Every Engagement Session Needs This Flower Crown

If there’s one thing we love, it’s a good floral crown. And this engagement session? Filled with all the things we L.O.V.E. A blooming halo of heavenly blooms complimented and a sweeter than sweet couple, we’ve got all that and more from Nikki Santerre Photography waiting for you in The Vault!

From Nikki Santerre PhotographySwannanoa Palace has something hauntingly romantic about it that radiates from the structure. When Jessica and Colby decided on this location for their engagement session, I knew it would be the perfect venue. The marble dates back to the Italian Renaissance era, each piece brought over individually and carefully placed. It reminds me so much of Jessica and Colby’s story…classic love built with intention and gentleness over time.

These images are filled with a sweet intimacy as Jessica and Colby soak up every moment together this Spring. Colby is deploying in May, and they both are looking forward to his safe return home for their 2017 wedding celebration.

See How One Couple Involved Their Puppy in The Engagement Shoot

I’ve had the unique pleasure of visiting Pippin Hill Farm and let me tell you, it’s my happy place. So it’s kind of a no-brainer that couples flock to this divine establishment to relish no only to delicious food and refreshments, but also their pup friendly property. Which was perfect for this sweet pair, for they invited the talented Kim Stockwell Photography to captured their e-sesh with one special guest in mind. Their dear dog Dixie. More in The Vault!

From Kim Stockwell PhotographyChristina & Andrew have a fall wedding in Richmond Virginia planned but they knew they wanted to schedule an engagement session as soon as possible that would include their beloved dog Dixie. Sadly Dixie is terminally ill and may not be there for their big day, so capturing her was extremely important to them. We focused on a relaxed dog friendly engagement session at the gorgeous Pippin Hill in Charlottesville, Va. Christina arrived looking stunning in a perfectly tailored dress & Andrew was causal yet refined in a salmon button down with khakis. Christina & Andrew sat on a blanket on the hill & enjoyed their wine as Dixie laid next to them enjoying the gorgeous weather we had. It was the perfect day that provided the most beautiful images for them to treasure their sweet Dixie.
