I am super excited to finally get to share Jackie and Ben’s engagement photos. They’ve been kept secret until now because the first part of the session was dedicated to photographing Ben’s amazing woodworking talent. As this couple’s guests now know, each one of them was given a unique and handmade wine stopper that Ben personally sculpted in his wood shop in his and Jackie’s backyard. No instructions or designs, just Ben’s imagination, his woodworking tools and his hands. As you can imagine, the wedding favors were a huge success and I look forward to sharing how the wine stoppers and these photos were displayed at the reception. After such a fun start, Jackie and Ben decided to continue the engagement session with a picnic, complete with wine, on the campus of Jackie’s alma mater, the University of Richmond. And, since our session fell on their joint birthday, yes, there were cupcakes!
