Rachel and Austin wanted something natural and outdoorsy for their engagement photos, so we chose the Ivy Creek Natural Area in Charlottesville, which has fields of long grass and flowers, forests with hiking trails, creeks and reservoir. Austin has just moved to Charlottesville to attend UVA School of Law, and Rachel moves here as soon as they are married here next month! We shot in the hour before sunset, first in the fields, and then down by the creek deep in the woods. We were having so much fun, we lost track of time and barely made it out of the woods before dark! I'm so excited for these two to explore all that this town has to offer as part of their first few years of marriage! Welcome to Charlottesville, you two!
