Mark and Amanda’s Engagement Session

Its always a treat to get to shoot an Engagement Session in a location that is totally new to me. In Mark and Amanda’s case it happened to be part of their family property. It was a beautiful day, and the weather totally cooperated.

We started off and got warmed up in this nice clearing near their cabin.

Afterwards “The Doff’s” wanted to give me a challenge and incorporate their dog into the portrait. I then became qualified to be a pet photographer.

Opie is a good dog, and he behaved better than I originally thought which was an added plus. Having him in the shot definitely seemed to make Amanda even happier than she had already started off with.

There was a barn slightly down the dirt road which I just had to incorporate into the shoot somehow.

We even decided to reenact Mark’s proposal as the sun started to set.

and as we were walking back I noticed that the gravel road in Luray seemed to make a beautiful light arch through the trees.
