Sometimes it feels good to get out and shoot, stretch your legs, and be a little adventurous, even when that means wading waist deep in a river. I met with Mandy, Zac, and my sweet friend Meredith (Meredith Branscome Photography) at the Dan River, in gorgeous Stokes County. Shooting during golden hour is always my favorite, and the river at golden hour didn’t disappoint! And I can’t say enough about how natural and authentic Mandy and Zac are in front of the camera, their love is palpable looking at the images, so so much real love. And while it was a little nerve wracking wading out into “open” water with my little Nikon friends (this session was shot with a Nikon D750 and old my super school 80-200 2.8f), it was all worth it. 100%.
