Tyler & Sara | Private Family Farm Engagement Session, Chilhowie VA | Elizabeth Hill Photography
Off exit 35 as you’re driving down interstate 81, sits a little town with less than 1000 people. Everyone knows you when you go to the only grocery store to pick up milk, you can still put a tab sometimes at local gas stations, and you graduate from a high school with less than 150 students in your graduating class. We know each other around here and some people love it and hate it all the same. But, despite being from this little one lighted town, this engagement session was a treat for me, because it was the first time getting to see Chilhowie from this view point.
Sara & Tyler had an instant connection. As soon as I started photographing them, it was clear how much they love each other. I’ve known Tyler for many MANY years because we grew up in the same town, but the instant I met Sara, I knew I was going to have an incredible time being beside her as she became a wife.
She has such a sweet, kind spirit. The way she laughs and just understands Tyler is sweet to watch. They had mentioned wanting to do their photos on Tyler’s family farm and when I got up there, I really think it’s one of the prettiest views I’ve ever seen in Chilhowie! (Secretly enjoyed that it was only 2 miles from my house too!)
They danced and walked and explored the whole property with me as I told them I’m a huge fan of chasing the light! Them dancing under the tree as the sun was setting just took my breath. Some of my favorite photos I’ve ever got to capture!
Can’t wait to see these two promise forever to each other next April and that I get to be there to document it all! Sharing some of my favorites from the session below and I hope you enjoy it!
Congratulations Sara & Tyler!! Can’t wait for your wedding next April!
