Chelsey + Marc | Fawn Lake Engagement Session Spotsylvania, VA

Couple Sessions

This engagement session was only TWO nights ago, but I just couldn’t wait to blog it!!! I collaborated with Amanda Veronee and Katherine Elizabeth Bridal to put together a styled engagement session for Chelsey + Marc! I met Chelsey last year at her friend’s bridal session and we immediately hit it off! We were already planning to have lunch that same week, and she quickly became one of my closest and favorite friends. She then became my second shooter and has worked with me on almost all of my weddings this year! She is the absolute SWEETEST and, even before I had officially met him, I knew Marc was going to be amazing, too!

Then, after I already loved Chelsey to death, she asked me to photograph her wedding next year in the BAHAMAS!? Uhm…OF COURSE I will!? I am so blessed to know these two + even more blessed to call them friends. When their engagement session finally rolled around this week, I just knew we had to do something special! I am head-over-heels in love with each and every one of these images. Especially the ones with their cute daughter, Harper! She stole she show and I just adore her!!!

Chelsey + Marc: Thank you so much for being so good to me! I cannot WAIT to shoot your wedding in April!



LOVE this one!!!


How stinking CUTE is Harper!?




Her RING! Gah!
