When Cristen & CJ brought up the idea of going to a local park that they frequented throughout their relationship, we were all for it. Lone Star Lakes Park in Suffolk, VA proved to be the perfect backdrop for their sweet engagement session and it was all but deserted the day of the session, which we also appreciated. Although we live in Suffolk, we had never been to this particular park, but I have a feeling we’ll be back in the future. There were so many beautiful trees in all different colors and views of the lakes that are to die for. We loved spending time with Cristen & CJ during their Lone Star Lakes engagement session.
Cristen & CJ were referred to us by a past bride of ours and we couldn’t be more thankful for the referral (thanks Ashley!) because we hit it off right from the start. They are so authentic, funny and sweet to one another that it made photographing them together super easy. Not to mention that Cristen & CJ have been together for over 8 years now. It’s clear to see when they are together that they bring out the best in one another and we loved capturing their natural interactions on camera. We’re honored they chose us to capture their big day next year and we can’t wait to see these two again!
Please enjoy some highlights from Cristen & CJ’s Lone Star Lakes engagement session in Suffolk, VA!
Right before we lost the sun completely, we rushed over to where Lone Star Lakes Park had a cotton field and tried our best to capture as many images as we could before the sky went completely dark. Our time here was limited, but this location is where Cristen wanted photos the most, so we’re glad we got to capture some keepers for them.
