A Country Barn Engagement by Michelle Renee Photography

This couple could in fact be the most adorable couple we have ever featured here on East Coast Bride. Beautifully captured by the talented, Michelle Renee Photography, this country inspired engagement session just screams perfection.  A beautiful setting, perfect styling and wait until you see the bride-to-be’s smile. Just gorgeous.

From the photographer…

Liza and Alex grew up on the same street but never knew it until their paths crossed as young adults on New Year’s Eve, 2009. A month after Liza and Alex first met, Alex asked Liza out for a first date. The rest is history. They have been together ever since. Earlier this year, Liza agreed to go for a drive in the country with Alex in his antique Cadillac. When Alex turned town an unfamiliar dirt road, Liza was skeptical. She questioned whether or not they were supposed to be there, thinking the property was private. Alex assured her that it was fine and stopped the car. They decided to walk around for a while and when Alex got out of the car and walked to Liza’s side, he knelt to “tie his shoe” in front of her. Instead of standing up, he held out a gorgeous diamond ring and asked Liza to be his wife. She excitedly agreed and has been glowing in the aftermath of that proposal ever since. This engagement session took place in Centreville, Virginia where Alex’s father owns some land. Liza was originally concerned that the barn would be run-down and not a “pretty” backdrop for an engagement session. Obviously, from these photos it’s clear that the barn, along with every other aspect of the property, was perfect…In every, single way. Liza and Alex drove from Maryland while I drove from Richmond, Virginia for this session. It rained for several hours before, but the clouds parted as soon as the session began. We even got a pretty good sunset out of it! I hope you enjoy the images from this session as much as Liza, Alex, and I have. Thanks so much for your time! :)
