I met Andrea my first year through a mutual friend and actually ended up being apartment mates with her my second year in Bice 502! I was super excited when she asked me to take a couple of pictures for her LinkedIn profile this past Friday afternoon. It was a great fall day and the lighting near the Rotunda was perfect! We started near the Rotunda and made our way to the columns near Lawn Rooms and back to a spot that I had scouted out on the way to the shoot! Here  a couple of my favorites from the day 🙂

I’m so glad that the Rotunda has been restored and I’ve definitely been taking advantage of it for pictures! Also how gorgeous is her class ring?! I’m excited to have mine come in November!

I had scouted out this one spot on the way over to take her pictures and asked if we could try taking pictures in this one spot. When we got there, the lighting was perfect!! We took a couple of shots and immediately loved them in camera.

We ended up taking the last couple of pictures with Andrea’s sunglasses which was super fun 🙂 I loved that we got to end with a couple of fun pictures!
