I’ve known Leah for just over two years now- she was my manager during my time in the corporate world. I remember the first time I heard of this “Chris” guy, who I more formally came to know as “the boy.” It was fun watching how happy he made Leah. Being in love with the right person changes you, and that change was evident in Leah. She was more smiley than usual, more bubbly, and it was such a joy to witness. Though my first time meeting Chris was during our session last Saturday, it’s clear she’s had the same effect on him. I loved watching him smile at her, never complaining when I asked them to kiss for the hundredth time or when I asked for his very best GQ face. He was just happy to be there with Leah, loving and laughing with her.
Chris & Leah, thank you so much for meeting me at such an early hour to document your love! I had such a good time getting to know you both and it really was my joy to photograph you two. I hope you love these images as much as I loved creating them!
We began at dawn in Middleburg…
That beautiful, golden morning light!!
Hey Leah? You’re really, really beautiful. REALLY.
Love!! See what I mean? The way he smiles at her!
After a quick outfit change, we brought Chris & Leah’s puppies into the frame. Meet Oliver the French bulldog and Jackie the Chesapeake Bay retriever!
I don’t know why, but that shot of Ollie on the right makes me laugh.
One of my favorites!
Favorite. Hands down.
