Engagement Shoot at Mount Ida Farm

A gorgeous engagement shoot guest starring horses? How could we not love this?

Yes, that backdrop is totally real. All photographs by Aaron Watson Photography

A few weeks ago, we showed you a new Charlottesville wedding venue, Mount Ida Farm. Today, we’re presenting the venue in a whole new light by featuring some rustic engagement photos shot at the property.

Anne and Campbell got married a few weeks ago at King Family Vineyards in Crozet, Va., but they decided to have their engagement shoot at Mount Ida Farm, at the suggestion of their photographer, Aaron Watson.

“Being engaged is such a fun and exciting time, and we were hoping to capture that on film,” says Anne. “We were a little unsure of what to do at first, but Aaron helped us relax and have fun.”
