Bethany | Fredericksburg Grunge

I spent this past Sunday in Fredericksburg, catching up with my good friend Bethany while shooting a dark, grungy session in the alleys of downtown. In true Virginia weather fashion, this February day was a beautiful 75 degrees, even though it had been snowing just a few days prior. And of course, even though the chance of rain had been steadily going down over the course of the day, it decided to pour on us more than a few times. Rain is often a blessing though, and during one of these times the deluge coincided with a break in the clouds and resulted in the most beautiful raindrop/sunspot effect. I'm so glad we decided to keep shooting through these small downpours!

I'd also like to thank David Hart for the use of his sweater; it was both used in and helped inspire the theme of this shoot.
