Engagement Session – Melissa & Jon
Are you getting engaged? Are you looking for a creative engagement session? Contact us today.
Melissa and Jon are engaged. We were excited to photograph their engagement pictures. Jon’s family owns property in Urbanna, Virginia. When they asked if we could travel to do their engagement session, we were excited. We always love exploring new areas. We love photographing destination weddings and destination photo sessions.
The property where these engagement pictures were taken, is where their wedding reception would be held. It is property located on a historic horse race track.
Urbanna, Virginia Historic Race Track
This historic horse race track. was the home of many Kentucky Derby race horses. It originated in the 1920s. Many horses were bred and trained here. One of the most famous race horses that was raised on this farm was Sun Beau. You can learn more about him here.
The property was as amazing as Melissa and Jon. We love to photograph engagement sessions. When we photograph couples in an area that has history,we love it even more! The area was full of vacant horse stables. These structures were absolutely stunning. Almost as stunning as Melissa and Jon.
Outdoor Engagement Session
Photographing outdoor engagement sessions always offers a variety of backgrounds. This especially happens when you are on a farm in Urbanna, Virginia. We always are looking for a variety of back grounds and settings. This farm was full of creative back drops and scenery.
Scott’s background comes from landscape photography. He has a love for beautiful landscapes. When we are photographing an portrait sessions we are always looking for things that we can compose in the foreground. Adding interest in the foreground of your subject creates added interest in your images. It also helps our clients remember exactly where they were and how they felt at the time the shutter snaps.
Many of our engaged couples are pet owners of some very special pets. We love to incorporate pets into our portrait sessions. Whether it is an engagement session, high school senior portrait session or family session, including your pet creates lasting memories. Meet Melissa and Jon’s beautiful Basset Hounds. They were like models. They did great on their first official photo shoot! Wait until you see their adorable wedding cake topper! It is a replica of these two precious puppies.
Sunset Engagement Session
We love scheduling our portrait sessions around the golden hour. In photography the golden hour would be one hour prior to sunset. By photographing a portrait session during that hour you are almost guaranteed great light. Great light is everything to creating a great portrait.
Melissa and Jon have an amazing pier that sets on the river. As you can see, a combination of a beautiful couple, beautiful light and a beautiful setting creates beautiful portraits!
We are excited to post images from Melissa and Jon’s amazing wedding. Check back soon to view that post.
