Annie & Keaton Fredericksburg, VA

June 25, 2020

Do you know how when your favorite people share their favorite people with you? It’s super amazing and awesome.

While on vacation I got an email inquiring about an engagement session which already makes me do a happy dance (I love people in love if you didn’t pick up on that already!), but then I saw it… Ava Laurenne Bride suggested you as a photographer!!

First of all, thank you ALB for being so incredibly amazing and good to me, and secondly thank you for sending me amazing and beautiful people. As soon as Annie mentioned that in her email I already knew we would be a perfect fit and that I loved her HAHA.

Annie, I am so beyond happy that I got to meet you and Keaton and that you trusted ALB and myself in this super fun season you’re in.

Although our fun date night got rained out the first go around, I think our evening last night was PERFECT and well worth the wait.

I love every single moment we captured and as you saw with my silly victory dances after literally every shot… they were even more amazing when I got to put them on the big screen to start editing. I simply couldn’t wait a single moment longer to get to share a small teaser of your session with EVERYONE.

These two are naturals (which makes my job unbelievably easy) and their body language towards one another is just incredible! They both radiated and beamed and so graciously laughed at all of my nerd jokes with me.

I don’t think Annie or Keaton knew how much joy they both brought me during their session (multiple times) and I really needed that. Our world really needs that right now.

I know that it was exactly what was needed and done at the most perfect time. I wish you both so many blessings in your lifetime together, I pray that your AZ wedding with family and close friends far surpasses anything you could dream of. Also, I like to travel if you happen to want me to join you and be the official paparazzi, I am game! 😉

I can’t wait to see you again, I am so grateful to now know you both.
