Ariana & Raul | Newport News, VA Engagement

Ariana and Raul had a vision for their engagement photos and I *think* we nailed it!  They wanted ‘sophisticated’ and ‘dramatic’ with architectural elements incorporated into their images.  The outfits they selected were spot on for their vision and absolutely lended themselves to the location we chose.  Christopher Newport University is such a gorgeous campus and worked beautifully for their photos!  I had so much fun trying this different style photo shoot for them and would totally do this again!  They were both so sweet and such a blast to work with.  Meanwhile during the session, I was getting crazy bug bites while Raul was fighting severe allergies, but it was all so worth it.

Random fun fact about these two… Ariana works for a realtor on the Peninsula and Raul IS a realtor on the Peninsula… so they both know a thing or two about real estate!

I’m so sad we have to wait a whole year for their wedding, but looking forward to their day in August 2020!!!
