Kelsie + Byron | Fredericksburg Engagement Session Downtown Fredericksburg, VA

Couple Sessions

Kelsie + Byron just make my heart so happy. When I first met this two at my studio months ago, I loved them immediately! They are so sweet + genuine, I just can’t get enough of them!! As we were planning their engagement session, we knew that we wanted to capture the beautiful fall colors in downtown Fredericksburg. But we DIDN’T know that we ended up picking the BEST week to capture the fall foliage…the colors were AMAZING!

Not only were the fall colors incredible, but Kelsie + Byron brought along their brand new pup, Bella!! Just WAIT until you see her!! We explored the beautiful streets of downtown Fredericksburg together before finishing their session on the Mary Washington University campus…the ground was a BLANKET of beautiful leaves!!! I just loved it!

Enjoy some of my favorites from Kelsie + Byron’s engagement session! I can’t WAIT to shoot their spring wedding next year!
