alex + brad | charlottesville engagement

I first met Alex and Brad one year ago when Alex was a bridesmaid in Kathleen and Jon’s wedding. I remember thinking that they were an adorable couple, and I was thrilled when Alex contacted me a few months ago to let me know that they had gotten engaged! They are getting married next year a little closer to Warrenton, but since these two met at UVA, it seemed fitting to have their engagement session in Charlottesville. (Actually, the two technically met when they were studying abroad at Oxford. But the program was through UVA, so I guess that counts!)

I met up with Alex, Brad, and their adorable dog, George, for a session around UVA last Sunday. It was such a gorgeous evening, and it was really fun for me to spend more time with these two. They’re both incredibly sweet and so in love.  I can’t wait to celebrate with them next May! It was so hard for me to narrow it down, but here are just a handful of my favorites from our session…

I love Alex’s VA necklace!

George is seriously one of the sweetest and most well-behaved dogs that I’ve ever met. Since our session last week, I think I’ve told at least ten people about him. (I’m not joking!)

I’m pretty sure that Virginia wins the award for best state slogan.

I mean, seriously? These two made things really easy for me.

Toward the end of our session, we decided to head over to Beta Bridge. If you’re from Charlottesville, you know that the bridge could have been painted a million different ways. We weren’t sure what we were going to get, but I guess it was our lucky day…

Alex and Brad: Thanks so much for the fun evening in Charlottesville! I can’t wait to photograph your wedding next year… it’s going to be here before you know it!
