I always tell my brides and grooms, "Choose a place that resonates with you. Either a place you've been to a billion times because you just love to go there together, maybe where he proposed, or somewhere that just makes you go, 'Yeah! I really want photos done here.'" Choosing your engagement session location is not ONLY about how beautiful it is, because there is beauty to be found everywhere.
After some thought, Christie and Mike fell in love with the beautiful Great Falls park. We opted for the Virginia side for tonight's golden hour engagement session. This was a double golden hour session. Seriously, Christie is so phenomenally beautiful, it's not even funny. Toward the end of the session, as the sunset painted it's beautiful pastel colors over the falls, I realized, "Christie! You look like a sunset!"
Okay, more about how beautiful Christie is and how much fun Mike was to have around later. Until their full engagement session is up on the blog, here's their sneak peek.
I just have to point out Mike's incredibly sweet gift he gave to his bride-to-be, Christie. Christie loves games (I knew I liked this girl!) and so he got her a handmade wooden tic-tac-toe game. Isn't that amazing?!
Stop what you're doing and admire Christie's natural beauty. Seriously. Wasn't I right people? She looks like a sunset! I am beside myself excited to see what she looks like on her wedding day!
These gorgeous lovebirds have more photos coming their way. (That last photo just kills me - her eyes and his expression are perfection!) I'm going to get some rest, but as you can see, these photos are too good not to share immediately ;)
