Katie and Jeff ‘s first meeting was a shot in the dark. Literally. During a campus-wide power outage at the University of Mary Washington, Katie and her roommate became fast friends with their neighbors down the hall and hung out waiting for the power to come back on. No one suspected that happenstance meeting was the beginning of something more between Katie and Jeff. In May of 2012, Jeff planned a weekend getaway to Barboursville Winery in Charlottesville, Virginia for Katie’s birthday. Katie had no idea and thought the trip was only a birthday present, Jeff completely surprised her by asking her to marry him!
Katie and Jeff headed out to Meadowlark Botanical Gardens and Old Town Alexandria for their engagement session. The day started off warm, bright, and sunny and faded in to a beautiful, crisp Fall evening. Photos were captured by Mark Maskell.
