It’s always such an honor when you get to photograph a couple multiple times from the proposal, to the engagement session and an engagement party as well! You get to be a part of their lives and capture all the joy and excitement for them to remember years down the road. I know Surabhi from the bhangra circuit from a couple of years ago and then her younger sister, Pallavi, who is Virginia di Shaan’s current captain. It’s pretty fun when my bhangra & photo worlds collide and I was so excited to meet Anish back in November because I’d heard so much about him from Pallavi. I loved getting to work with him and Pallavi and he mapped out EXACTLY where all he’d be walking Surabhi during their stroll around Virginia Tech before he proposed to her in front of the Pylons with all of their family & friends below!
We got to spend more time together this week taking their engagement portraits at Stone Tower Winery! Stone Tower is one of my absolute favorites and I love how all my sessions there tend to be more laid back and feels like I’m taking photos of friends over wine. These two have been together for OVER seven years and seeing them interact with each other during their portraits you can tell that above all, they’re best friends first! And now they’re officially ENGAGED and planning a wedding for December! Also, I’m super pumped to be able to capture their engagement party which is going to be filled with all of their friends and family in May! Those are always super fun to capture since you get to see JUST how loved they are among everyone and I know it’s going to be a fun filled party 🙂
Thanks you two for letting me capture these portraits! I know it took some rescheduling for Virginia weather but it was so worth it!! I can’t wait to celebrate with you guys this upcoming May and you guys are going to be married before you know it this December!!
