Katie + Dan | Cure Coffee House Engagement | Norfolk, Virginia

Engagement Sessions

Katie and Dan have been joking with family/friends that their wedding is a “backyard wedding” since they are essentially getting married in their backyard……it’s just that their backyard isn’t a grassy acre of land, it happens to be the Waterside District in downtown Norfolk – haha.  They have lived there together for just about 2 years, and they just love everything Norfolk has to offer.  Since they are getting married downtown they will obviously have a lot of wedding photos near the venue/water etc, but for their engagement shoot they wanted to capture some pictures of them in other parts of Norfolk that they love.  They were looking for a pretty natural, fun, relaxed scene, and really just pictures that capture a day in the life of them enjoying life in downtown. So Cure Coffeehouse was the perfect place to photograph just that!

They met in graduate school at JMU.  They were in the same program, and also co-workers. Dan proposed to Katie during 4th of July weekend last summer up in Maine.  They were on vacation with Kaite’s family, and he proposed at sunrise at one of their favorite locations (a lighthouse along the ocean).  Katie said it was beautiful and perfect, and their bulldog Troy was there too to witness it all! Make sure to see his adorableness at the bottom of the blog. He was so cute, and joined them for a few photos on the cobblestone streets of the Freemason District.  

This was such a fun Engagement Session! I absolutely loved capturing our couple enjoying something they share together!

We can’t wait for their July wedding at Half Moone in Norfolk!
