Often throughout the year I get asked, “when is the best time for sessions?” or I get a specific request for an engagement session only in the fall because of the perception it is the best time of year. I’ll be honest, I do think Virginia in the fall close to Heaven on Earth but what I have found over the past ten years photographing sessions is that any time of year is beautiful! Emily and Patrick’s engagement session is pure proof that we live in beautiful country and even January and February is perfect for an engagement session. The winter light is soft, the skies are delicate and if you are lucky enough you might even have snow! Our first session date in January turned into a mini session in the snow and we captured the rest two weeks later in February. The second part of their session was completed just outside their home, around the lake where they got engaged with their adorable Riley. We finished at Roxabel where they are going to be married early this fall. I just cannot wait to capture the wedding day of Emily and Patrick in September. They are both so easy to work with and so in love!
