As a proposal + engagement photographer, 2023 was a blast!
The proposals I had the opportunity to capture this year all took place at wineries and were all perfect days with perfectly executed plans. I love the behind the scenes of a proposal day because there are so many exciting, hush hush, plans that have to go JUST right in order to accomplish the proposal. Not only the proposal planner, but myself as the photographer and the venue contact person all have to be onetime and in place to make the magic happen. And what ties it all together and makes it so joy-filled is the total surprise and excitement on the face of the lucky person being proposed to. I so enjoyed capturing each of these amazing moments. And I am so excited that one of these amazing couples will be tying the knot later this year and I have the opportunity of capturing that next part of their love story.
The engagements this year were incredible, my couples are so fun!! They were all either couples for 2023 weddings or couples for 2024 weddings. I just love taking the time to capture an engagement session for my wedding couples. It gives us a chance to get to know each other better before the wedding. As well as it gives them a chance to get use to ho it feels to be in front of the camera. As you can see below, none of them had any issues having fun and being themselves during the sessions.
Take a look at the quick snapshot of all the awesome couples and live in their joy for a little bit! Thank you all for having me spend some time and capture your moments. As a Proposal + Engagement Photographer you have made me feel so blessed. Shoutout to a few really beautiful venues we were lucky to shoot these proposals and engagement sessions at this past year: Stone Tower Winery, Bluemont Vineyard, Morven Park, downtown Leesburg, and Old Town Alexandria.
