Oh, sometimes we just can’t help ourselves. Visiting new, exciting places we’ve never been just puts the wind in our sails. There’s just something so invigorating and thrilling about loading up the car, typing in some obscure address into the gps and hitting ”Go”. It’s that sense of adventure. It feeds our creativity and gives us energy.
So yes, we will hop in that car and drive out to meet you who knows where because it is then, we are on an adventure. For Mackenzie & Dalton’s engagement shoot, our adventure was just over the border up in Virginia. It was an insanely windy, beautiful day. We had a blast exploring the beautiful lakeside with them and are super excited for the adventures life will take them on together.
It all started with these two over a message Rodney sent out to his fellow art majors through Facebook about getting a gathering of people together to go to an art club meeting and Kelly just happened to be one of them. The rest is history! How very awesome of a “How we met” story is that?? Together these two are ridiculously silly, laid back and creative. Back when we had our first meeting with them, there were several things that had us convinced we’d be a good fit. One of which being that they are cat people. We are animal lovers and lovers of animal loving people, especially cat people. Hands down. Cat people are our kind of people! We also discovered that Kelly’s brother, Sam, is an old friend of Jess’ from high school. Also, the groom had an epic name. He shares this same name with one of our cats, Rodney. Ok, so we are a bit biased.We had Kelly & Rodney’s engagement shoot up on the blog earlier this year and are beyond excited to finally get their summertime wedding up. This was our second time shooting at Yesterday Spaces this year and we must say that it is definitely on our list of favorite venues. It fit these two really well and that is so important for a couple to find in their venues. The connection Kelly & Rodney share is so very sweet and to witness and be a part of all the love and excitement of Kelly & Rodney’s wedding day was such a special honor. We are thankful and immensely happy for the two of them.
Today’s gonna be a good day cause we get to photograph these two again!! That’s right, it is officially their wedding day! We can’t wait to witness these two say their vows today and set off on their journey on building a life together. It’s inspiring and uplifting, every time. Until we have some sneak peaks to post from today, we hope you enjoy some of these favorites from their engagement shoot we did earlier this fall. The sneak peeks will be coming to ya first over on our Facebook page, so be sure to like our page and keep checkin’ in!
Get it? Got it? Good.
