  • Matt + Tara | Engaged

remember being a senior in college and watching the new freshmen come in and feeling old. College happened in a flash!! One day I was a new freshman and then before I knew it, it was time to graduate! Tara was one of the underclassmen that made me feel old :) And to make me feel even older, she just graduated with a really fun class at CNU. I remember when they all arrived as freshmen and now it’s CRAZY that some of them are getting MARRIED! I was so excited to receive an email from Tara after seeing that Matt had proposed because I knew that their wedding is going to be so much fun! Michael and I love CNU weddings!!

Not only will their wedding be a blast this coming fall, but Matt and Tara are just beautiful! They’re a gorgeous couple and I loved shooting their engagement session!  They met Michael, Bokeh and I downtown in Shockhoe Bottom and we shot in some new Richmond locations that I had never seen before! I’m sure the canal walk area is really well known to those that have lived in Richmond for forever  but it was uncharted territory for me! I’m so thankful they were up for something new! Matt and Tara are probably the most easy going couple on the planet and I loved having a chance to get to know them a little better last Friday evening! Michael and I are so excited for them and I can’t wait to show some favorites! And ps. You know they’re a good looking couple when Michael walks by my office while I’m editing and says “Aww, they’re so cute”.  He’s right! Not only are they cute, they’re incredibly photogenic too! Photographers dream:) Enjoy!!

Love alley light!!

I’m not sure if it’s Tara’s awesome model face or the stripes or the black & white but there is something so classic about this one and I’m loving it!!!

Love this!!

Another favorite! So glad we overcast skies and bright colors to work with! 

Seriously? So cute.

A favorite!!!!

Loved these murals! 

xoxo, Katelyn

    Well! This is my very first comment on the blog! I have read it from beginning to end. I have learned all about CNU, Michael, The James and the Alsop families, your first home with the cottage office, your love for interior design (for just you, not everyone else LOL), 101010!!!! your obsession with teal and peacocks, your love for god (go god!), your progress and maturity as a photographer, j*, your coaching sessions, your ‘snapshots’, your new home, and my all-time favorite (honestly!) #BOKEHTHEBICHPOO! (I love him and secretly want a bichboo now!) hahahaha. I LOVE this blog! I am not even a photographer, and I absolutely LOVE this blog. Thanks to Terri Baskin for introducing me to you and I hope to one day meet you soon and talk about paint colors and wedding planning. Continue to be blessed and to BE a blessing to others! XOXO
