It's always nice when couples can incorporate some of their lives or some of their story into their engagement photos. I particularly enjoy visiting the spots where my couples got engaged and that's exactly where we went for Amelia and Javier's engagement session. Barrel Oak Winery, out in Delaplane, VA, was, by far, the most dog-friendly vineyard I have ever seen - the place was "littered" (haha, get it?) with canines. So we mostly ignored them all and soaked up the beautiful countryside. Aaaaaand sometimes the best light is in the nastiest-looking part of the scene - like when I made them duck under this concrete loading dock. Amelia and Javier are getting married next month at an abandoned girls' school! So many exciting times for a photographer. Congratulations, you guys! See you soon!
