Love at First Sight for Katie and Drew
It was love at first sight for Katie and Drew. Quite fitting for their personalities, Katie and Drew met at a triathlon. Drew is the track and cross country coach at Deep Run High School. In addition, he works for St. Mary’s School. Katie is currently attending school at Virginia Commonwealth University, obtaining her teaching degree. The couple both have a love for teaching as well as athletics and running.
The engagement shoot had a more casual and laid back feel as we traveled around Richmond to several different locations. We started on the field and bleachers at Deep Run High School, in the West End of the city. This is where Drew coaches and it represented their mutual interests. The Richmond City river area was also a favorite. Here Jamie was able to use the colors and textures from the environment to complement their attire. Also, at this location they had a neat experience when the train crossed the tracks as they were walking under the trusses. Did you know that according to Wikipedia, Richmond is one of the only places in North American where three train tracks cross at different levels in the same spot?

Even after getting stuck in traffic we were able to get several beautiful images.
We had such a great time photographing Drew and Katie. Every time Drew looks at Katie, he just smiles. We look forward to photographing wedding in June of 2018 at the Jefferson Hotel.
