 Best of Engagements in 2016 | Hampton Roads Engagement Pictures

There's nothing like being engaged. It's one of the times in your life when you are absolutely sure of what's coming next. You are in love more than ever before and you know that you are loved. All the dreams you had about your wedding day will unfold over the next few months. Decisions will be made, cakes will be tasted, and the countdown will begin. But the feeling of being assuredly in love, with the bright hope of a future together, is one of the most beautiful things of all.

Seeing couples engaged and in love is a wonderful part of being a wedding photographer. There is so much joy in the present time and what is to come. This year was filled with some of the most amazing times - from a stunning red dress at Regent University to an adventure-filled day hiking Natural Bridge all the way to the gorgeous Albemarle Estate at Trump Winery, it was a time I will never forget. As each of these couples steps closer to marriage - or said I do this year! - I pray their engagement session and their engagement season is one of the most memorable times of their lives. Scroll down to see some absolutely amazing couples and the best that 2016 had to offer!

My name is Maria, and I am a wedding and family photographer based out of Hampton Roads, Virginia, but I am always excited about traveling. I love families who truly enjoy spending time with each other and living life together. I love couples that are looking forward to their wedding day because they are so excited to finally be married to.
