I meet Rachaell and Josh at one of the bridal expos I attended in Richmond, Virginia and when they told me they want me to be their wedding photographer, I knew I had it was an easy YES! When it was time for us to do their engagement photos, they knew they wanted something special. We brainstormed different ideas, and finally, we settled on an overlook location with a breathtaking view.
As we arrived at Raven’s Roost Overlook, we took a moment to appreciate the stunning scenery. The overlook is usually busy around sunset time, but we were so excited to see that we were the only one there which means we have the entire overlook to ourselves. We thought we won’t have any sunset moments since the weather forecast says it was going to rain, but the view was truly breathtaking, with the sun setting behind the mountains in the distance. Rachaell and Josh were already glowing with excitement, and it was evident that we were going to have a great session.
We started off with some natural, candid shots as they stood next to each other, admiring the view. Thank goodness they were both okay with heights because I was literally asking them to go close to the edge and they were doing amazing! They were both dressed in casual outfits, perfect for outdoor settings. Rachaell’s hair flowed in the gentle breeze, while Josh wrapped his arm around her waist. They told me they never had professional photos taken before but they were so natural and relaxed in front of the camera.
We then moved around the overlook, taking advantage of the various viewpoints. One of my favorite shots from the session was when Rachaell and Josh were giggling together. I can tell that the two of them were getting comfortable and just having fun together. It was a truly romantic moment, and I knew these would be a memory that they will treasure forever.
Throughout the session, I learned that Rachaell and Josh love to hunt and fish. They were so adventurous and willing to try new things. As were almost done with the session, we all agreed that it had been a truly unforgettable experience and they appreciate how much I make them comfortable in front of the camera.
I can’t wait to see them both get married next year. Photographing their engagement session got me super excited and I can’t wait to see them again!

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
