Abby & Austin || A Bridgewater College Sweetheart Session

In between scheduling all my JMU grads a few weeks ago I got an email from Abby saying she was looking for a photographer for her grad photos and some couple photos of her and her boyfriend Austin at Bridgwater College. Despite living just twenty minutes down the road from Bridgewater for four years I’d never even been until their session! Bridgewater’s campus is beautiful! We started out on the main lawn for some photos of Abby in her graduation robes.

Then Abby’s boyfriend Austin joined us! These two have known each other since high school and even though they had to face long distance (with Abby in Virginia and Austin in Nevada) they stayed in touch and eventually started dating. Abby had scoped out a lot of beautiful spots around campus for us to explore including an area by the woods with some perfect golden light and the bank along the river!

We were all finished with the session and walking back to my car when I spotted the light coming through these trees. It was too tempting to pass up so we stopped for just a few more before wrapping up! It was so nice to get to know these two and I loved exploring Bridgewater with them!

I'm a Virginia wedding photographer serving the DMV and worldwide. I strive to balance the composed with the candid and capture vibrant, timeless images for my couples.
