Nick & Salina – A Belle Isle Engagement Session

I’m excited that this is the first blog post for the new website! Now that I’ve relaunched with my new brand and new website, I cannot wait to share Nick and Salina’s engagement session. 

I met Nick and Salina at the Greater Virginia Bridal Show in February. I was so glad they stopped by my booth that day and we got to chat for a little bit! Since bridal shows can be super hectic, we scheduled a time to meet over coffee and I got to know them a little better and they officially became a MJMP Couple! 

We had decided to have a late spring/early summer engagement after Nick finished his semester of college. This date was actually a reschedule! The weekend before was our original date but it was due to rain and rain… and ended up sunny and hot! Naturally. So when rain was predicted again for our backup date, I prayed that the rain would stay away and we would be able to continue with our engagement session plans! And it did! It was a beautiful day at Belle Isle near Downtown Richmond, where we decided to do the engagement portraits. 

I was so happy we went through with the date, despite the forecast of storms just a day before! We got these amazing images and I cannot wait to see how their wedding day unfolds in October!
