Dorota + Dwight | In-home engagement session | Monument Avenue | Richmond, Virginia | Richmond Wedding Photographer

Something I love, ESPECIALLY during the winter months, are in-home sessions. I met Dorota and Dwight at their home in Richmond for their engagement session. As soon as I walked in and saw all of Dorota’s beautiful plants I knewwww that they would be sitting right in the plant corner for our session haha. I mean, it’s just so lovely!!! I spent a good 15-20 minutes while Dwight got ready asking Dorota all sorts of plant questions. True story- a week after their session… I bought a bunch of house plants hah. Good news- all but one are STILL alive. Trust me, i’m shocked myself.

The moment I saw Dorota and Dwight’s energy, I knew it was undeniable chemistry. They were so fun and relaxed and just fell right into each other. Dorota’s jokes also made it easy for me to capture genuine smiles and laughter. After a quick outfit change, we drove out to Monument Avenue to photograph the second part of their session. We all got so lucky with beautiful shades of leaves, even in late November. After wrapping up our session, I went back to their home where Dorota and I spent over an hour drinking coffee and talking about plants, photography and wedding plans. They will be getting married this summer at their Richmond home and I absolutely cannot wait to capture it!
