Embracing Fall

  • Apple Picking | Chiles Orchard Charlottesville VA

me with a wedding on Saturday and throughout conversations, she mentioned that we should join them in Charlottesville the next day to go apple picking! My first thought was “YEAA!!!!”…. and then my second thought was “but we just got back from a trip and our house is a disaster and I have 108 emails that need to be replied to and a wedding that needs to be culled … we can’t do that, no way!”….. THEN, my THIRD thought was “Katelyn, you wanted to doing something fun and fall-ish and you’re NEVER going to do it if you’re constantly waiting for “the right time” “. There would NEVER be a random FREE day this fall when Michael and I

Bokeh Boy

  • New and Improved

makeover everyone! If you follow me on Instagram you already know this but my mother has been grooming Bokeh Boy for the last month or so and she’s scissor happy!!! He’s so short!!! But we’re finding that his shorter hair is MUCH easier to manage, especially when it’s still somewhat warm outside. So Bokeh has had a mini makeover and I actually think that he looks more “puppy-like” than he did before! Maybe it’s the ears? I don’t know… but we like it. He’s a cutie no matter how long his hair is! I still think we need to let him be a big fluff ball every now and then!!!! Have a GREAT weekend everyone!!

Garrett + Rachel

  • An Oak Ridge Estate Wedding | Virginia Wedding Photographer

I feel like I should pinch myself! Looking back over the last two years, my blog has been full of our friend’s weddings!! First of all, it’s amazing to see all of these amazing couples starting their lives together and secondly, I’m just honored that I have been able to be a part of them!! It’s an awesome feeling to be able to serve my friends in this way and I’m so thankful I was able to be a part of Garrett and Rachel’s wedding day! This wedding day was so incredible to watch because I remember sitting on the couches at our campus bakery shop talking with Rachel about when this day would come. She was only a freshman and she had really only seen Garrett from a distance… but she liked him.
