I’m so excited to share these photos from Crissy & Tom’s engagement session at Swannanoa Palace. Sometime during High School, my friends and I heard about this mansion on top of Afton Mountain. And since there was literally nothing else to do in town, we decided to go check it out. From the time I first laid eyes on this beautiful estate, with its marble archways and towers, it has been imprinted on my mind as one of the most romantic spots in VA. I’m such a sucker for incredible architecture.
Anyways, I had a great time shooting with Crissy & Tom – they kept each other laughing all day long and made my job very easy! During the shoot, this 20-something girl walks up behind me and after admiring the couple for a minute, she says “Oh my gosh, I’m so single.” We died laughing!!
For the second half of the shoot, they wanted to incorporate their two puppy dogs for some of the photos. Cooper looked very dapper in his tie and Holly wore a lovely blue flower. Be sure to scroll down to see the most amazing outtake of those two.
Congrats, Crissy & Tom, on your engagement!!
And, here’s an outtake from the shoot. THOSE FACES!! Obviously, Cooper didn’t appreciate Holly’s sudden outburst.
