Carli & Rafy || A Downtown Richmond Engagement Session

Simply put, Carli and Rafy are perfect for each other.

As they told me in their own words: “From date #1 it was a whirlwind romance spent learning about each other and bonding over a shared love of humor and making people laugh.” And I can truly say their love is like a blanket that surrounds and wraps the two of them together. And as for making people laugh? Well, keep reading :-p.

Not only that, but these two are serious romantics at heart. For his proposal, the two went out salsa dancing one night (I know, right??) and came home to an apartment FILLED with roses. (Again, I KNOW, RIGHT???) And even though Rafy forgot his line :)… Carli said yes anyway!

Words can’t describe the beautiful, playful aura that surrounds these two when they are together. They were seriously giddy like school children during their entire engagement session. Although, to be fair, I think that’s just how excited and cutesy they are with one another at all times :-p. I’m honestly not even sure what kept us in stitches, but throughout our entire session the three of us sent out continuous peels of laughter into Libby Hill Park and the surrounding Church Hill neighborhood. It’s honestly hard to keep from smiling just being around their love <3.

Carli and Rafy, I am so so so happy that I got the opportunity to photograph your engagement session and ECSTATIC to photograph your May wedding in 2018! Bring on the food, friends, and fun 🙂
