Quiet Waters Park Engagement Photos | Katelyn & Brendan

I am a bit behind in blogging portrait and engagement sessions so you can expect many more awesome photos to come in the next few weeks!!  I photographed a lot of weddings this spring and my number one priority has been editing and delivering weddings :)

Katelyn and Brendan were incredible during their Quiet Waters Park engagement session in Annapolis.  We had so much fun exploring all of the fantastic locations that the park has to offer.  We even got lucky with a sail boat going down the South River!  They were engaged at the beach so I was sure to photograph Katelyn's stunning engagement ring on pretty drift wood while we were at the waterfront.  We actually had their session back in April (!) hence all the beautiful spring colors and magnolia trees in bloom.  It was a perfect spring sunset engagement session!

These two are getting married on Kent Island at the end of September and I can not WAIT to spend their day with them!

Backyard Wedding in McLean Virginia | Logan & Kelly

On Saturday I had the joy and privilege of photographing Logan & Kelly's first day as Mrs. and Mrs. at Logan's childhood home in McLean, Virginia.  It was a perfect summer day and we were lucky with the storm that rolled through.  Just as the ladies were getting dressed for their first look a classic DC storm made a pop-up appearance.  Logan watched in wonder and proclaimed how much she loves summer storms (me too!), so it was quite fantastic.  Then *poof* just as quickly as it came, it left, and the two enjoyed their stunning summer evening wedding.  

Their love is such a beautiful thing and it has been incredible to witness and photograph them during their engagement and wedding.  Perfectly in sync, it couldn't be more clear that they are fated to be together!  I remember during their engagement session they told me how they met and they just knew.  It was a true a-ha moment and they declared "Oh, so this is what it's supposed to feel like."  Not long after meeting and dating the two got engaged and moved in together.  

Their wedding day was filled with special touches!  The Chuppah they were married under was constructed by Logan's father using bamboo from the family property, fans were made by Logan's sister in the style of their father's campaign fans from his days in politics, and the newlyweds had a grand sparkler exit in honor of the 4th of July weekend.  Janice with Bellwether Events kept everything running smoothly and Growing Wild Floral Company put together lovely florals and nature inspired centerpieces for their day, all while the Jackass Flats provided fun music throughout.  

Congratulations again Logan & Kelly!!  Thank you for allowing me the honor of working with you during this exciting and special time.  I wish you all the happiness in the world!
