Blue Ridge Parkway Engagement Session | Jessica & Vanessa

Couple during an engagement session on the Blue Ridge Parkway. 

I had the best time adventuring around Rough Ridge with these two for these photos. Engagement sessions are invaluable in that they let me get to know my clients a little better instead of showing up on their wedding day essentially a stranger, and it's a great opportunity to document this special time in a couple's life. 

Sometimes I'll ask people questions about their relationship that they'll answer with their partner in an effort to keep everyone present and allow me to document natural emotion and dynamics as it unfolds. Both Jessica and Vanessa weighed their answers carefully and answered in the most genuine, heartfelt way.  

I can't wait to celebrate with them for their big day in April!
