This past September we did something new. We hosted a workshop at our friend’s farm in Lexington, Virginia!! Big Spring Farm is a magical place to us and we were excited to share it with 17 other photographers at our fall Workshop Experience! People flew into Richmond and DC and some drove for HOURS and HOURS to be there! It was an incredible event! The Farm NEVER disappoints. It’s just beautiful there!!

Our next workshop that’s happening in Richmond is sold out but we‘ll most definitely offer more in the future! This is one of our favorite aspects of the educational side of our business. We love the teaching and the instructional time with the attendees but we also LOVE the styled shoot! This shoot was a little more elaborate than normal simply because we had so much ROOM at Big Spring! The AMAZING Kaitlin Holland of The School of Styling planned and styled this shoot and it couldn’t have been more beautiful!!! I just loved her vision! And so did Style Me Pretty! They featured this shoot a few weeks ago and you can view it HERE!

Sometimes when I have ended wedding seasons in the past, it’s like the good Lord reminds me just how much I love what I do on that final wedding for the year. This is EXACTLY what happened this past weekend!

Kevin + Emily Water's Edge Country Club Wedding

Emily and I texted a few days before the wedding when the forecast looked a little worrisome. She was praying for the storm to change course but it didn’t. In fact, it became increasingly more and more threatening as the day went on.
