Heather and Orion Engagement Session | Charlottesville Wedding Photographer
Last weekend, I traveled to the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville for Heather and Orion’s engagement session! It was so nice getting to see them again, and getting to chat and catch up. I haven’t seen them since January, and we’ve just been waiting for some warmer weather for their engagement session! It didn’t end up being THAT much warmer, but it was just warm enough for Heather to wear the gorgeous dress she found for her session! Heather and Orion have been engaged for a few months now, and their engagement story is a real tear jerker if you’re huge Harry Potter nerds like we are. Orion planned a vacation for them to Harry Potter World at Universal Studios. They bought house robes and wands, and had a blast exploring the park! On their second day there, he told Heather he wanted to take a picture in front of the Hogwarts castle. Next thing Heather knew, he was down on one knee with a box that said “Always” engraved on the top! If you’re unfamiliar with the Harry Potter reference, its adorably sweet and had me tearing up just reading about it in our first few emails together! During our session, Orion mentioned that he was so worried the ring box wouldn’t come in the mail on time, but two days before they left, it finally arrived!
They are just such a sweet couple, and I love how much they just clearly love and care for each other. They have the most genuine smiles, and it was so easy to get some great photos during our session! We wandered around the Downtown Mall, and I love all of the spots that we found. Even though it was cold and a little rainy, our session was full of laughs and good times. They are such genuine people, and are absolutely adorable together! I’m so excited to get to see them again when I photograph their wedding in September! Here are a few of my favorites from our session!
