yorktown portrait photographer: april+dave's engagement

a few weeks ago, i spent some time visiting my dad up in williamsburg and was thrilled that april and dave could schedule their engagement session around a time while i was there.  after months of corresponding by email, phone, facebook, texting, and following one another's blogs, we finally had a chance to meet!    

we got together at riverwalk landing in yorktown along the york river close to where their wedding will be held this coming weekend.  moments before we met, a big thunderstorm came up suddenly as i was driving there. however when we arrived at the location, the skies had cleared up and we sure had some gorgeous light.  what timing!  i was thrilled april and dave brought their beautiful collie, kayley, along for their session as well. she's a big part of their family and got plenty of attention from all the bystanders!  

 april and dave's wedding will have many personal touches including several DIY projects april has created herself. from necklaces she's making for the bridesmaids to fabric pomanders which will go on the aisle chairs during the ceremony.  she is one talented gal without a doubt! and she has to be, as by profession she's a textiles designer! and for all of you DIY brides, april has a great wedding blog you must check out, becoming foster and she also has an etsy shop. can't wait to blog about their wedding!
