Ashley and Dom were the lucky winners of the FREE Engagement Session raffle Peggy and I held at the Greater Virginia Bridal Show in the Hospitality House, in Fredericksburg this past June. They are an incredibly sweet couple and it was a lot of fun trekking around Downtown Fredericksburg with them during their session. Ashley and Dom were one of those couples that say they're shy but open up after a just few minutes in front of the camera. Of course it usually does take a few lame jokes on my part to help that process along but nevertheless, they quickly forgot I was there and, at least from my point of view, had a great time together in a beautiful setting. We had planned on going to a nearby battlefield location for the second half of the session but decided to climb up the side of the Fredericksburg National Cemetery to finish the session with a few photos of them in a more landscape setting. I thought both the downtown and the serene setting images came out great. The sun was setting perfectly over Mary Washington University's playing fields just onto the crest of the field we ended up on and the warm, golden light was perfect for a few backlit images of Ashley and Dom sitting next to one another enjoying each others company. Next summer they will be getting married at one of my favorite venues, Old House Vineyard and we are incredibly excited that they have asked us to photograph their wedding as well. I can't wait to hang out with them and meet their families next summer. They are such sweethearts!!!
