Although the rain we’ve been getting recently in Hampton Roads caused us to reschedule their shoot once, we finally got Lauren & Zach in front of our cameras for their engagement session last Friday. It was the perfect evening to wander through First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach, VA and we had a great time getting to know these two. Lauren & Zach frequent this beautiful park to go runs together, so we thought it would be a great place to go for the first portion of their engagement session.
Although Lauren & Zach swore that they had never had professional pictures taken before, you would never guess it from their photos. The connection between these two was undeniable and we found ourselves saying, “Wait! Do that again!” so many times throughout their session. Zach brings out a smile in Lauren that is so genuinely happy that you can tell she is smitten with her future husband. At the end of their session, we loved hearing that they had a lot of fun with us because we enjoyed our time with them.
Best wishes, you two!
After wandering around First Landing State Park, we made our way across the street to the beach. Although we’re on the east coast, the way the Chesapeake Bay curves around gives us in Virginia Beach a glimpse at the sunset over the water. Ending a session with a sunset over the ocean is always blissful.
Although the clouds seen below decided to swoop in and cover the setting sun, we still got to enjoy the golden, orange tones right before we ended the session.
