Stylish Hometown Engagement in Franklin

While we normally reserve Mondays for real weddings, when this chic styled engagement came in, we just knew we had to get it in before Valentine's Day! You'll soon see why their style would be perfect for a sweet date night!

Rickeita and Chris met at a New Year Eve's party that neither really wanted to go to, but fate stepped in, and the two were introduced by mutual friends. Since they are getting married in Franklin, Virginia, this stylish bride had a vision in mind when it came to their engagement session with Timeless Memories by Kristen. Because Rickeita's family lives in Franklin, a hometown very close to her heart, she wanted to weave in family influence not just on their wedding day, but also in their session.

With pops of red, vintage suitcases, Chris' dapper bowtie and hat, a peanut silo photobomb, and Rickeita's father's horses, these two make the touch of vintage look good!

[Important Editor's Note: Since photographing on train tracks is illegal for private property reasons, the photographer and couple did obtain official permission to have parts of this engagement session on the tracks and with the parked train. I absolutely love this photographer's initiative to make her clients' session safe and memorable! To learn more about Operation Lifesaver: Rail Safety Education, please visit]
