Erika and Kashawn are high school sweethearts, so when they asked me to photograph them, I knew the session would be fun and that their chemistry would be so beautiful!
And I was right, they were so fun to photograph and were natural models. It was an honor to capture their beauty and love for one another.
Ivy Creek Natural Area is so beautiful and convenient for Charlottesville residents. It is STUNNING in the spring and summer months, but like the rest of nature, everything dies in the winter. So, I was worried about this in our photos. Turns out I happen to LOVE dead branches and the red/brown tones it gives off lol The back drop wasn't an "ideal" one for most, but if you play the light correctly, everything just falls so beautifully behind your subject. Plus the tall grass is just an amazing area for pictures, and your clients just POP. Give Ivy Creek a try, and don't fear shooting something challenging and different!
