Crystal & Nate Winery Engagement Session | Northern Virginia Wedding Photographer

ROMANCE AT HILLSBOROUGH WINERY

Crystal and Nate met while attending Virginia State University.  

He proposed to her on New Year’s Day.  The proposal was supposed to happen at midnight, but Nate had to wait until the next morning because Crystal had fallen asleep.   She reported, “I was totally caught off-guard and surprised.  I just couldn’t stop smiling!”  

They will have a destination wedding in romantic Jamaica.  

Crystal and Nate enjoy activities that allow them to spend time with each other.  They especially love travel, trying new restaurants and cuisines, long walks along the W&OD trail, and enjoying Virginia’s great wineries.   

We wanted their engagement photographs to showcase their life style as well as their romance.  “I love that you are able to capture photos that seem so real and in the moment,” Crystal said.  

Hillsborough Winery was the perfect setting for our session, and I couldn’t have asked for better hosts than Hillsborough’s owners and staff.   Thank you for your kind invitation!  As you can tell from the photographs, we all had lots of fun there.  

On top of a hill, the Hillsborough wine-tasting room boasts lovely views of the valley below and offers easy access to photogenic vineyard, garden, and patio areas.  I was thrilled with the variety of images we were able to create there.  

Crystal and Nate were definitely in the moment and keeping it real!   Their traditional portraits as well as the romantic environmental portraits are both beautiful and moving.  I especially love those infectious smiles.  

Congratulations, Crystal and Nate.  May the engagement portraits we took at Hillsborough remind you in the years to come of these very special days of excitement and romance!
