VMFA Engagement Session | Leah & Michael

September 9, 2022

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is such a stunning location for engagements, no matter what season we are in. VMFA has become a favorite spot of mine because the architecture, the grounds, the people– it’s all so lovely. And oh my stars, am I so excited to share Leah and Michael’s VMFA engagement session with you all. 

First things first, I am totally smitten with these two. 🥰 

As you will witness in Leah and Michael’s portraits, I am STILL funny, in case you were wondering- which I hope you weren’t! The scrunchy noses and laughs, it’s what fills my heart and what I live for with my couples.

Leah and Michael are getting married in April 2023. Plans for a church ceremony and a traditional Indian Ceremony at the historic Mankin Mansion in Richmond, VA and have one of my favorite wedding planners ever be a part of their big day, so talk about extra extra cherries on top!

With all of the life changes these two have endured thus far, I loved hearing all of the exciting updates they shared… I can only imagine where they will be in less than a year when we meet again for them to be MARRIED! AHHHHH.

I am so beyond excited for these two and I can’t wait to meet ALL of their people and celebrate with them.

Ok ok I’ll get to the pretty VMFA engagement session now… but one last thing, how STUNNING are these two!? Like, how do I get this lucky to have such attractive couples? You are all making my job SO easy.
