I remember photographing James and Maggie’s wedding and just loving the fact that Maggie was so close with her sisters. My sister is my best friend and so I guess I notice other sweet sister relationships more readily because of that. All of these girls are just beautiful. They look so much like their mom and I loved photographing this amazing family! During Maggie and James’ reception at Pippin Hill Farm, I remember Maggie’s mom saying “We can’t wait to give you a call when it’s Emma’s turn!”.
I had just taken a picture of Chris and Emma on the dance floor and had thought that they were the cutest couple and so this was exciting! One of my favorite things that I’ve experienced in business over the last 10 years is the joy of being able to be a part of multiple weddings within one family! Michael and I truly begin to feel like a part of our client’s family and it’s such a special privilege to capture not just one, but TWO weddings for the same family! You can imagine how excited I was to receive Emma’s mom’s email this last year exclaiming that it was time for another wedding!! We are so honored to be their photographers!
As soon as I saw them the day of their engagement session, I knew it was going to be a great day. Their outfits were just perfect (Oh my gosh just wait until you see her beautiful dress!) and the weather was amazing. It was going to be a beautiful day! It may have been a bit humid but that is just par for the course in this part of the country! These two walked all over Georgetown with Michael and I. I took them up and down so many residential streets trying to find the best light and I think you’ll agree that we definitely found it! These portraits make me so happy!! Enjoy!
Emma you are so gorgeous! One of my favorites! Doesn’t this remind you of Charleston!? I love this light!
The golden glow! It was so beautiful!!
This beautiful wedding day took place in the rolling hills of West Virginia, just past the Virginia state line. Wild Goose Farm is a venue that I’ve never photographed before and let me tell you, it was a treat! We didn’t even have the sun join us for most of the day and yet we were able to capture beautiful portraits! Between the horses, old fences, stunning estate home, lily pad covered pond, old stone walls, rustic barn, open fields and a historic stone arch, I was in photographer heaven!
This session was just as sweet as it looks. We spent the evening with Megan and Tim in the country outside of Harrisonburg, Virginia. We were tucked away in the rolling hills in between beautiful fields and family farms. It reminded me all over again why I just love Virginia. We really have it all… beaches, mountains, history, and great schools! JMU, while it did play a role in Tim and Megan’s story, isn’t actually where it started!
Oh you guys…. you’re in for a TREAT! Seriously! I can’t wait for you to read about these amazing students and what they’re doing in their businesses!! I’m SO proud. It’s one thing to take a course and signup and it’s another to actually CHANGE YOUR LIFE and transform your financial situation. I could read stories of quitting jobs, finding ideal clients, booking high-end packages all. day. long!!!! Enjoy getting to know these amazing students of ours!!
Rhett’s at such a fun age! So many laughs, squeals, giggles and huge smiles. He’s our smiliest baby! He’s also our happiest baby! He’ll sit for an hour and play with his hands or his Mr. Moose. He’s joyful and sweet and spits up just like his brother!
I’m writing this as we are driving back home from Trevor and Alyssa’s wedding. Michael is driving and their images are backing up. I wanted to write this while the joy of today is fresh in my mind! We spent today with the sweetest people at one of the quaintest and most charming venues. Trevor is Tyler Herrinton’s brother and so in some ways, it kind of felt like a family wedding to us. It was such an honor to capture their special day…. especially after having to push it back by a year!
It’s May! May is full of birthdays in our family!! Lots of celebrating people who are special to us! That’s what we’re doing in this month’s Student Spotlight! We’re highlighting three students who deserve to be showcased and celebrated for all that they’re doing in their individual businesses. I’m so honored that I get to spend my days helping incredible people like Elle, Stephanie and Samantha! I hope you enjoy getting to know them!!!
