Jameson + Lauren

  • A Rustic Nautical Inspired Wedding | Maryland Wedding Photographer

It’s mid October! Can you believe it?! I’m just trying to wrap my mind around the fact that I’m only 5 weddings away from the end of my busy wedding season! How did that happen?! I feel like it was just April and I was just getting started! Jameson and Lauren’s wedding day has seemed SO far off for such a long time, it was almost surreal to be shooting it!! Ever since their engagement session, I have been thinking about this wedding and all that Lauren was planning. She shared some ideas with me and I knew it was going to be beautiful but I had NO idea how AWESOME their theme would be!! Jameson and Lauren LOVE the water.

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!!
