engagement photography virginia

Talk about two beautiful souls. I had the pleasure of photographing Sumeet + Jobin’s Virginia engagement right before sunset- giving us tthhee besstt light. These two could not have picked a more romantic setting for their session. We chased that golden light all around those tall grass fields, playing and laughing along the way. They were up for whatever. It makes your photos so much more meaningful when they are you two being you, instead of super stiff cheese- at-the-camera kind of poses. Sumeet + Jobin will be saying their vows in India later this year! what what! Outfits were on point as we ventured out to the National Battlefield Park in Manassas, Virgina for their engagement photos. Sumeet’s henna was just the most incredible thing. I love love all of the details and the special quality it adds to their photos.

Side note, I feel like so many people have no idea what to wear for their engagement sessions. I think florals are the bomb, especially in a natural environment that creates a pretty simple background. Sumeet + Jobin’s attire is definitely something to showcase! The trick is that you want to be comfortable in your outfits but you don’t want it to be distracting and take away the focus from you two. Neutrals are the way to go! Now, this does not mean just black, white, or grey- as you can see. Every color has a neutral. Mustard is a neutral of yellow while navy and denim are neutrals for blue. Reds you want to stay away from as the color will be reflected so this means that they will make your partner’s face look pink! When you look at your photos you want to focus right on you two, your relationship and not be distracted by a neon green shirt = )
