Richmond Riverside Engagement Session // Turtle & Hare Photography


It doesn’t get more romantic than a sunset stroll through the park, dancing in the last sunlight streaks of the day. Morgan and John did just that, dance through this session, first at Belle Isle and then at Libby Hill. It was so fun to see them laughing and enjoying the moment. I found myself not even needing to give prompts, they were so natural and laid back. They were such great sports, even trying out some of my more creative ideas for shots!

I met Morgan for the first time at a coffee shop a few months ago, when we talked all things wedding. I loved hearing about how she and John met, began dating, and became engaged. He did such a good job surprising her! She was so sweet, it was a joy to get to know her. I was looking forward to meeting John at the engagement session.

They wanted their session to be fun and relaxed, and that was easy for such a photogenic couple! Their outfits complemented both Belle Isle and Libby Hill perfectly, classic yet contemporary, with a pop of color. We feared our vision of photos on the rocks at Belle Isle would be thwarted by high water levels, but in the end we were able to get the rushing James from the rocks anyway. We arrived to Libby Hill right in time for that dreamy sunset.

If this session is an indicator, John and Morgan’s wedding later this year will be full of joy and laughter! I couldn’t ask for a sweeter couple to work with, and I can’t wait to see them dancing the night away! Here are some of my favorite photos from this downtown Richmond session. Enjoy and get excited for the photos from their wedding this fall! Cheers!
