I figured I would make all our lives easier and compile a list of the top recommended boutiques/stores for when you’re shopping for a dress! So I am 100% not a fashionista and 80% of the time live in comfy clothes BUT I love dressing up. I asked on Instagram recommendations for a long dress for vacation and received tons of great recommendations. I then asked on my Instagram story for recommendations and said I would make a list for everyone. Well… here’s the list!!! I am sure it is going to evolve and grow over the years!
I love to travel and explore new places and in 2019 engagement sessions took me all over Virginia from… Charlottesville, Richmond, Williamsburg, Blacksburg, and Roanoke. I heard countless love stories. Every year I am amazed at how sweet my clients are. For me, every wedding that I get to be a part of is equally special. Engagement sessions are a stepping stone to the big day where my clients start to become more like life-long friends. Engagement sessions are one of my favorite things to photograph for that reason.
For those of you that know me, know that I am extroverted. 2019 has been such a good year. I met many people through photographing seniors. My favorite thing about photographing high school and college seniors is getting to know each senior by taking our time during the session talking and sharing stories. 2019 senior photos were filled with GORGEOUS pink blossoms, friendly pups, champagne, and confetti.
Sarah and Will are young and in love!!!! The winter weather was perfect for snuggling and nuzzling in front of the camera. Sarah and Will have such a sweet proposal story. Will had help picking out a from his brothers and Sarah’s best friend. The ring he picked shows diamonds from every angle and is simply breathtaking. After taking the MCAT, they planned a trip to the Baltimore aquarium where he proposed by the harbor.
All engagement sessions are special but this one was super special because I have known the bride for over 10 years!!!! Scarlet and I played soccer together in middle school and we’ve have kept in touch throughout high school and some in college. We’ve been teammates, classmates, and friends. Photographing Scarlet’s wedding means so much to me! I LOVE these winter Richmond engagement photos!!!
I am excited to announce AEP’s first graduation representative team!!! Now I am guessing that some of you are thinking… what is a representative team? AEP’s Rep Team is a group of girls that represent Ashley Eagleson Photography. Together we brainstorm, collaborate, and support one another. Being a part of the AEP Rep Team means several group and styled shoots.
Today I am featuring Jordan from Boundless Love Events on my blog!!!! Jordan is sharing the first steps for planning a wedding. Don’t just head-first into wedding planning without a strategy. Doing these steps FIRST will save yourself from extra stress and headaches.
Within a week, Emily and Chris got engaged, had their consultation call with me, and we planned their engagement session. Talk about a productive week!!!! We just missed peak Fall but we were happy when not all the leaves had fallen yet at Bryan Park for their engagement photos in Richmond.
Megan and Chance were referred to me by a mutual friend and I am so excited that they found me. Megan and I met up for coffee to get to know each other and chat about their wedding! Chance and I both went to the Roanoke College but never crossed paths which is shocking because it’s a relatively small community! During their engagement session, I had fun chatting with Chance about the mutual friends we have at Roanoke College. The engagement photos took place in Roanoke, VA, which is a favorite location of mine.
