Early Morning Engagement Photos: Katy + Parker

early morning engagement

I’m not a huge morning person, but these stunning photos of Katy and Parker captured by Nessa K Photography were definitely worth the early morning wakeup call! Katy even wore her mother’s wedding dress for the first part of the shoot (so sweet!) and they picked a field near her grandmother’s house in Frederick, Maryland where the barley was growing golden. They started the shoot at 5:45 a.m. on a foggy morning. Totally worth waking up early for. Congrats to Katy + Parker!
