• Matt + Rebekah | Engaged

WAY too many pictures this time. I really have a problem with narrowing down images for the blog. I thought it would get better with time. You know, after posting HUGE blog posts for two years, I thought I would get tired of all the work and would start selecting less images to post.  Well, that day still hasn’t come. I’m still posting a BAZILLION images because I love showing them! My couples are amazing and we work hard at their e-sessions to create great images… so why not share them!? Right!?  Well, I don’t really even know where to begin about these two. Rebekah is a wonderful

photographer and when she emailed me about shooting her wedding I was thrilled and nervous at the same time!! It’s such an honor to shoot another photographer’s wedding but it can also be intimating… these pics have to be AWESOME! Rebekah and Matt are two incredible people and I feel beyond blessed to be working with them! They met last October…. as in, a few weeks after I got MARRIED…and they will be married exactly a year from when they started dating…AH! I can’t even imagine!  I just couldn’t believe it! Of course that seems crazy to me… the girl who dated her husband for 8 YEARS! I love that they just KNOW.  They have no doubt that they are meant to be together forever. Matt said that he started saving for the ring a month after they started dating. How awesome is that?!


These two are so excited and in LOVE! It’s beautiful. You’ll be able to see that throughout their WHOLE post. They interact in a way that is so natural and they are so comfortable with one another! We shot in Georgetown and I must say… I’m in love with that place! I have driven through a few times but I had NEVER shot a session there until Monday! I was working with the most amazing couple, a gorgeous location and amazing light. The afternoon was perfect!…. Except for a little rain and me falling UP THE STAIRS… yea, that just happens to me periodically, I blame my size TEN feet! It’s ok, everyone needs to be humbled every now and then right?! haha


Matt and Rebekah, spending the afternoon with you reminded me of why I am in love with what I do.  I left feeling inspired and wanting to go home and hug my husband!! I love capturing your love! Enjoy!!!!

Love these two!!

Michael saw these while I was editing and said “Whoa! That looks like somewhere in Europe!” I agree. I’m a new fan of Georgetown:).


Really?! How are so guys so cute? Love this one.

And this was right as the rain started…

Whoever’s garage this is… I thank you! And to make this picture even funnier… they were getting rained on!

But they didn’t care!

Bling! bling!

I’m loving the ivy!

Don’t you love Rebekah’s SHOES?! If I could walk in those… I would buy a pair!


So gorgeous.

Couples that will lay down and KISS in the middle of the sidewalk make me happy.

Love it!!

Gosh….Matt and Rebekah interact SO well for the camera! Who’s excited for their wedding?!! I AM!!!

Ok… while they were changing, I just had to stop an pay Georgetown Cupcake a visit!


ah!!! I could have shot them all day!

  36. What to wear for your Engagement Shoot » Rebekah Hoyt Photography reply

    […] (Recognize those people?!)  In the same way, I told Matt that I LOVE this shirt on him.  Don’t ask me why (because I love his plethora of plaid button down shirts – he’s got great style!) but there is something about this light gray thermal that I just love on him.  I told him that it was one of my favorites and I really wanted him to wear it for some of our pictures, so he did!  (Obviously I did not take this picture, the fabulous Katelyn James did!  You can see more from OUR engagement shoot HERE!)
