Sunset Harpers Ferry Engagement in the Autumn- it doesn’t get much more spectacular than this! Combine that with Miranda and Tyler’s fun-loving, active personalities, vibrant wardrobe, and gorgeous blue-sky day and I have to say we had a blast!
Jefferson Rock Harpers Ferry Engagement
When we started discussing an engagement session location, Miranda mentioned that Jefferson Rock is such a classic landmark that most of their friends and family would know.
It has a pretty unique history too! The landmark was named because Thomas Jefferson stood on it back in 1783 and described the view for Notes on the State of Virginia.
I know a recent trend in wedding and engagement photography is to have more muted colors– I really love vibrant colors and if anything, try to play them up when I shoot. I really loved pulling in the autumn colors surrounding us and appreciated their vibrant color pallette, too! (Check out Tyler’s sweater, so fun!)
When Miranda & Tyler first met they were both on bumble and Miranda swiped on Tyler because his college was in her hometown that she happened to be visiting.
Tyler actually played football and Miranda played basketball at rival colleges. I love that they included jerseys in their session to give a nod to the story of how they met. 🙂
A Mix of Portraits and Creative Photography
While most of the engagement session I focused on candid, creative shots, I did make sure to sprinkle a few more traditional portraits with different poses throughout. This one features Jefferson Rock and the Potomac River below.
Take a closer look at the photo following to see their shadows alongside of the Potomac river!
I love when couples integrate their favorite things into their sessions. Miranda & Tyler have such a sweet proposal story!
Tyler proposed to Miranda at a winery because of her appreciation for fine wine. Look at how gorgeous her ring is!
Along the Potomac
We made sure to take photos near the water because Miranda & Tyler love to fish. They’ll adventure to find a body of water and then drop their poles in.
I love playing with light and this lighting was so interesting– from the intense warm sunlight on Jefferson Rock to the cool tones closer to the water, I had a lot to play with!
