We have been planning this for what seems like a YEAR! It may actually be close to a year. Christy knew the she wanted anniversary portraits and so last week, in the humidity of late June, we made it happen and these two couldn’t have been more amazing! They live all over the place. I’m serious. I think they mentioned having close to 15 flights back and forth from California to the East Coast in the next few months. That’s just CRAZY!! But you know what? They are making it work.
I think relationships that can grow and thrive in the midst of stressful seasons are the strongest. These two would love to settle down and know that they are going to be in one place for years and years but that’s not what life looks like yet. And that’s ok! They have embraced the crazy and they are making the most of it! Christy’s enthusiasm for her job and and her clients is just amazing. I knew I loved her from the moment she walked into our workshop. Her sweet smile and genuinely positive attitude towards everything makes it impossible not to love her!!
It was an HONOR to be the one who got to capture this season of their marriage! After being together for close to ten years, their love deserved to be celebrated and that’s exactly what we did! Despite the humidity, we walked around the historic Tuckahoe Plantation. Michael read all about the history of the place (that’s his History major side coming out!) and it’s really amazing to think that we get to shoot in such historically epic locations in Virginia!!! I love this sweet session and I hope you do too!!

This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
