As the summer weather begins to cool and our fall wedding season begins, we back to shooting some beautiful engagement sessions for our 2017 & 2018 couples. Last weekend, we had the pleasure of meeting up with Shayna & Oliver in Richmond and shooting their sweet engagement session at Byrd Park and Rocketts Landing boat docks. As four people who don’t live in Richmond, we had quite the time finding each other amidst the one-way roads but once we did, we had a great time wandering the park together for their session. Shayna & Oliver feel like dear friends, as we met them years ago for the first time at Shayna’s sorority’s spring formal. We can’t wait to shoot their beautiful wedding come October!
Take a look at some of our favorite shots from their engagement session!

During most engagement sessions, we ask our couples to dance. Sometimes, they jump right into it and surprise us. Other times, we offer a quick dance lesson and then watch as they giggle and laugh with one another as they attempt “the spin.” If wedding photography ever slows for us, we may start offering dance lessons 😉
After wandering around Byrd Park for a bit, we made our way down to the docks at Rocketts Landing. Oliver has an affinity for the boats and water and so we knew that we wanted to end the session where he loves to be.
Right before we had used up almost every bit of what the sun had to offer us, we decided to add just a few silhouette shots, which we haven’t done in awhile. We love how these came out!
