I thoroughly enjoyed this easy, breezy Libby Hill fall engagement photo shoot in Richmond, Virginia. These two wanted simple, casual photos with their adorable, very well behaved pup! Such a pleasure to work with them.

We met at one of my favorite coffee shops, Cafe Zata. A lovely little place in an unexpected location, with tons of great seating in an open but intimate atmosphere. (And yummy snacks and drinks!)

I still get nervous every time I go on a client “blind date”. I shouldn’t be because they almost always go well, but you never know! As soon as I met these two I knew we would be a good fit. My kind of bride for sure, very down to earth, easy going and cares about what’s truly important in a wedding day. I cannot wait to see how it all comes together this fall!

They wanted a mix of urban, Richmond and nature for their engagement shoot so we went to one of my favorite locations, Libby Hill Park. There are so many great places to capture photos here. It’s in a neighborhood, but also a historic location, and a park with amazing views of the RVA skyline.

We started with a short walk down the sidewalk for a few portraits and some shots of that beautiful pup!

If you know me, you know I get SO excited when someone brings along their dog to a photo shoot! I love animals so much, and think it is perfect to make them a part of these memories. And this little lady was seriously the most well behaved dog I think I’ve ever met. No leash in a public place with tons of people around and she stayed right by their side the whole time. Love!

They are the best at laughs and snuggles!

And I’m obsessed with this photo below! It was already perfect enough just to shoot them watching the sun go down, but then when their dog joined them, right by his side, it was almost too much!


Almost always, I schedule shoots around the possibility of getting this warm, glowy sunlight. I get excited every time it works out! Perfect pretty light 🙂

Congrats to these two! I’m so looking forward to shooting your wedding in September!!


Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

I hope you enjoyed the photos. If you live in the Virginia, Maryland, DC area (or if you don’t!) I’d be honored to capture some memories for you!
