I am a sucker for Fall weddings, I mean, who isn’t! The smell of leaves burning in the back of someones yard, the cool breeze over your skin, enough to give you just a nip of goosebumps, and the warm sun trying to fight its rays through the autumn clouds. Shavawn & Kyle had this exactly {with a touch of “winters coming” wind} to a ‘T’ during their wedding day last early October. To me & Jessica {my lovely second shooter}, this day was pure perfection to shoot a wedding, and we couldn’t wait to get started.

 We both started with the bride & groom while they got ready. I remember first walking into the hotel to the stunning Shavawn, she was in her adorable patterned robe getting her makeup on. Shavawn & I are just like old friends, so we immediately hug each other & start gossiping about the day ahead! She was OVER the moon excited to finally be marrying the man of her dreams, and rushes of emotions frequented her facial expressions from then on. I cannot tell you enough good things about this wonderful couple I was truly blessed to meet, and shouldn’t probably start to or I’ll be typing a book! 😉

  While Jessica captured Kyle getting ready at Waldenwoods , we made our way over to the venue to get ready for the ceremony. As you will see, Shavawn & Kyle had thee perfect setup for a rustic wedding!

I think I will let just a few of my favorites from their day tell the rest of the story for you, because as you all know, my pictures are WAY better than my words will ever be. So, at last, enjoy Shavawn & Kyles wedding at Waldenwoods!

Meet Kate

- nicole G.

 I cannot imagine our special day without her. From the moment I inquired back in August of 2020, to our wedding day October 2021, Kate was with us every step of the way. She was amazing at communicating, answering my (many) questions, and making us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Throughout this process, she\ became a great friend as well. On our wedding day, she made sure we stayed on track with timing, and made it a priority to ensure my husband and I were taken care of. Her positive energy, flexibility, and expertise made the day so much fun and so memorable. Kate perfectly captured our love--her photographs are of the highest quality and have unique touches that represent each of her clients. We are so very thankful that we had Kate be apart of our wedding day. She went above and beyond to make our day everything and more!

" The best decision I made was having Kate as our wedding photographer!"

We were so lucky to have Katelynn as our photographer! She was truly amazing to work with! We found Katelynn through a friend who had previously booked her for her wedding. Wedding photos were really important to me and I wanted memories that we could cherish for the rest of our lives. After seeing her work, we knew that we wanted her to capture our wedding day! She made coordinating locations and poses stress free. We had a large bridal party and were a little worried about pictures being chaotic, but Katelynn was so patient with everyone and made it look like a breeze! Her kindness radiated all day and our families could not say enough good things about her. She was so great at making us feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera! She also made my sunset and veil photo dreams come true with her amazing photography skills! We are so in love with every picture that she took! She captured the best memories for us and we can’t recommend her enough!
