Katie + Ryan | Engagement Session Downtown Fredericksburg, VA

Katie and Ryan…oh my goodness, where do I even begin with these two!? I knew that their engagement session was going to be incredible from the start because Katie emailed me asking for florist recommendations for a NECKLACE for her pup at their shoot. My heart can’t take it. But then I got to finally meet Ryan on the day of and these two are a match made in heaven! Working with them was a dream come true and they made my job WAY too easy!

We explored some of my favorite downtown locations with their sweet pup, Bentley for their shoot. It was a toasty, humid summer day but you would NEVER be able to tell! Katie is a wedding planner herself (take a peek at her site here!!) and she created the most adorable styling and props for their shoot, too! I just loved everything about it and cannot wait to be a part of their wedding day next year 🙂 Enjoy some of my favorites!!
