If you’ve been following along for a while, you might already know Old Town Alexandria is one of my favorite spots for engagement photos in Virginia! My husband and I lived in Alexandria for four years, so we spend a lot of time in this charming little city. I don’t think I’ll ever get over the beautiful waterfront views or cobblestone pathways.
I was already looking forward to working with Mary and Kyle because they were sent my way by a close friend – Alicia Lacey, our own wedding photographer! Mary, the bride-to-be, is Alicia’s sister-in-law. Since Alicia and her sweet family are going to be in the wedding, I’ll be photographing the day so they can soak it all in.
It is such a huge honor to be trusted by a fellow photographer – especially when it comes to her own family! I can’t thank her enough for thinking of me for such a special day.
Alicia took their official engagement photos last year, which are beautiful as always! Mary and Kyle stepped in front of my camera earlier this fall so they could also get to know me before the big day. I always say engagement photos are more than just photos. It truly is a time to get to know your wedding photographer so you’re more relaxed on the big day.
Needless to say, these two are pros. They already had posing down, and they were complete naturals everywhere we went! We spent a beautiful morning wandering around Old Town, and I had the best time. It’s obvious these two are meant for each other, and I’m so thankful to be part of their story.
And I can’t forget to mention how much I loved Mary’s dress – those colors are gorgeous!! They definitely know how to get amazing photos, and I have no doubt their wedding will be stunning. Congratulations, you two! I am counting down the days to the big day so we can hang out again!
