Virginia Beach Engagement Session | Lindsey + Steve

Over the past couple of months, I can’t even tell you the amount of times we have had to reschedule sessions or rearrange our schedule because of bad weather! Lindsey and Steve’s session was initially postponed due to rain and I worried that might happen again, but we lucked out with one of the only sunny, nice days last week! Though it looks like our weather has finally turned the corner into spring, I was so glad to have a nice break from the rain for their engagement session!

Lindsey and Steve live in Virginia Beach and spend a lot of time together at First Landing State Park, so we met them there for their engagement photos! I loved that they brought their cute pup, Libby along too! Engagement sessions with pets are my favorite!!

Here’s a look at their session 🙂

Purcellville Wedding Sneak Peeks | Lauren + Mike

Can we talk about how crazy it is trying to run a business and move your whole life across town during your busiest time of year? Add to that your husband is still recovering from surgery and you have a very tired Katie! The move is going great, just lots slower and the rain is not helping much! Can someone please apologize to Mother Nature for whatever they did to make her so mad??

This weekend was a true first for us! We photographed Mike and Lauren’s wedding at her aunt’s home in Purcellville on Saturday, which also happened to be our five year anniversary! In five years of shooting weddings, I’ve never shot a wedding on my own anniversary, but it was so much fun (even with all of the rain!). I also couldn’t think of an better couple to share an anniversary with now! 5/21 is an awesome day, guys. Just saying! We also celebrated again on Sunday by going to the Jefferson for brunch and then making an Ikea trip for lots of house things.

I can’t wait to share more on the blog later this week, but for now, here are some sneak peeks from Lauren and Mike’s wedding day!!

King Family Vineyards Wedding | Laura + Will

So, confession time. Sometimes I get a little bit nervous when the first time I meet a bride and groom is on their wedding day! I’m somewhat of an introvert, so I love it when we get a chance to get to know our couples before the big day! We didn’t get a chance to meet Laura and Will for an engagement session prior to the wedding since they live in Colorado, but we were so thrilled to finally meet them this past Saturday on their wedding day!

Though we experienced almost every type of weather possible, I loved how Laura and Will just let it all roll off their backs (rain pun intended…it started raining right during their vows!!) and stayed so focused on each other and the wedding day. I never saw Laura not smiling!

King Family Vineyards was the perfect backdrop! I loved shooting there and felt that the overcast skies just added something special to the already gorgeous Charlottesville mountains!

Huge thank you to our friend Sarah Goodwin for shooting alongside me as my “temporary John” while he heals up from surgery!

Patio Decor Inspiration

One of the most exciting things about the house we’re renting is the fact that it has a patio and a small backyard! We haven’t had any outdoor space for four years (and what we had before that wasn’t really anything all that great anyway…) so we’re really pumped to have somewhere outside to hang out. Especially now that it’s starting to get warm! When we saw the house’s patio, I fell in love! I don’t have photos of it just yet, so you’ll have to take my word for it that it’s super charming!

Decorating is one of my favorite hobbies, so I’m really looking forward to personalizing the space for us to enjoy! Here’s my inspiration board for the space:

I’m envisioning a cozy, relaxed environment with some fun accent pieces like a wood topped table I’m hoping to DIY and an area rug with a southwestern flair to ground the lounge area. Cafe lights are also a must!

Now, I need your help! What are your favorite home blogs to follow?


Charlottesville Wedding Sneak Peeks

Though you wouldn’t know it by the weather we’ve been having, May wedding season is back! May tends to be one of the busiest months of the year for us because it’s so beautiful and warm out. It’s been pretty gross out the past couple of weeks (rainy and cold), but that doesn’t mean that the business slows down very much! Weddings still happen almost every weekend this month!

This Saturday began a five wedding adventure spanning the next two weeks! We photographed Laura and Will’s big day in Charlottesville at the beautiful King Family Vineyards! I’m so excited to share more of these later on this week!

On a personal note, we’re beginning our move tomorrow! Email responses will be slightly slower than normal since we don’t have internet yet at our new place, but I will do my best to answer as quickly as possible!

Hope you guys all have a wonderful week!!
