Winter Great Falls Engagement Session | Bec + AJ

Just a few days before Christmas, I met Bec and AJ for their winter Great Falls engagement session. It’s hard to believe that their wedding at King Family Farm is already this Saturday! We met on the Maryland side for their session, but I had scoped out spots on the Virginia side, too. Both sides are beautiful, but time of day and access to the water with what you are wearing is important when deciding where to go if you want a session at Great Falls.

Winter can be a tricky time for any type of session. No leaves on trees means it’s important to find other interesting visual elements for the session. The water and rocks at Great Falls delivered. Other places that can be good any season are those with interesting architecture.

Bec and AJ loved camping and so the rocks were what they wanted! It was super cold, which meant it wasn’t as crowded, and Bec and AJ were troopers shedding their coats for their winter Great Falls engagement session. They wore neutrals and were comfy; their style reflected them.

One of the advantages of having a longer engagement is you can get a variety of season options for the engagement sessions. Shorter engagements mean that couples have to be more creative or be willing to deal with less than ideal weather!

This engagement session was simple, just like their plans for their wedding. It’ll be intimate with just 40 of their closest family and friends. They are not even having a wedding party! Their focus is on each other, which I adore!

I am so excited for their big day! Be sure to see more of them on my social media and website soon!

Meet Teresa


Hi. I’m Teresa. While photography is a part-time job for me, documenting your stories doesn’t ever get treated like it’s not important. My full-time gig is teaching high school English, journalism, and photography at an all-boys’ school in Washington, DC. Journalism is my favorite subject to teach because it is as much about writing as it is about the art of observing the world, and I became a photographer because of my experiences in photojournalism.

You’ll see in galleries with my families, children, newborns, or weddings, my style definitely is more about documenting connection and trying to create real moments. I love a good portrait, but my heart is happiest when I get real smiles from people loving on and playing with each other.
