Maymont’s enchanting beauty provided a dreamy backdrop for Raphael and Gabriella’s engagement session. Every step throughout the park felt like a magical moment frozen in time. The soft, natural light that filtered through the trees illuminated Gabriella and Raphael’s love in the most enchanting way. Each location within the park seemed to hold a different kind of magic, and the couple effortlessly embraced it all.
Exploring the park hand and hand, Raphael and Gabriella seized every opportunity to enjoy one another’s company.

Gabriella and Raphael’s chemistry is undeniable, and it was evident in every frame.

As Gabriella and Raphael basked in the warm glow of the sun, I endeavored to utilize the natural light to create soft, romantic images.
In the gardens, the sun danced through the leaves, casting a soft glow on the couple as they shared sweet moments of affection. The rays of light illuminated their love, creating a sense of warmth and intimacy in each photograph. The couple’s joy radiated through the images, making it impossible to look away.
This light filled engagement session was not just about capturing stunning photographs. It was also an opportunity for Gabriella and Raphael to share their unique and beautiful love story.
Gabriella and Raphael met as students at Virginia Commonwealth University. From the moment they met, there was an undeniable spark between them.
Raphael proposed in the fall of 2022. I had the privilege of meeting the pair while photographing Olivia and Dan’s Romantic Barn Wedding in King William, VA. She was the sister of the bride/maid of honor; he was a groomsman. I love it when this happens! It’s so special when friends and family of a former client chooses me to be their photographer!
Gabriella and Raphael’s shared love for travel and exploration brought them to Maymont Park, where they knew they could create unforgettable memories together. As they walked hand in hand through the gardens, their eyes sparkled with excitement and anticipation for what the future held.
Gabriella and Raphael’s natural easiness together allowed me to capture glimpses of their inside jokes, their stolen glances, and the way they effortlessly leaned on each other for support. This is truly one of those sessions where I felt a sense of the couple’s deep connection and unwavering love.
Their engagement session served as a reminder of how far they’ve come and how far they still have to go. It was a celebration of their commitment to each other and the promise of a lifetime of adventures together.
As they look back on these beautiful photographs, I hope Gabriella and Raphael are reminded of the joy and happiness they felt during their time at Maymont Park.
Looking back on this beautiful light filled engagement session, I’m filled with excitement and anticipation for Gabriella and Raphael’s classic wedding next spring at the John Marshall Ballrooms in Richmond VA. I can’t help but imagine how magical it will be to witness the pair walking down the aisle hand in hand, ready to embark on a new chapter of their lives together.
Gabriella and Raphael’s light filled engagement session was just the beginning of their love story, and their wedding day will be the perfect continuation. I cannot wait for their love to be illuminated once more, creating a day that will forever be etched in their hearts.
