welcome to my blog!
Some couples radiate so much happiness that it’s impossible not to completely fall in love with them! Allyson & Andrew are that kind of couple, and being able to capture these special moments for them made me realize just how much I LOVE being a photographer.
I was so nervous we won’t be able to shoot their engagement session that day just because of how unpredictable the weather was – I mean that’s Virginia weather for you! But luckily Swannanoa Palace has a gorgeous covered patio and we were able to take most of their photos while waiting for the rain to stop. Allyson was wearing a beautiful flowy white dress with a light blue floral design that complimented Andrew’s stunning navy suit and brown shoes.
Despite how cold the weather was during their photo session at the beautiful Swannanoa Palace in Afton, VA – Allyson and Andrew looked absolutely stunning! Imagine wearing a beautiful flowy dress on a 40 degrees rainy month?!
My favorite part of the day was how relaxed and calm they were as I was taking their photos. During our discovery call, Andrew mention how they needed help with posing, but I didn’t have to do much for them as their love was radiating despite how foggy and cold it was. They looked so natural in front of the camera and they were basically just enjoying their time together as I capture the love that they share with each other.
Even though the weather didn’t turn out the way we expected it to be. We all had fun and make the best out of it. I’m obsessed with my 2023 couples and can’t wait to celebrate Allyson & Andrew in April! Let’s all congratulate the newly engaged couple and celebrate with them!

If you are looking for a photographer that has a great personality, experienced with attention to detail, and is fun to work with, then Lyn is your person! She arrived on time and immediately began to work. She was great at directing everyone on how to pose and had great patience dealing with my chaotic family! She took numerous photos and she was able to send me sneak peaks in less than 24 hours!"
"We loved the photos and we're glad we chose Lyn as our photographer!

When planning a wedding it is so scary to hire vendors and have all the trust in them that they will do a good job and from the second I met Lyn Waldrop I knew she would have my best interest in mind!"
"Lyn also did an amazing job at capturing our real emotions which I am so grateful for!

She was great at communicating so I wasn’t stressed about how I should dress, and when and where to go. I’m not very comfortable in front of a camera but I’d do another shoot with her any day! She had tons of poses and a plan of what we were doing so I was at ease knowing these pictures would look beautiful."
“Lyn was SO energetic and made the experience so much more fun
