Greg + Keri | Engaged

  • Old Town Alexandria Engagement Pictures

I feel like it would be accurate to name this the “blossom” shoot! There were so many opportunities to shoot underneath blooming trees and shrubbery during Greg and Keri’s engagement session! Every year I hope for a chance to shoot in the blossoms and I thought that my opportunity had passed. The peak of the cherry blossoms was over a week ago and so I assumed that all of the blooms were gone. I was very wrong! Old Town Alexandria was still full of flowers and it made for a perfect backdrop for Greg and Keri!

I honestly don’t know which part of their session that I enjoyed more… shooting in the most gorgeous light with magical petals falling from the branches or just walking and talking with this sweet couple and hearing their story! The more we learned about these two, the more we loved them! They volunteer with their youth group at church, they have awesome families, and last but not least… they have such a CLASSY style! :) What more could you want in a couple?! To top it all off, they are incredibly photogenic!

We walked around the streets of Old Town and found so many little nooks to shoot in! Michael had to reel me in because I could have kept Greg and Keri just on one street for two hours! I’m just in love with this session because of the color, the unique backdrops and of course, the blossoms!! Enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites and get excited for this wedding because Keri is going to be such a stunning bride! I can’t wait!

Oh how I love this!

LOVED this classy door! I felt like we were in Europe!

It’s true… Michael is the man behind the blossoms!

 The GLOW in this alley was on point!

 Looks like Charleston!


 Another favorite! :)

xoxo, Katelyn

    Sometimes, I see light like this, and I can’t help but think… if there is light in Heaven, surely, surely it must be similar to this one! It’s surreal. Your photos from this shoot are absolutely amazing, I am in love with so many of them! But the light… gah! It’s more than “just” amazing.

    Katelyn, I love these beautiful photos. I am seeing my back yard of Old Town Alexandria come alive with new beauty through your eyes and your photos. You continue to amaze and inspire me. A day without your photos is like a day without sunshine. I am so thankful I got to know you even for a little while.

    These are amazing photos – especially with the cherry tree blossoms falling around that gorgeous couple! Would you mind telling me where I can find that adorable pink gate in the brick wall? Such a great spot!
