Ashley and Justin | Charlottesville Sweetheart Session

Happy Friday, friends!

I don’t know about you, but I’m really excited about having some warmer temperatures this weekend. I’m anxiously awaiting spring weather, especially after shooting this adorable sweetheart session while it was 20 degrees out. It was cold and windy, but Ashley and Justin still managed to get in front of the camera and look picture perfect!

Ashley is the president of OneWay, a chapter of UVA’s InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and Justin attends Liberty University. You know I have a soft spot for couples who love the Lord! They are one of those couples that everyone is always rooting for because they’re both so gracious and a joy to be around; I loved seeing their smiles light up from just joking around with each other during the session. Since Justin came to visit Ashley and escort her to Black Ball (check out her gorgeous dress!), we decided a quick sweetheart session was absolutely necessary, despite the frigid cold. Luckily, Justin was the perfect gentleman – always grabbing Ashley’s coat to keep her warm while I was changing lenses or switching locations. So sweet!

I’m so glad I got them in front of my camera because these are some of my favorite sweetheart session photos to date. I can’t get over how great they managed to look despite all of our cold fingers and the huge gusts of wind. Also, UVA’s Darden School worked as an excellent background for their shoot because I wanted a subtle backgrounds so that all eyes could be on them. I mean, LOOK at her them, their perfect!
