Genevieve has literally the best style, so of course we knew she and Trey would pick an amazing location for their March engagement photo session. Now, we’ve been to a ton of photo shoot locations throughout Richmond VA and the surrounding area. However, we somehow missed this one. The park is nestled between Loch Lothian and 60 (aka the Midlothian Turnpike) in Chesterfield County VA. And, it turned out the be the perfect spot for our couple’s Midlothian engagement photos right at the start of Spring.
I never even knew this little gem of a park existed. Genevieve and Trey were hoping for some Springtime vibes for their engagement shoot. While it was still cold from what felt like the longest winter ever, we managed to find one little spot of trees starting to bud and blossom. So, we took full advantage.

Three years before Dave and I officially became a Richmond Wedding Photographer duo, these two lovebirds met on MySpace. Years later, they really hit it off when our RVA groom asked his future bride to be his girlfriend at The Boathouse at Sunday Park. Midlothian restaurant, The Boathouse has amazing food. It’s no wonder that they chose it as their venue for their June wedding full of fairytale theme goodness. The shrimp and grits at their wedding was so good!

Genevieve tells us, “We spent the weekend at Lake Gaston where I had suspected he would propose, but after the weekend passed and he hadn’t proposed yet, I put the thought in the back of my mind. The very next day (Monday), he texted me while I was at work asking if I wanted to go somewhere for dinner. He mentioned the Boathouse, but for some reason, I was craving chinese food”
Well, Trey was disappointed and waited another year to propose to his bride when she actually wanted to eat at The Boathouse again. Kidding! Our sneaky groom stopped in his tracks, got down on one knee and proposed that same night before they even went out for dinner.
Genevieve and Trey, thank you so much for wearing coordinating outfits to your March engagement pictures. And, Genevieve – especially for wearing this floral dress that just perfectly matched the tiny section of blossoms that we found. Congrats you two!
