When Grace told me she wanted to do engagement photos at her parent’s house, I wasn’t expecting this! Their Virginia estate made the perfect backdrop for some romantic portraits! Grace and John are planning a very intimate wedding this fall at the Inn at Little Washington with only a few friends and immediate family. Since these two are easy-going and sentimental, they wanted to celebrate their engagement with a backdrop that was close to their hearts. We even got their puppy in for a few snaps!
It’s hard to believe that these were taken all in one location! John drove us all around the rolling acres and operated the Gator like a pro. We talked all about wedding day and the history of the property! The Radigans are considering hosting smaller weddings at this glorious location and it’s easy to see why! Stunning overlooks, a lakeside view and ancient trees made this session one of my personal favorites! Here are some of my favorite snaps from Grace and John’s Virginia summer engagement session.
