Hi there! I'm Caiti and I am a portrait photographer living in Disputanta, Virginia. I am a music loving, doughtnut eating, coffee drinking, mama of 2. This is the place where you can come to see my latest work with my beautiful clients and learn more about me, my husband, and our sweet babies. Take a look around and enjoy!
I’m so excited to introduce you all to another one of my 2019 couples – Bill & Emily! I couldn’t wait to meet these two!! I felt like I knew them already since I have been chatting with Emily for months now. We met up in Richmond by Browns Island early on a Sunday morning, which was the perfect option because it was not crowded at all! If you’re familiar with the area, you know how rare that is. So if you ever need to do a session there, try it around sunrise.
Emily & Bill met during their senior year at Bridgewater College at a football tailgate. They immediately hit it off and never looked back! In Emily’s words, “we’ve been inseparable ever since”. That was almost 4 years ago!
Then, this past June, Bill planned a special day at a brewery with some friends of theirs, where he intended on proposing. However, the night before, he changed his mind. He decided he couldn’t wait!!!
The two of them had a normal night, cooking dinner at home and then decided to go for a walk. Emily wanted to make a stop by Charm School first (because why not!?) and they walked up to the VA War Memorial, while eating their ice cream, to watch the sunset along the river & skyline. Bill had a feeling that he wanted to propose during their walk so he had slipped the ring in his pocket. Smooth move!
While Emily was watching the sun set along the skyline, not paying any attention to what Bill was doing, he was down on one knee behind her. She turned around to be totally shocked!! The love of her life was proposing!! Emily said it was literally the most perfect proposal for the two of them. She has a thing for skylines, too, including having pictures of them on the wall in their apartment, so how cool is it that Bill proposed while looking over the RVA skyline?
I loved hearing them recap this story and talk about how they met. Seeing couples relive those moments together and hearing their different perspectives is my favorite part of the engagement session.
I hope you enjoying looking through Bill & Emily’s fall engagement session!!! It was such a fun morning and I can’t wait for their wedding this summer in Richmond!
