Relaxed Backyard Dog-Loving Engagement || Christina & Justin
Just a couple of weeks before their engagement session, Christina & Justin bought their first home in Springfield, Virginia to fill with new memories. So when it came time to pick a location for their photos that would be meaningful, comfortable, and unique to them, their first backyard was the clear choice! And what a killer backyard it is. Not only is it big, but it backs right up to a wooded park and includes a rocky river fountain, grapevines growing in the side yard, and, of course, a wooden fence for their adorable dogs Josie & Mizzy. This family of four could not have been any kinder – when I first arrived I was greeted with all kinds of hugs, dog snuggles, & even a spread of snacks in the kitchen. I mean what more could you dream of?! This evening was so perfectly fun – just like Christina & Justin. They wandered around their stone pathways, harvested grapes from the vines, and snuggled with the pups as they wandered in & out of their hunts. And we realized day-of that it was National Mutt Day – what a perfect way to celebrate the joy these two expressive & sweet creatures bring into Christina & Justin’s lives! Christina & Justin, thank you guys so much for a wonderful time. Your love is so kind, fun, and deep and it was a sheer delight to document!
