Kristina & Jason | Fredericksburg Engagement


I don’t think I have ever laughed so much at an engagement session!  Kristina and Jason reminded me so much of me and David.  Jason with the sometimes inappropriate humor and Kristina acting shocked but still laughing while trying to rein him in.  Seriously that is classic David and Melissa behavior!

Kristina and Jason have known each other since their school days.  As time went on they went their separate ways but reconnected over Facebook.  Kristina says Jason was liking everything she posted so she finally messaged him to see what he was up to.  Fast forward and now they are planning a beautiful wedding this fall at Kenmore Inn!

When chatting about their session they wanted something by the river that was local.  After living in the Fredericksburg/Stafford area for the last 8 years I finally know how to get down to the river near downtown Fredericksburg.  I still don’t know where the City dock is but I’ll find it at some point!  I’m just excited to finally have a local spot on the water to do photos :).  Apparently Kristina and Jason were very familiar with the spot, they used to hang out there as kids!  Maybe I should just start polling local Fred/Stafford people for good places to shoot because they know all the spots around town!
