Craig & Erica Spring Engagement | Warrenton, Virginia Photographer

It was just about time for the sun to peak over the foggy horizon when Craig, Erica and I met up. Getting up at 5 a.m. sounds painful … but really, by the time the session starts, you forget that you had to wake up super early. And gosh, the lighting is just amazing at that hour with the fog and mistiness of the environment! I would say it is so worth it! And what I loved about this session is that it was exactly one year away from their special day! We all know that between now and then will fly by fast! We have seasoned sessions planned throughout this year with doing a summer, fall and winter themed engagement sessions … so this is going to be a fun year ahead! πŸ™‚ Looking forward to getting to know these two very well by the time their wedding comes! πŸ™‚

Here is a preview of their garden themed engagement session! Enjoy! xoxo

    Stephanie, you did such an amazing job with the pre-wedding, and wedding pics for Jess and Derek Dawson, that I knew, when Erica told me she and Craig were having their seasonal pre-wedding sessions with you, that they would be amazing. You’ve out-done yourself. You’ve captured the very essence that IS Erica and Craig. Thank you so much, and I am very much looking forward to the pics from the next session! πŸ™‚
