Jackie and Kyle’s engagement session at the Virginia State Capitol was something straight out of a dream. Except, if it was really a dream, Jackie’s shoe probably wouldn’t have broken. Yep! Jackie had just texted me that they arrived when just a minute later she texts again that her heel just broke! These two had traveled from Charlottesville so we were gonna make it work. I had to switch up my usual prompts that get couples running and jumping around to ones where she was able to balance on her broken heel in order to hide the fact that it was broken. It was definitely a challenge but you’d never be able to tell from the photos! And I’d say it was totally worth it.
Getting to shoot an engagement session at the Virginia State Capitol was so much fun because it’s such a different type of location compared to my usual shoots. The city environment and architecture made for the perfect backdrop and gave off the coolest modern industrial vibes. It almost reminded me of shooting at the Lincoln Memorial, except this location is much closer to me right here in Richmond!
I’m so glad Jackie suggested this location for their engagement session, it’s definitely been added to my list of locations to shoot at. These two get married in May and I cannot wait!
