Ruby & Tyler

An engagement session in the heart of Church hill, Richmond

Ruby & Tyler have known each other for a 15 years. They met as classmates, then were high school sweethearts, just friends in college, pen pals post grad, to a rekindled romance, to roommates, to soon to be married!

Their engagement session was shot in Church hill. Ruby knew exactly where she wanted photos to take place, and even sent me a map of all of the locations! We started at this brick wall, moved to a woodsy area, a pink garage door, and ended up at one of their favorite bars. It was a whole adventure that we somehow shoved into an hour. One of my favorite parts of the shoot was that Ruby brought some wine!!

Ruby’s favorite date happened on the first valentine’s day that they lived together. They stayed home, bought really nice wine, and steaks. They both cooked the best steaks they’ve ever had in their cute little apartment, enjoying each other’s company. Sometimes, it really it about the simple things.

Tyler’s favorite date was their first date after Ruby moved back from France. Tyler look her to a little tapas place called Bar Pintxo. Even though it was so casual, he thought Ruby looked so beautiful (which isn’t hard to do for Ruby!).

 This was just a pink garage we walked by but some of my favorite photos from that night were taken right in front of it!

Also, Ruby & Tyler wanted a moodier feel to their engagement session. This isn’t my normal style of shooting & editing but oh man I loved the outcome of it! I might have to do a few more sessions like this…

Congratulations Tyler & Ruby, I CANNOT wait to shoot your wedding in 2019!
