Boats and Fast Cars Engagement Session | Katie + Anthony | VA Wedding Photographer | Melody Gillikin Photography

I met Katie and Anthony at Starbuck for their consult…and when they started rolling out their “wish list” for their engagement session…I have to admit I almost squealed OUT LOUD in StarBucks.

They had a boat and a cool car..and a sweet dog and wanted all three in their session…Boats and Fast Cars!  Win Win Win!

I love when my clients bring their ideas and their personality, their hobbies and favorite things (even pups and cars) to their engagement session.  It makes them fun and personal! Not your standard pose and smile sessions.  Although there is a lot of that that goes during the session….this just adds who you are together into the day! LOVE LOVE LOVE.

My wheels started rolling…and after a few late night messaging back and forth with Katie we nailed down our ideas,  the date and had our game plan together.   Once the day FINALLY  rolled around it could not have been more perfect….Puffy clouds..beautiful light..and all the pieces fell into place.  We were all stoked!

One of the reasons I love living in Hampton Roads…is because of this…you can go from water to country in a matter of miles!

Meet Katie and Anthony! Lordy! What a fun day!

This lonely solitary dock in the middle of nowhere needed to be shown some love.

This day would not have been possible without help!  Tug boat captains waived and cheered us on with honks… and the bestest man Andy drove their boat some so they could get out…

Team work makes the dream work!  We spotted the barge…and I said a simple oooohhh ahhhh…and Anthony was all over it…***Disclaimer!**  I never ever ask couples to go where it’s not safe…this was their idea and man it paid off…no pain no gain.

The sun was setting low over the cornfields…so we had to wrap it up but not before…
