Although the weather is still clinging to winter like temperatures, engagement sessions are in full swing! This past weekend I had the pleasure of finally meeting with Sofia & Ed in Bluemont, VA at Bear’s Den Trail. Originally we had their engagement session scheduled for the weekend before, but due to the damp weather conditions we had to reschedule. Although the weather was clear & sunny, the temperatures were still bitter cold while producing wind gusts while overlooking Bluemont, VA. Needless to say, these two handled it like champs & it resulted in us not venturing out on the overlook for too long. C’mon, Spring weather!
Upon arrival at Bear’s Den in Bluemont, VA, Sofia & Ed first arrived in their formal attire. The way the sun bounced off of Sofia’s metallic dress was simply magical. We had the most gorgeous glow during the entire duration of their portrait time. You would never guess how cold the weather was seeing how these two smiled the entire time! Sofia & Ed had such a playful chemistry about them, & I loved their shared sense of humor while in front of the camera. I think at one point Ed said that Sofia was shaking like a Chihuahua from shivering so much from the cold! Ed’s comment to Sofia cracked me up, and resulted in being a joke for the remainder of their session. Needless to say, you couldn’t even tell that Sofia was freezing! These two were naturals in front of the camera.
Once Sofia & Ed changed into their more casual attire, we ventured through the woods to the famous overlook. Luckily there were no crowds of people, but the wind gusts were just too much as we photographed there. Needless to say we did not stay at the overlook for very long, but we did find another amazing location just up the pathway. I think I actually fell in love with this group of photos more than I did with the ones on the overlook! We had the most beautiful glow & still managed to capture that perfect setting that they were looking for. I love it when my couples are willing to explore with me 🙂 Although our digits were frozen by the end of it, I’d say we ended their session on the best note. Sofia & Ed’s images have me swooning!
Congratulations, Sofia & Ed! I am so excited to capture your special day this November!
