always been really proud of the fact that Michael and I have been together for SO long. I mean, dating for 8 YEARS is impressive, right? I think so. We’ve been together since I was 15 and he was 17. So when I’m walking around with my couples during an engagement shoot and I ask them how long they’ve been together, I almost ALWAYS have them beat by at least 4 years… welp! Not this time! Nope. Aimee and James have broken the record. 12 YEARS! They have been dating for 12 years and they would win every “Long term dating” contest by a landslide!!
As we walked around Main Street in downtown Richmond and dodged the VCU students that were leaving campus for the day, we got to know each other. Aimee and James are tying the knot next month and we’re excited to be a part of their big day! I’m excited to capture their day and their love for each other but I’m also excited to celebrate with them…. especially since Michael and I totally understand how awesome it is to FINALLY be official after almost a decade of dating! It’s going to be so much fun!! Seriously, Aimee has great things planned for her big day!! I can’t wait! So enjoy these engagement pics for now and start looking forward to their March wedding!! It will be here before we know it!Love this! Seriously Aimee?!
When we first decide if we’re a good fit with our potential KJ Couples, we’re looking for a few things…. one of those things is that this couple keeps joyful! We’ve found over the years that couples what take themselves super seriously aren’t always the best fit for us! We love it when couples let their guard down and allow us to get to know them during their engagement session.
Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.
My review of the Canon EOS R6 after shooting a full wedding day is LIVE on Youtube! I was so nervous to use a brand new camera system for full wedding day… I had my Mark IV ready in my bag just in case… but thankfully, I never had to use it! I was really hoping that I would love it and feel comfortable with it….
This wedding venue may look familiar to some of you who have been following us for a while! I photographed Meghan’s brother’s wedding a few years ago at this very same farm and venue!
Natural light photographers…. (flash photographers, we know how you would handle these scenarios and that’s awesome for your style! This is for the natural light folks!)
I’ve been hoping for this day for a very long time…. but I wasn’t sure that it would ever come. That sounds dramatic but let me explain. I LOVE my website company. Showit is incredible and the more I learn about and experience other platforms for hosting and creating custom websites, the more I realize, they aren’t really, truly “custom” at all. Showit is the website design platform for the creative. Hands-down. It’s so powerful, so intuitive and so easy to use. Years ago, Showit created a way to implement a Showit theme onto a Wordpress blog!!! Genius! I couldn’t wait for my blog to be a Showit blog…. but it never happened.
