"We Heart Richmond" Styled Engagement Session

Richmond Virginia Engagement Session

I see styled weddings all the time. It's basically the #1 wedding vendor hobby. The thought process goes "I'm bored, let's plan a fake wedding and make it supa pretty." But I don't see too many styled engagement sessions. And honestly, when Nicole from Lettier Studio, suggested one to me, I wasn't sure what could be styled. Well, I learned a lot! And hopefully this will inspire brides to think creatively about not just their wedding, but their engagement session too!

Nicole and I were sitting on the floor in my living room brainstorming styled shoot ideas (but really, playing with my new puppy), trying to think of a "theme." We realized we didn't want a theme-y theme. We just wanted to highlight some of the awesome things about living where we live in Richmond. I know that personally, not many of my clients are sure where they want an engagement session. And if they know they want it in Richmond, they aren't sure exactly where. I think this engagement session offers a lot of inspiration for local brides who really want to highlight their hometown... and if you're not local to Richmond, why it's an awesome place to do your session anyway! ;)

This was a long day. Our models, who won the "We Heart Richmond" giveaway, were absolute rock stars. They were positive and smiling the entire time and I was just so grateful to have a sweet young couple to work with all day. Hannah, Sam, you two were amazing!

A huge thank you to all of the vendors involved in this styled Richmond engagement session. We couldn't have done it without them!
