A Bridgewater Engagement

  • Matt + Katherine | Engaged

is about to get REALLY girly REALLY fast!! The amount if pink, orange, & sparkle that’s included in the session makes me happy!! I love it when brides bring props to make their shoot a little extra fun! However, Matt and Katherine didn’t need to bring anything to make their session a blast, they were a JOY to work with!! Such a sweet, fun loving couple and I think Katherine was BORN to smile!! That girl is SO happy, it’s contagious!!!  Between the props and the puppy and the weirdly WARM december weather, we had GREAT shoot!! I met these two at a friend’s property in Bridgewater, VA. The front yard overlooked the valley and

we were out there just long enough to shoot what we needed and then see an amazing sunset! I seriously hope Michael and I can retire somewhere on top of a mountain one day because GOSH that view is amazing!!  I had such a great time with Matt and Katherine and like most sessions, the time just FLEW by!  These shoots are SUCH a tease because I get to hangout with these awesome people and then I don’t get to see them for like 8 months! CRAZY!!! I can’t wait to see them again on their wedding day and photograph all that Katherine is thinking up in that crafty mind of hers!!!  Enjoy some of my favorites and have an amazing Thursday!!

I look like I could be related to their puppy… our hair is almost exactly the same color!

ha! This cracks me up!!

Yessss.. .Katherine you’re adorable! 

So sweet!!


Katherine your colors were on point!!! Love the blue!!

Here comes the PINK!!

So cute!!

Some of my favorites!


And you all know I’m not a silhouette girl… but sometimes you just have to shoot one!  

xoxo, Katelyn
