Kate & Matt || A Colonial Williamsburg Engagement Session

It’s always nice to experience a blast from the past!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Kate, a high school classmate of mine; in school we had sung together in choir and we graduated the same year. Kate and her fiance, Matt, are getting married in Fredericksburg next October 7th…which also happens to be mine and Jon’s anniversary!

Well, Kate booked a local photographer in Fredericksburg a while ago for her wedding and was looking forward to taking fall-themed engagement pictures to go with their upcoming October wedding. However, on the day of their scheduled session, their photographer found out she was going to receive a kidney transplant. CRAZY.

This was INCREDIBLE news for their photographer, however, it put a bit of a kibosh on their fall-themed engagement photo plans…until Kate remembered that I’m only a few hours away in Virginia Beach :). Kate emailed me and we immediately set about making plans for their fall-themed session in Williamsburg.


How cute are they?


What’s more fun than goofy hats in Colonial Williamsburg?



Sneaking off for a few smooches…


It was a pleasure reconnecting with Kate to capture some of these special moments between her and Matt.

Here’s wishing them a lifetime of happiness and healthy/smooth sailings for a gorgeous autumn wedding in 2017!

Just kidding, she always avoids dairy; stupid lactose :-p
