Gloria & John | Virginia Engagement Session, Great Falls State Park

Before moving onto read this post, please keep these two in your prayers. About a week after our session together, their little dog Pickle (the small one) was attacked and passed away. I’m not sure about any other details, all I know is how heartbreaking this time is for them. Dogs are like family to many of us, and losing one in any way is absolutely crushing… He was such a little sweetheart!

John proposed to Gloria before her college football game. Her bff, also her roommate, asked if they wanted to walk around the campus and take some photos. John got down on one knee in front of one of Gloria’s favorite buildings on campus and popped the question! She of course said yes!

The wait to get into Great Falls Park was about 45 minutes once you pulled in because we were photographing on the first really nice spring day we have had yet this year! It was warm, sunny, and so many people had come to spend the day at the park! But we were able to walk around and enjoy ourselves, getting some great shots along the way!

Gloria’s sweet mom came along to help spend time with Bo and Pickle after their photos were over. How adorable are they? Gloria’s gorgeous long blonde hair looked absolutely flawless! (Hair & Makeup by Ashley Alana)
