I met Amy & Rob on a HOT Saturday evening in one of Richmond’s most popular areas, Scott’s Addition.  The original plan was to begin their engagement session at The Veil brewery, but when we got there, there were SO many people, we opted to keep moving and explore Scott’s Addition a bit more! We […]

One of the most frustrating parts of shooting details is nailing the ring shot and making sure that first, it’s in focus and second, you can see enough of the ring for the shot to make sense.   I admittedly have such a hard time nailing the ring shot because I have incredibly shaky hands. […]

McKenzi & Michael were married on a beautiful Saturday in Bedford, VA at Sierra Vista.  McKenzi & her girls spent the morning being pampered by Jessica Cominskey Hair Design & Summer Hubbard Makeup while sipping mimosas.  They said their ” I do’s” in front of family and friends overlooking the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains at Sierra Vista. In addition to the […]

Sean & Morgan met in college at Longwood University.  They met their freshman year as they were both pledging a fraternity and sorority.  They have been together ever since and are finally tying the know next June at the beautiful Evergreen Country Club!  Sean proposed to Morgan a few months ago on a super cold, […]

Preparing to photograph a wedding can be a daunting task.  You want to make sure you’re prepared but you also don’t want overload yourself.  There are so many times during the course of a wedding day that you’ll realize you need something you may not have on you, so going into it as prepared as […]

I know I keep talking about “busy season” and “wedding season” and how it’s coming (in my head, I say it like “Winter is coming” GOT reference?!).  But it’s true!  It’s this looming thing that is coming and there’s no way to stop it.  And honestly…busy season is a GREAT season.  Busy means that good […]

I’m re-sharing this post from last year because (1) it’s super helpful and (2) I’m preaching to the choir!   I feel like my off-season flew by.  Between raising my 1 year old, prepping this 100 year old house to sell, starting the mentoring wing of my business, and so much more, I’ve gotten behind in […]
