I had the best time walking around the University of Richmond with these two for their sweet Richmond engagement session! Sarah & Matt traveled down from Boston, MA to visit us here in Richmond and to document their engagement with a portrait session. They are getting married next year up in Gloucester, Massachusetts and I cannot wait to document their beautiful wedding day.
We began Sarah & Matt's session in front of the lake at the University of Richmond, right outside of the Tyler Hanes Commons. I love that these two brought along Sophie, their mini doodle pup, for some photos together with her. Including pets in your engagement or family session is such a great way to get some real laughter and smiles. Next we walked through the woods, did a quick outfit change, and walked over to the Westhampton commons. The light was perfect in front of the The Booker Hall of Music. We finished up their UR engagement session near North Court, where the arches are such a neat architectural feature.
Even early in the morning, the summer days can get so hot and humid here in Richmond! It's ideal to meet closer to sunrise, to beat the heat and to take advantage of the lovely, early morning light...! I so enjoyed photographing these two (...three! ;) and it's always a treat to shoot on such a beautiful, serene college campus!
