Who would have ever thought that in late July we would have such beautiful, cool, low humidity weather? It was the perfect evening for Lindsay & Thad's engagement session in Richmond VA along the canal. They were a fun, down-to-earth, and amazing couple! I'm very excited for Lindsay & Thad's September wedding at the Petersburg Country Club! No doubt it will be just as beautiful an event as their engagement session was.
I know I've said this time and time again, but I have been so fortunate to work with very relaxed, good spirited couples who completely trust my vision and are willing to go off the beaten path sometimes with me and the results are always the same. Nothing shy of A-Mazing!!! Lindsay didn't think twice about kicking off her shoes and climbing out onto some rocks. She didn't even hesitate when I asked her to balance and walk along the railroad tracks with her heels on! I must say I was very impressed. Anything I asked them to do or try they were more than willing. Like when I was walking by what looked like a pile of dirt blown into the corner of some stairs and asked Lindsay to hand over her ring. Oh yes I was planning on putting it into the pile of dirt. She took it off and gladly gave it to me and I'm so glad she did! You'll see the results in the pictures below.
Lindsay also had some ideas of her own along the way which I love! I have been to the Canal Walk countless times and love that I found some new spots that turned out to be great backdrops for a photo shoot.
I'm also looking forward to meeting Savannah, Thad's 10-year-old daughter, and getting her in front of my camera. Kids are always so much fun to photograph at weddings and I'm told she is a natural and really loves turning on the charm when the camera is out. Sounds like my kinda gal!
Congratulations Lindsay & Thad, here's hoping for the same beautiful, cool low humidity weather we had for your engagement session!
Thanks Lindsay for trusting me with your ring and my idea to stick it in what looked like a pile of dirt!
