Ty and Gabi booked us for their gorgeous 2019 Pippin Hill wedding around the same time that we were finding out about baby James’ diagnosis. They were so incredibly sweet and understanding. Every time we needed to readjust their engagement session date they were so gracious. We are so thankful for such sweet and caring clients during this season of our life. As I emailed back and forth with Gabi I realized that she and Ty have quite a demanding schedule. They are so dedicated to their work, and the best time to get together would be for a sunrise shoot! Michael and I headed up to Olde Town Alexandria and met these two at 6am!
The clouds were heavy and I secretly prayed that the rain would hold off for us. We had a few sprinkles throughout the first 10-15 minutes, and Ty and Gabi were not alarmed. They were just excited to be spending time together and having their portraits done! The heavy rain stayed away and we were able to capture some beautiful images of these two!
I think my favorite part of our time with Ty and Gabi was just getting to know them. They are so easy to be around, and I can easily see how they are made for each other. Gabi is so much fun, gorgeous, and has the most amazing smile. Ty is so calm, easy to talk to, and smiles at Gabi in a way that will make you melt. I honestly don’t think that these two could take a bad picture!
Michael and I loved our time with Ty and Gabi, and it seems sad to think about how long we have to wait to see them again! I am so excited to see these two in their wedding attire and capture their day! Enjoy getting to know them via their engagement pictures!!!
Thank you Ty for wearing a sweater that matched the wall! I love these! If you’re wondering how I got so lucky to have these two as a KJ Couple… I have no idea. But I’m for SURE lucky! They are going to be so much fun to photograph on their wedding day! Whoever lives at house 108 on Olde Town’s famous cobblestone street thank you for your perfect shutter colors! One of my favorites! This street will never get old to me!
32 Years. Over three decades. Can you image the impact? My dad accepted the call to our tiny little part of Virginia when I was just 18mos old.
Off season is here!! For wedding photographers, this is hopefully a time to rest and rejuvenate before busy season kicks back in. This is also a great time to focus on some back-end business tasks you might have had on your plate for a while now.
2021 was a year to remember! I decided to close out YouTube for the year, by reflecting back on life lessons 2021 taught me – what worked, what didn’t and what I hope to remember as I move into 2022.
You guys know talking about the tech side of a photography business is not my expertise… but thankfully it IS Tyler’s!!! I asked him to take over this YouTube video because I want to help you figure out which Mac is going to be the best one for you (even though I shouldn’t be the one to help you with that!!)!
It’s been years since I’ve done a round-up of some of my favorite images from the year! I struggle to narrow these down and so I decided to showcase some of the images with the best candid emotions!
Welcome back to another Behind the Image! In this series I take you behind the scenes of a real wedding day and then analyze one image! Today we’re analyzing an image from a wedding we shot back in May that should NOT have worked…but it did!!
