When Emma mentioned to me that she wanted to do a Notebook-inspired, boat engagement session, I nearly jumped up and down in excitement. We hadn’t done a session on the water before and we were so excited to make it happen. We chose to meet at Newport News Park about an hour before sunset to get just the right amount of reflection off of the water and to make these two really pop off the background. Shooting in a boat has it’s challenges, but it was so worth it for all these beautiful shots! In addition to having the coolest backdrop for their engagement photos, Brandon & Emma have such a natural chemistry that was so easy to capture on camera. They have been together for six years this month! These two are so sweet, so kind and we had so much fun getting to know them better during their session.
You may remember Emma from some of the photos from our last wedding, and that’s because Emma & Ellie are sisters! These two have planned their weddings together and are getting married about 2 months apart! Emma & Ellie are both so beautiful and we are so thankful that we get to be a part of both of their wedding days. Especially considering Emma is also a photographer. There is no greater honor than to be chosen to be another photographer’s wedding photographer. We can’t wait for their November wedding!
Without further adieu, take a peek at some of our favorite shots from Brandon & Emma’s sweet engagement session on the water! 🙂
