Danielle + Ryan | Charleston WV Engagement Photographer


I’ve been really fortunate to find so many awesome people to photograph in Austin, but getting to fly to my hometown, Charleston, West Virginia to photograph Danielle and Ryan and take a little mini-break this June was exactly what I needed to rejuvenate after May’s hectic (although amazing!) schedule.

I’ve had a good solid two months of editing till 2 a.m. every night, just trying to catch up on all those awesome weddings, and I know I’ve been a little too distracted to blog about all the wonderful things I’ve been up to, but I can’t believe I haven’t posted these photos yet! This really is one of my favorite engagement sessions. We got rained out the first day we went to shoot, so we all came back on a sunny day, with hot summer clothes, a beautiful up-do on Danielle, and their little puppy!

Ryan and Danielle are high school sweethearts – they’ve been together for 8 years, they were voted cutest couple in high school (and Danielle was voted “most artistic!”), and I don’t think I’ve ever met a couple more in tune with each other than these two. They were so amazing to work with because they gave me complete artistic freedom. It’s always a blast for everyone when I’m given the blessing to ‘do whatever I want’ and they were just wonderful to work with. Up for anything, down for anything. I adore working with them, I can’t wait for their wedding! Thank you again for the awesome weekend of shooting annnnddd the early June mini-break from Austin’s blistering heat
