rachel + matt | pearisburg, va engagement


I love shooting sessions in new places, and I really love shooting sessions in locations that are significant to the couple or family I am with!  So I was all for it when Rachel and Matt said they wanted to have their engagement session on property that Matt’s family owns out in Pearisburg…  and it was definitely the right decision!  There were endless wooded hideaways for us to shoot in, and we even took a few frames down by the stream that runs through the property!  And towards the end of our session, we had the most gorgeous glowy sunlight shining through the fall leaves!

But really, the best part about this session was how easily these two seemed to forget that there was a camera pointed at them.  They would nuzzle in close and be totally in the moment, and friends, that is the BEST!  Just see for yourselves… enjoy some of my favorites from this oh-so-romantic fall engagement session!


Loved Rachel’s statement necklace – and of course, that gorgeous ring!  😉


Gah, I loved this leaf-covered, wooded ATV path!  One of my favorite spots from our session!


This next frame is one of my favorites!  If there wasn’t a photo to prove it, you wouldn’t even know a photographer was there… ahh, these two!! <3blacksburg-va-wedding-photographerchristiansburg-va-wedding-photographerchristiansburg-va-anniversary-photographerblacksburg-va-anniversary-photographer

This next one – another favorite!  Love these quiet, romantic moments.


Rachel has some stunning baby blues, doesn’t she?!  SO gorgeous!


The second half of our session was when that buttery, glowy light was in full force!  I mean, how magical does this forest look??blacksburg-va-engagement-photographerradford-va-engagement-photographer

Ahhh, this next one is one of my very favorites from Rachel & Matt’s session!  Don’t you just love how they settled into this moment together?!


We grabbed just a few final frames in this next spot after the sun had dipped below the mountain, but I just love how romantic Rachel & Matt made these woods feel, even to the last few minutes of our session! <3


Rachel, Matt, thank you so much for the privilege of being part of this season with you!  I can’t wait to do this again in May!!
