Charlottesville Engagement Photographer – A Summer Charlottesville Engagement at The Saunders-Monticello Trail and Riverview Park along the Rivanna River – Charlottesville Engagement Photos
When Lauren told me about the ideas she and Taylor had for their engagement session, I was pretty excited!! They wanted to incorporate some pretty cool ideas that were definitely unique and special to their relationship and reflected their fun-loving, outdoorsy personalities. These two enjoy spending their time together in Charlottesville where their super gorgeous winter wedding at Farmington Country Club is going to be this December (I can’t wait!) and who could blame them? I got to explore some new gorgeous spots that I hadn’t seen yet with them, and I wouldn’t have wanted to spend time with two people other than these sweet loves.
We started at the Saunders-Monticello Trail near Carter Mountain and Taylor and Lauren were ready to go with their hammock for the first round of their super cool personal touches for their session! I’ve never had a couple bring a hammock to their session before, so this was a neat addition, and definitely had me wanting to buy one of my own! What made it even better was how well these two cuddled, always a plus! You can’t have a hammock and not have a snugglefest.
Charlottesville has so much gorgeous scenery, so we were able to take advantage of all the gorgeous woodland areas and flowers, and river nearby as well. Lauren and Taylor showed off their sporty side with some running and braved the somewhat murky river with me for some more adventurous shots (and it was worth it). These two are sweet and adorable beyond compare, and I couldn’t be more excited for their wedding in December!!
