I absolutely loved this winter Manassas Battlefield engagement shoot with Lauren and Zach. This shoot was a fun one for me because Lauren’s sister Paige is one of my brides as well. Paige actually would have been a past couple by now normally but because of Covid, her full wedding is in 2021, along with Lauren’s. Two sisters getting married in the same year — love it! Their family is SO sweet and working with them throughout the last year or two has been a blast. I am so thankful that I now get to be a part of Lauren and Zach’s wedding too. I knew Lauren would be sweet if she was Paige’s sister but getting to know her a bit better at their engagement session just a few weeks ago proved that once and for all.
This is one of the few winter engagement sessions I will do this year. Sometimes winter sessions can be brutal but since they’re sending out save the dates soon, we ended up going for it! It was a little chilly out but the location was so cool and it was all worth the numb hands we had at the end! I had actually shot at Manassas Battlefield once before so I knew the location was great. As a photographer, any time there’s a giant field, it’s always fun for me! It offers space to move around and the light always ends up being nice late in the evening without any trees blocking the sun. We started this shoot down by the bridge which was super unique and I was surprised by how blue the water was! Then we drove up to the main park entrance and finished there.
The countdown is officially on for this November, 2021 wedding and I cannot wait!
