Matt & Shannon Engagement | Old House Vineyards, Old Town Culpeper, Virginia Photographer

Matt, Shannon and I met bright and early Sunday morning to finally have their engagement session! I have had to reschedule so many sessions this summer due to thunderstorms in the evening time last month and the month prior. It does make it tricky to reschedule, but my clients and I always find a way to make it work for our schedules. 🙂 And I am SO glad we were able to fit in their engagement session before their wedding NEXT MONTH! Eeep! I’m so excited about their big day as it is approaching fast! 🙂

Of course during their engagement session, I just had to ask again how their proposal happened because I just think it is so cute! Matt snuck Shannon into their high school football field, where he had a friend taking photos behind the bleachers. After goofing off on the field, he took her to the center and cued their friends to drop down a banner, asking in big letter “Will you marry me?”. Of course she said YES!!! And now they are busy planning last minute details for their big day in September! 🙂

Enjoy the preview of their lovely vineyard/old town session! Cannot wait for your wedding day next month! xoxo
