The Virginia Arboretum | Boyce, Virginia

I have to start with the fact that this sweet couple were really good sports about the weather- even though it was a beautiful day for portraits, the weather for mid-August in Virginia was HOT. I can tell you I was sweating- honest truth. :) But we all pushed through, and the end result yielded gorgeous portraits.

Also, Amanda's dress?! How gorgeous is that dress!

The Virginia Arboretum provided plenty of variety in terms of natural background, which made the couple pop even more. The flora and fauna made for soft and romantic photos, as well. If you know anything about me, you know I love my florals... on everything possible.

The Arboretum is one of my favorite places to photograph at in Virginia, and I'm so grateful for couples like Eric and Amanda that put 100% trust in me and the vision I want to bring forth for them.

I'm looking forward to their wedding this year, and cannot wait to celebrate with them.
