charlottesville engagement photographer {jenny & rick}

just in time for valentine’s day is a photo shoot that might have been the most fun yet. jenny and rick spent some of their relationship separated by land and ocean as rick served overseas in afghanistan.  he has also jumped out of planes. AND their engagement involved a hot air balloon.

i was inspired by the brilliant color of hot air balloons and managed to borrow a parachute from WWII (!!!). the parachute belonged to the grandfather of ryan- the owner of random row books in charlottesville. if you live in the area please go support his lovely bookstore (it’s my fav). they do a lot of community events and it’s just a cool place to hang out, read, and find some sweet old records and books.

now onto the photos. i had so much fun playing with the parachute and tasting some of the wine at barboursville vineyards. jenny & rick are people that make me love my job.
