A Firehouse Engagement Shoot

  • Blake + Rita | Engaged

shooting, I mentioned how Rita was the one who convinced me to tryout for Volleyball in Middle School…. and then I quickly added that it became painfully obvious that volleyball was not “my thing” after a few games. That’s when I thought my friendship with Rita started but she reminded me that we actually went to PRESCHOOL together!! We first met at the “Little School at the Grove”  as toddlers! Who would have thought that we would grow up and I would be photographing her wedding?! It’s such a small, wonderful world and I loved every minute of my time with these two.

Blake and Rita met me at the firehouse and it was the perfect place to start their shoot! Blake is a fire fighter and I love that they decided to shoot on locations that really represent who they are. To say these two are fun would be an understatement. I’m so thrilled to be a part of their wedding day and I’m excited to share their engagement shoot today!! So happy Black Friday and to all of you crazies out there trying to make it through the crowds, I wish you patience and great sales. :) Congrats to Rita and Blake!! Thanks for being AWESOME!!! Enjoy your post!!

Meet Ginger….. she looks scared to death of me! …. But she’s a sweety!

Blake wanted pictures with his girls… so sweet.

Love it:)

xoxo, Katelyn

    Is it just me or did she look a little like Taylor Swift in some of these photos…? Regardless, what a fun session! That dog is precious!
