I met Grace and Cuong just a little over 2 weeks ago over lattes and coffee- and less than a week later we were in Richmond surrounded by beautiful fall light and colors for their engagement session! I get super excited for engagement sessions… especially when it involves a picnic under the trees complete with izzes and brie, and an incredibly sweet couple like these two.
From the beginning of our first meeting- it was clear the level the enthusiasm these two have for their wedding day- we talked and talked…and could have talked for hours. Their enthusiasm immediately became my enthusiasm, I am genuinely THRILLED for these two, and all that’s in store for them. Grace and Cuong have been dating since high school- are the truest of friends, and watching them together is an awesome picture of how wonderful their marriage will be.
Cuong proposed to his best friend (that’d be Grace!) on a beautiful day in August in one of their favorite places, Maymont Park. So, last Friday, we headed back to the scene for their engagement session. Grace and Cuong planned the sweetest picnic, we picked a gigantic tree-of-life-esque tree, laughed and enjoyed sweet treats, and then wandered around the gorgeous property that is Maymont. It was the best time- and a day that left me so joy-filled that it’s certain to last until their wonderful wedding day next September!
Grace and Cuong- thanks for exploring (hiking at points!), laughing, and spending the day with me last Friday! And thank you THANK YOU for trusting me to capture this sweet time in your lives- you two are so dear!
