I've been married long enough to know that it's filled with all sorts of unexpected things. The true test is how you weather the storm together and make it through all of those tough times. This engagement session beautifully mimics that sentiment.
Having rainy weather the day of your wedding or of your engagement shoot is always a little bit of a bummer. No one really wants that to happen...we can't control everything though so of course it does. Many couples call to reschedule their engagement sessions when unexpected weather occurs, but every now and then we come across a couple who is willing to embrace the rain.
Kristen + Ken didn't let the rain put a damper on their engagement photos. It rained literally the entire time, and they just rolled with it. We had the entire park pretty much to ourselves and were able to produce some incredibly romantic engagement photos.
These two got engaged in Japan, so the Japanese garden at Maymont was the perfect setting for their engagement shoot. They put together an amazing picnic complete with sake and a gorgeous rose bouquet. They even let David and I have a shot! Who knew I liked sake?!
I love how these two weathered the storm together and let their love shine through. Congratulations to Kristen + Ken!
Life Update! It has been an amazing 9 years of photographing portraits of all kinds in RVA! It was an amazing chapter in our lives, and we are ready to move on to the next. We will be shifting our business to solely focus on our commercial and editorial photography work, and unfortunately that means we will no longer be accepting bookings for our other photography services. Thank you for being on this journey with us and trusting us to document so many meaningful moments. You can check out our new work by heading to jadaanddavid.com or following us on instagram @jadaanddavid.
There are still a couple more opportunities to work with us this fall! We have a limited number of Thanksgiving Front Porch Sessions available. We also have fall mini sessions available at some of our favorite locations around RVA for select dates this fall! You can book those sessions directly from this link!
