Winter Downtown Richmond Libby Hill Park Engagement Session | Victoria & Stephen

When we looked at the forecast for the weekend of their engagement session, we had to admit that we were a little nervous to make the journey up to Richmond to meet with Victoria & Stephen. It was early December and they were calling for the first snow of the year. After going back and forth, we’re glad that these two insisted on doing their shoot, no matter the weather. In the end, it totally paid off! I mean, look at these shots! Not only are Stephen & Victoria cute as can be, but the snow added into all of their photos gives them a dream-like feel that had us swooning.

Victoria & Stephen had their first date at 23rd & Main in downtown Richmond, so it was only appropriate that did a portion of their engagement session there. When asked about how the first date went, Victoria admits she almost didn’t go because she wasn’t feeling well. Fighting a cold, she went anyways and says that they talked for hours. A little over a year of dating later and they were engaged. Victoria and Stephen both have an affinity for wine and traveling. Knowing Stephen’s career in the military, they will surely have many adventures together once they are husband and wife.

This session was another that Michael took on solo, but we made them promise that we’d all get coffee the next time we are in Raleigh. Michael had such a great time roaming the snowy streets of Richmond and Libby Hill Park with these two. Although we’ll have to wait for it, we are so excited for their wedding at the end of this year.

Enjoy!

Anytime we get to venture inside for a shoot, we take the opportunity. As natural light photographers, we spend most of our time outdoors, so being able to shoot in a cozy restaurant by the window added such a cute element to this session. Plus, Victoria and Stephen got to enjoy a glass of wine; what better way to start a session?

Out in the courtyard of the restaurant, the snow was falling in the most cinematic way. So naturally, we asked them to set their wine aside for a moment and to dance.

After wandering the streets that surrounded the restaurant, we ventured over to Libby Hill Park to wrap up the session. At this point, the snow was really coming down, but Victoria and Stephen braved the weather and continued to do their thing.
