Washington DC Cherry Blossom Engagement

  • Jeff + Rosie | Engaged

are some things that you just can’t plan. They are out of your control completely. Cherry Blossoms and traffic are two of those things. You never know when they will be in full bloom and you can NEVER estimate DC traffic! I met Jeff and Rosie at Jeff’s home in Vienna before their shoot and planned to ride into the city together since parking was going to be nearly impossible for two cars. We shot a few images around Jeff’s amazing home and then we hopped in the car! Rosie’s mom and Jeff’s mom were so kind to drive us into DC! We thought we left with plenty of time but if you’re familiar

Here She Is!!!

  • The New House

probably thinking…. “Um Katelyn… are there going to be anymore house pics?! You kinda left us hanging!”. Well, there is definitely an explanation for that. The reason I haven’t been posting new house images is because well….. it’s pretty much DONE!!! Yea. Done. As in, we have running water, electricity, heat/air, flooring… all that is missing are a few pieces of trim. It’s CRAZYYYY!! It went from dirt to our dream home in a matter of three months! It’s just insane. Of course there have been some bumps along the road…. and before we close I’m SURE there will be several more but I’ve been told that is normal.

A Church Hill Engagement | Richmond VA Wedding Photographer

  • Kevin + Erika | Proposal

emailed me with a strange request. I’m used to boyfriends, fiance’s and husbands purchasing coaching sessions for their significant others but this one was different. Kevin emailed and asked if I would consider adding one more coaching date to my calendar for his girlfriend Erika. This month was a super busy one for us and so my initial reaction was “Well maybe we could make this work later in the summer!”…. and then I read the rest of his email. He explained that Erika was a big fan and she has been pursuing photography for a while now. She loved the blog and my business and it would be a dream come true to have a coaching session with me.
