A Summer Sunset Engagement Session at the College of William + Mary | Williamsburg, Virginia
The weather and light was absolutely perfect on Saturday evening in Williamsburg for an engagement shoot. Kara and Josh are so much fun to be around, and we laughed throughout their entire shoot that started on campus and ended in adjoining Colonial Williamsburg. I love shooting on the campus of William and Mary, mainly because the muted neutrals of the buildings and the abundance of green trees give me my ideal color palette. There are also so many locations to choose from that I am never at a loss for new photo ideas!
As I hinted at in my Instagram post a few days ago - Kara and Josh brought their two dogs to the shoot! And yes, it was probably the best part (sorry guys!!) Beau and Jax stole the show in my book, complete with kisses and bowties! However, I really did love hearing about this couple's story that started right here on campus! The two of them met while Kara was in grad school and Josh was in undergrad. Kara said she was trying to find a place to watch World Cup soccer, and her friend Morgan told her to get in touch with these guys that she knew. As Josh said, “she walked into the house with a USA shirt and booty shorts” and he was sold. Kara being an introvert, it was very unlike her to walk into a house full of people that she didn’t know, and she still can't believe she did it! However, I’m pretttty sure that she’s glad that she did!!
These two share a love for soccer and dogs, and they now live in Georgia as Kara gets her Ph.D. (get it, girl!!) Their wedding is at the end of July at the Women’s Club of Portsmouth and it’s going to be amazing!! A big shout out to Kara’s bridesmaid Miranda for wrangling the dogs for us!
Josh - you're a natural at this!
I'm so in love with this! The couple AND the light!!
The two most important participants!!! Jax and Beau!!!
Seriously? They shared the sweetest little kisses!
Someone get them a modeling contract ASAP.
Beau and Jax took Miranda on quite a walk!! Miranda, you're a trooper!

"Oh look, it's a green bean tree!!"
