Hi, we're Hunter and Sarah, a husband-and-wife, luxury wedding photography team. We’re also educators, helping other photographers build profitable and sustainable photography businesses.
As we explored the Gardens at Waterperry Farm with Marina and Jordan during their engagement session, Sarah and I were both surprised at how much we discovered we had in common with them! Jordan had done his undergrad at William and Mary, and is currently in Law School at UVA. Having grown up in Williamsburg then moved to Charlottesville for school, it felt like we had made a lot of the same transitions! Their long-distance relationship during undergrad, separated by 2.5 hours from the Shenandoah Valley to Hampton Roads, was another thing Sarah and I bonded with them over! And as they took turns re-telling the story of the day that Jordan got down on one knee – the family dynamics and the huge surprise and all – we also had flashbacks to our own proposal!
But more than those superficial things, we also saw a lot of love in Marina and Jordan. We saw they way they laughed together, and they way they so naturally snuggled into each other’s arms during some of our poses. We saw the way they adventured with us, unafraid of stepping out onto a precarious rock or exploring a new area of the gardens with us. We saw they way they looked at each other when telling stories. In short, we saw an engaged couple that we know is going to make a great married couple 😉
It was so fun to finally meet you two in person! Sarah and I had a blast exploring the Gardens at Waterperry Farms with you both earlier this month. We’re also SO glad that you two were willing to take a chance with us and shoot at a venue with us for the first time. It definitely turned out to be a risk well-taken!! We are so excited about these images of you two, and that we were able to utilize such a beautiful venue to capture your love story!
