• Amelia's Bridals

“rolling with the punches” comes to mind when I think about Amelia. This girl has had some CRAZY speed bumps along her wedding planning journey and she just kept on going.  Plans changed and new plans were made and her wedding day was perfect this past Saturday! So when her first bridal session got rained out, she didn’t blink an eye. We just rescheduled and made it happen the following week!  I met them close to where I grew up in Caroline County and we drove down some LONG dusty roads to find these locations. Now I’ve lived in this part of the country for 20 years…. and I have never even SEEN the roads we were on!

As I followed them down an old hunting path for several miles my thoughts were this: 1. The Toaster (aka my box car) is not going to MAKE it! and 2. Where the heck are we?!!!.  We stopped at a cute rickety old bridge and began there. Then we proceeded to DRIVE OVER the rickety old bridge on to our next location!  I’m just thankful I wasn’t in my old VW bug… that car was NOT made for off-roading bridal shoots!


Amelia’s parent’s joined us for this shoot and it was a fun evening to just relax and get excited for their big day! Amelia looked amazing and I squealed when she got out of the car with a beautiful hairpiece and ruffles galor!  Enjoy some of my favorites and get excited to see their wedding tomorrow!!!

And just for humor’s sake…. this is me taking those field shots! Michael did NOT approve of this! The poor toaster had a rough day!

    Oh man, I love her hairpiece! And dang, she’s BRAVE. I never would have walked into a field of tall grass like that prior to my wedding. Beautiful shots, girl!

    great shots, Katelyn! i did have to laugh at the last one, though. looks EXACTLY like me during shoots! haha! the most memorable one in a field was one in Texas at dusk…think mosquitoes galore, burrs, and me falling into a pitted area and cutting my leg! the shots came out but i left rather bedraggled! oh, the things we do for a great image ;)

    Abby, I totally agree! I was thinking how brave she was for venturing into what looked like damp territory in that gorgeous dress. Love these pics, Katelyn…they have a slightly different feel (in a good way!) to your usual shots…Amelia seems more contemplative and the whole thing just looks serene and elegant.
