homegrown love. {charlottesville engagement lifestyle photography}

what i loved about mayra and nick’s engagement session is that they wanted it to take place at their home, here in charlottesville.  mayra is from peru and i think it gives her friends and family an incredible way of seeing and understanding her life and love here.

mayra and nick garden, they cook, they play with their silly kitty, and they laugh a lot together. you can see their lives so clearly in their photographs. here are a few of my faves. the ring shot is definitely one of my favorite ring photos ever- but unfortunately it doesn’t do her beautiful engagement ring justice. it’s an heirloom from nick’s side of the family and it is just plain gorgeous.
