• Huey + Natalie | Engaged

a lot of blogs…. it’s true. Not as many as I used to… but the list is still long! Bayside Bride is one of those blogs. I just loved how classy it was and I also loved that it was started by to friends that loved weddings and were based on the east coast! One of those gals is Natalie Franke… and not only does she have a part in running this amazing blog, she’s also an incredible photographer in the Annapolis area! When I saw she was engaged I remember randomly telling Michael “Awww… I want to shoot her wedding! She seems so sweet!”. I said that not having a clue if Natalie even knew who I WAS!

It was a big “wish”… but I tend to wish for a lot of things and you know what… every now and then… they come true!! Natalie emailed me about this time last year and I was thrilled! I was so excited to work with her and meet Huey! We spent a good 10 months chatting and planning potential eshoot dates but sometimes life AND weather get in the way of our shooting schedules!  We finally decided on last friday for the shoot but the forecast ALL week showed Friday to be a rainy, nasty mess. So we postponed…. and then the forecast changed… DRAMATICALLY. The shoot was back on and I’m telling you, it was gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous. I’m beyond grateful for Natalie and Huey’s flexibility with their schedules because last Friday was just meant to be!

We met downtown and walked the streets of Annapolis… if you have never journeyed to that part of Maryland… you’re missing out! It’s a must-see! Michael and I loved our time with these two.  I had met Natalie several times and I already knew I loved her… but I left their engagement session feeling so incredibly blessed that I have such amazing people coming into my life through my business. Huey and Natalie will be celebrating their wedding early this summer and we are so pumped to be a part of that day!! If their engagement images are any indication of what’s to come for the wedding…. we are in for a treat!!!

Enjoy some of my favorites! Huey and Natalie… you guys are such pros! Thanks for making my job so easy! We cannot WAIT to see you again! xoxoxo

Seriously guys? 

Go ahead…..

HA! LOVE this!! I feel like we’re all getting a little peek of what Natalie was like as a little girl!!

Oh hey gorgeous light!!

Natalie you’re just radiant! I love this! 

Sometimes the most unassuming places make for some of my favorite images! 

Too cute!

See Huey… it was so worth it:):)

Will always be a favorite!

I hope you guys love these as much as I do! So excited for you both!!!! xoxo
