Becca + Jon were SO fun and easy to work with for their Fort Ward couples photos!!! I am seriously so grateful I had the chance to shoot with these two. I’ve known Becca for a few years now because she is friends with one of my closest friends from middle school. Crazy enough, earlier this same day, Becca and I were both in our mutual friend’s wedding together! Since the wedding happened fairly early on in the morning, we were able to hop over to this gorgeous park near the venue to shoot some photos!
Like a lot of couples, Becca and Jon told me that they were kinda nervous about being in front of the camera. One of them (I’ll let you guess) specifically stated how NOT excited they were about the shoot hehe. Let me just say, I was incredibly pleasantly surprised by how DANG EASY it was to photograph the two of them. They’re naturals!!! I’ve said this before, but it always makes me so excited when I give a couple a prompt or pose and they make it their own. Don’t worry about all the little details and specifics…just melt into each other! Trust your connection and that will shine through in every picture.
I feel like it’s worth talking a lil about this gorgeous park. YES PARK. This is a public park where you can just go and hang out. For someone from sunny (and typically brown and dry…) California, I couldn’t even believe how gorgeous and lush and green this place was. Seriously the perfect spot to plop down with a good book and an iced tea anytime. This is pretty much how all of Virginia looks in the summer, and it was blowing my mind everywhere I turned my head. I felt like we were frolicking around a magical fairyland with all that beautiful light!
As always, something a little strange and unexpected happened on this session. First, I got a giant splinter in my toe that I bravely removed myself (totally played it off like it was nbd, go me). But SECOND, we saw this gorgeous deer just chillin’ about 20 feet from us! She was so calm and relaxed and even let us get fairly close to snap a pic! That definitely doesn’t happen every day in LA lol.
Alright. Enjoy these two. They’re pretty sweet. <3
