Mac + Katelyn | Engaged

Oh this shoot! What a dream! It’s always a little risky shooting in the dead of winter. Mac and Katelyn were up for the challenge! It was a gorgeous day… and a shocking 38 degrees! We chose to focus on the fact that it could have been freezing AND rainy and it wasn’t! It was a beautiful, sunny afternoon. Michael and I drove out to Mac’s parent’s country home just outside of Charlottesville. As soon as we pulled up, we were in awe of this location. Michael and I LOVE real estate. We love seeing beautiful properties and so this was such a treat! Mac’s family’s property holds a special place in their lives. It’s where they go to relax.

It’s where friends come to hangout and last but not least, it’s where Mac proposed. The proposal happened on the outdoor patio next to the fire. This area overlooks the backyard and the river that runs through the bottom of the property. In the distance, there are mountain views across the entire horizon. It’s stunning.

As we walked and talked and tried to stay warm, we got to know these two a little bit. We also got to know SOPHIE! I left wanting a little Westie of my own! Sophie is adorable and she just ran around exploring while we took pictures in the fields, on the rocks and on “Christmas Tree Hill”.  Christmas Tree Hill is there Mac’s family has planted past Christmas trees and it’s one of the best views on the property! I could have shot here for hours!

Despite the cold, this was a wonderful shoot! Not only did we get to spend time with Mac and Katelyn, we also had the opportunity to meet both sets of parents. I always love it when this happens because we will have several familiar faces on their wedding day. Their wedding is this summer and it’s NOT going to be 38 degrees! So if we had fun in freezing temperatures, imagine how amazing it’s going to be in summer time!!

Enjoy the first engagement shoot of 2015 everyone!!!!

That area to the right of them? That’s a natural swimming hole that it is over 10 feet deep! SO awesome!! 

This was one of the first pictures I took… and I knew it was going to be a beautiful shoot! :)

One of my favorites!

Sweet Sophie! 

This light was so amazing! 

Mac used an heirloom diamond to create Katelyn’s ring and it’s stunning!

xoxo, Katelyn
