believe there was still snow on the ground last week for Erin and Graham’s engagement session! I loved it. My e-sessions this winter have had such a fun winter-y look to them because of ALL the snow! Graham and Erin are actually from Charleston, SC and needed some engagements done while they were up near Erin’s hometown in Nelson County, VA. I’m sure the patches of ice and snow were not what they were used to. Can you imagine living in Charleston!? That place is so gorgeous and the weather is wonderful! If I ever get asked to shoot a wedding down there I think I might just do it for free because I would be on cloud 9
the whole time! Anyway, my time with Erin and Graham started at the Veritas Winery. This beautiful setting gave us some fun light to work with and we didn’t have to be outside in the COLD! That location is so stunning… if you’re a bride still looking for a venue I would highly recommend checking it out! Wait til you see the window shot in the reception hall….b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l! It was Erin’s idea to start here and I’m so glad we decided to try a little something new. Engagement sessions can all start to look the same if you’re not careful! Graham and Erin finished their session on some farmland near Erin’s home where she grew up and you know I always like shooting in locations that have some emotion attached to them. Erin loves the mountains and I can see why. I would love to wake up and have a view of rolling hills out of my window! (but I also love being 5 minutes from a Target so uhhh… I’ll stick with Shortpump!)
Because we had never met before, I was fun getting to know Erin and Graham and hearing about their life. There is no doubt in my mind that they are going to have a fabulous southern wedding! Erin, thanks for allowing me to document your love while you were up north!! What an honor! Enjoy my favorites!!
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful. These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
Whether you’re brand new to business or have been in business for quite a while, this brand new Youtube video is for you! Michael and I, early on in our business, struggled to relinquish tasks to other professionals outside of our business. Really…. It was more of MY STRUGGLE than his.
Welcome to December’s Student Spotlight!! It’s a new month and we have new photographers to celebrate!! I’m so thankful for them and for their willingness to give of their time and share their stories!!!
This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.
When Michael and I were in our early years of dating, I would go on trips with his family for Thanksgiving and summer trips to West Virginia and I spent time with his cousins! “Bri-Bri” was so little! He’s the youngest of all of the cousins and it’s crazy to think that he’s old enough to be getting MARRIED! He’s actually older than we were when we got married!! We have known Shannon for years and we were THRILLED when we heard that Brian had proposed because we always hoped that would happen!!!
Maybe it’s just me…. but I feel like this fall is FLYING by! It seems like just the other day that I was sharing about three more KJ Students who are doing amazing things in their businesses! Well, this weeks marks the beginning of November and I have three amazing students to introduce you too!!!
