Mary Pat & Tyler

September 25, 2020

I met Mary Pat and Tyler at the Foundry in Powhatan, VA… which if you’ve never visited you should if you can, it is beautiful! Top off a beautiful location with great company and what more could I possibly ask for?

I’m so grateful to Nicolle for introducing Mary Pat and I to one another. As she suspected we were a perfect fit!

I can’t wait for their wedding next year.  I love hearing about all of my couples’ details leading up to the big day but when I finally get to meet them, it piles on extra excitement onto already ecstatic feelings.

If you are asking yourself if that is even possible… yes, yes it is.

I even got to meet one of her closest friends who was fun company and a great golf cart driver I might add. (You really were SO much fun and an added bonus to my excitement for their wedding day!). I loved meeting Mary Pat’s right hand gal and main squeeze. I got to hear about how they met and the fun times they’ve all had together. It was a really nice break to the week that I definitely needed.

To see Mary Pat and Tyler interact and play around was the sweetest thing. I know I said ” they are SO cute” like a thousand times but they really are so sweet together! I am over the moon thinking about how much more magic we will capture on their wedding day!

Thank you for being brave and trusting me, even more for making every moment and image “the one”. Enjoy a few favorites and stay tuned for more of these two in 2021.

P.S. We shot in overcast and Blue hour… my favorite kinda session!

Photographers, don’t rush off after Golden hour, LOTS of goodies come from Blue hour also!
