This was a fun engagement session for me because it was the first time I had the opportunity to shoot at a zoo! It is great because there it not only open space and vegetation, but also architectural elements to play off of. Brittany + Mike chose the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk as the backdrop for their engagement session. They both love it there and told me it “felt like us”. That is what I love about custom photography, the client can pick a location that suits them and their personality as a couple. I had a great time walking around the zoo with them. I was able to really get to know them on a more personal level. Mike was our personal tour guide and I learned that Brittany is absolutely obsessed with giraffes! They are such a sweet and caring couple and I could see the love they have for each other. Looking forward to photographing them again at their wedding in June!
