Ashley & Brandon Engaged Claytor Lake Virginia Documentary Engagement Photography

As I pulled up to meet Ashley and Brandon for their engagement session, I saw the temperature had just reached a chilly 17 degrees! These two braved it out together and had the fantastic idea of building a campfire to warm up. They were even daring enough to take a canoe out onto the icy waters of Claytor Lake, a spot where Brandon has spent a lot of time from his childhood to today. Since Brandon is an ammunition tech, it was very fitting to have some ring shots with bullets. We also discovered that when you blow on cattails, hundreds of seedlings scatter making it look like snow! This day also had a lot of meaning for Ashley and Brandon as it marked their 1 year anniversary since their very first date. Now they are planning a wedding celebration on one of the most fun nights of the year, New Years Eve!
