As soon as Sascha said she wanted a country-style engagement shoot due to Mike’s childhood in the country, I got so excited! I frequently shoot in the city environment so I’ve been craving some barns, wheat fields, long winding roads, and all that gorgeous stuff I so rarely get to see here in Alexandria. We finally settled on Frying Pan Park as our location, which was appropriate as Sascha and Mike both lived near there when they first started dating. Sascha even taught classes there! The red barns and fence matched Sascha’s adorable red props, like the picnic blanket and heart balloon, and the surroundings were just gorgeous. These two are so sweet together, and I know their October wedding at 1757 Golf Club is going to be beautiful!!
