❝Give me quiet nights and still days, give me your hand, and hold it tight. Give me love with a promise of growth, and let the roots go deep. Give me sunny skies and soft grass, lay with me as we gaze at the clouds. Give me your time, with a world of possibilities full of laughter and healing. Give me a chance, and I’ll promise to learn as best I can.” – T.B. LaBerge
I met Kylie and Stephen in downtown Frederick a few weeks ago, right after Kylie had graduated from JMU and when Stephen only had a few days of teaching left for the school year. There was an arts festival going on around Carroll Creek Park and thunderstorms rolling in around us, but we managed to sneak in some great photos together anyway before the sun went down. I just loved walking around town with these two and hearing about their Asheville honeymoon plans, which consists of a few of my favorites things- donuts, mountains, and breweries anyone?!
Taking photos with them, felt a little bit like getting together with old friends, after we connected on our love for the Shenandoah Valley, the Harrisonburg area, and CRU. With little to no direction, K&S were so comfortable just wrapping up with each other and being so flirty and sweet that you could just tell their connection ran down deep. A lot of the time I have to wait months and months from photographing couples in between their engagement and wedding, but this time, their wedding is in just a few short weeks and I already can not wait to capture these two again on their special day. <3 //
