Anytime that we’re shooting in the late summer I’m always praying for a little relief from the heat. It’s HOT in Virginia in July and August. Thankfully, Tori and Logan chose Libby Park for their portraits and there was an amazing breeze that broke up the intense August humidity!! We weren’t the only ones taking advantage of the beautiful location and perfect light. We passed THREE different photographer friends during this shoot!! It was a fun evening capturing this exciting new season in Tori and Logan’s lives, but it was also so great just getting to know them even better.
Logan and Tori have this sweet way of making each other laugh, and as a photographer, this is like striking a gold mine!!! They were so much fun in front of my camera, and it makes me excited for next summer when they become husband and wife! However, there is a part of me that cannot believe that TORI is getting MARRIED, because she used to be in the Gayton youth group back when Michael was a youth pastor! I remember her in high school and I can’t seem to wrap my head around the fact that she’s out of college and has a diamond on her left hand! (A gorgeous diamond by the way! Way to go Logan!)
Tori is a planner at heart and has gotten so much accomplished in a little amount of time! They haven’t been engaged very long, and her whole wedding is basically planned! She even has a DRESS! Amazing!!! Michael and I are looking forward to spending the day serving these two and their entire family. It’s an honor to be asked to capture wedding days for our past youth group kids! It’s such a rare privilege to be invited back into this new season of their lives in such a unique way, and we don’t take that for granted!!
Enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites!! And Ps. If you think “Wow, there are a lot of images with those blooms!” I couldn’t help it! They were perfect with Tori’s dress!!
These two…. they laugh so easily! It’s seriously the best! My FAVORITE!!!!! Tori you are so gorgeous! Another Favorite!
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!!
