I thought “Aw, I think we’re done with “weddings” phase in our group of friends!” I remember that all of my roommates have SIBLINGS! The fun isn’t over yet!! I’m shooting two weddings in 2014 for the younger siblings of two of my college roommates and I couldn’t be more excited! One of those weddings is Jeff and Julia’s! We already know and love the Rice family so much and so it’s such an honor to be a part of another wedding with their family! This past Monday, I met Jeff and Julia in downtown Richmond for their engagement session.
Now when you look at these pictures, you’re going to notice how incredibly attractive they are! They’re such a gorgeous couple!! But what I wish I could show (and hopefully I do somewhat in the pictures!) is how genuine, down to earth and kind hearted these two are! Julia’s sister texted me before the shoot and said “You’re going to LOVE Jeff!” and she was right. I already knew that I loved Julia and so meeting Jeff and seeing them together was icing on the cake!! I absolutely loved our time together Monday evening and I cannot WAIT to share some favorites!! Jeff and Julia you guys are awesome!! I can’t WAIT for June!!They have the greatest smiles! Julia you’re stunning! Such classic beauty! Love it! Between the light and her smile, these are favorites! The sun came out just in time! Love these!!!!
It’s been a while since I’ve photographed an engagement session at beautiful Maymont Park. Meeting Ryan and Danielle there was perfect even though I totally forgot that Maymont closes so early! We heard a reminder that the park would be closing soon and just as I started to feel a bit panicked, the clouds cleared, the sun started to shine and I was able to capture the most beautiful light before we unexpectedly had to leave the park!
This beautiful day began in the historic manor house at Belmont Country Club. Abby was showing me her details and then she gave me a gift and told me to open it. I questioned her because it just didn’t seem right for the photographer to be opening a gift on the bride’s wedding day but she insisted! Abby had made me a custom cross-stitch of Michael and I with cameras in our hands! It looks JUST like us and I was just amazed at her talent and thoughtfulness!
Ah! It’s our FINAL STUDENT SPOTLIGHT!!! This July post has been a long time coming but it’s HERE and it’s LIVE and I want you to help me celebrate these amazing photographers who are making their dreams happen!!!
This six month update feels like it’s weirdly disproportionate compared to other monthly updates! Why is that? Well, last month I posted a couple of sets of images that were actually at the beginning of his sixth month and THEN we photographed multiple weddings, had several trips away from home for a few days and the dads were for several days!
Hope and Jesse are the sweetest couple. You can just feel it when you’re with them! You can see it when you watch them interact. You can hear it in the stories that their family members and best friends shared about them. They are truly soulmates and best friends. They have an undeniable love for one another and that is why even a rainy, misty wedding day could be incredibly vibrant, warm and joyful!!
Rhett’s fifth month was full of fun. It’s crazy to me that I know I only take my big camera to about 10% of the things we do in a month and yet each month is SO full.
