State Arboretum of Virginia Engagement Session // Cole + Laura // Luxury VA Wedding Photographer

I had the honor of getting to take Cole and Laura's engagement photos recently. This one was close to my heart because Cole is my cousin. My family is very close, so seeing my one of my cousins (basically siblings) find their forever person is so special. I was Lauran Baker before I got married and now there will be a Laura Baker -- haha, I love this more than I probably should. I love my maiden name and still throw in in whenever possible. 4 names is better than 3! :)


We are so excited to welcome Laura into the crazy Baker family!





Laura's sweet daughter Madi kept us on our toes and was the cutest! I loved witnessing their family dynamic and the way that they all love and interact with each other.





We took their photos at the State Arboretum of Virginia, also known as Blandy Experimental Farm in Boyce, Virginia. This was my first time there and holy moly I will be going back! I was obsessed with all of the photo opportunities and the stone architecture. So classy and unique for this area!





























Congrats Cole, Laura, and sweet Madi! I cannot wait to celebrate your marriage in just a few short weeks! xo.
