Lauren and Tom’s engagement session was filled with wide open orchards, mountain views, apple picking, flower gardens and TONS of Virginia humidity! It was my first peek at some Fall colors and clear skies! This adorable duo made the trek all the way from Florida for their engagement session, and met with a few other vendors along the way!

After months of emailing back and forth I was so excited to finally meet Lauren and Tom! They were bit nervous to be in front of the camera the first time, but 2 clicks in they were pros! Tom knows just how to make Lauren laugh and they weren’t afraid to get a little muddy to get the perfect backdrop! Not to mention their outfits were on point… Lauren’s flowy floral dress, paired perfectly with our colorful fall backdrop! We had so much fun getting to know each other, chatting about wedding details and exploring Chiles Orchard!

The best part was when we finished taking pictures to finally get a break in the AC… Lauren and Tom were so relieved and excited by the easy process they said “ We can’t wait to do it again!” Which is seriously any photographers dream when you can find a couple that LOVES to be in front of the camera!

Their wedding next spring at Keswick Vineyards seems so far away but I know the next few months will fly by! Who knows you might even see these two again on the blog if we can find a way to meet up to photograph their hound dog Henry! EHHK.

I Hope you enjoy the first peek of Fall, and my favorite photo below. This patch of wild flowers was FULL of butterflies, and they weren’t camera shy at all!
