley and Tom are the type of couple that love to laugh, goof around, and are all around a joy to work with. Shelley suggested the Canal Walk as a location for their engagement photographs and  we decided to go to Libby Hill Park as well to get some images with the city in the background. The two locations created a perfect combination of an urban setting and a natural setting which you just can't go wrong with! We lucked out awesome weather on a Friday evening, which has been so rare in Richmond over the past month. There was a close call with a giant (well at least to me) black snake that came out of a trashcan on the canal walk, but I am happy to report that we all made it- ha! 

Engagement sessions are such a great opportunity to get a couple comfortable in front of the camera before their big day, and to all get to know each other better! I can truly say that I am so looking forward to their wedding this November, and to celebrate with them at their wedding!
