mary beth + hunter | shawsville, va engagement


From the minute I met these two, I felt like I was with old friends!  We got carried away in conversation immediately, and chatted about everything from wedding plans to our fur kids!  🙂  Mary Beth and Hunter have been together over four years, but their story started even before then!  Their families went to church together for years, and they even went to the same high school.  But it wasn’t until a mutual friend invited them both to an event at her home one night that a spark ignited, and you could say, “the rest is history.”  🙂

We had perfect weather for their engagement session at Alta Mons Camp in Shawsville, and I loved having the opportunity to see more of how these two love each other.  Hunter makes her laugh without even having to try, and Mary Beth settles in so easily when he wraps her up in big bear hugs!  I think it’s so easy to see how well these two fit together, and I’m so excited to share some of my favorites from their session with y’all!

This first one is one of my absolute favorites!  So quiet and romantic! <3


I LOVE this next shot!  y’all, the light in this spot was kind of magical.


Mary Beth’s ring is gorgeous!!  (and don’t you just love the fall colors on those leaves??)


I love how natural and sweet this next shot is!


Love, love, love the fall colors in this next shot – between their outfits and the glowy leaves, it’s perfect!


I love twirling shots like this next one on the right. 🙂


I love a sweet slow dance.  🙂


I have to end with one of those big bear hugs – because it’s so them, and that makes it my favorite!


Mary Beth and Hunter, thank you for the opportunity to be part of this sweet season with y’all!  I am so excited for your wedding in June!!
