Amanda Veronee is one of those amazing women that has an idea and runs with it! It’s awesome! She wanted to host a floral conference and so she made it happen!! It was an honor to document this beautiful event that ended with dinner lakeside under the stars in Amanda’s backyard! It was gorgeous! The floral chandeliers were icing on the cake and I’m thrilled to share that I’m not the only one that thought it was gorgeous…. Style Me Pretty Living thought it was gorgeous as well! I’m so excited to share these images because they represent such creativity and vision.

And you know what I love about this shoot?? It was never supposed to be featured. It was just a dinner… a BEAUTIFUL dinner. Amanda just wanted gorgeous images of her vision and Tart Event Co’s hard styling work. But the funny thing is that when creative geniuses get together, stunning things are created and then we can’t help but submit them. So we sent this to Style Me Pretty Living and they loved it too! Enjoy these images and here are all of the incredible vendor involved! :

Leah + Hunter A Classic Commonwealth Club Wedding | Richmond, Va

The day started with bubbly personalities and bubbly drinks in the historic Linden Row house in downtown Richmond. I walked in, found Leah and then one by one I met her amazing bridesmaids. From the moment I met them all, I knew this was going to be a fun day, not lacking any energy! I loved the way this day started…. however, it got even better the moment dad walked in.

Matt + Abby | Married A Classic Middleburg Portrait Session

Gosh it feels good to do what I love to do again! This was my first shoot back since maternity leave ended and I loved every minute of it! I have known Matt and Abby for years and years and so while this was a true portrait session with paying clients and outfit changes, etc…. it was also a shoot with dear friends and it was wonderful to spend some time with them!

How to Document Your own Birth Using the R6 to Film Our 4th Baby’s Birth!

First of all, let me just say, I do NOT endorse not hiring a professional birth photographer! As you read this, keep in mind that I desperately wanted to have my friend and fellow photographer Jill with me during my fourth birth. I was heartbroken that she wasn’t allowed to be there!

Have you ever showed up for a wedding or a portrait session and took one look at the location and thought…. “You’ve got to be kidding me!!! How am I going to make this work?!” I have. I have had so many scenarios in my career where I have thought….“Ok, how in the world am I going to make this lousy location work as a great portrait location!!?”.

Student Spotlight April 2021

It still feels surreal to tell people about what we do for a living. We photograph weddings and we teach other people how to photograph weddings. It’s quite literally a dream job for a creative like myself who loves people! Every month when we do these Student Spotlights, I’m reminded all over again how much of a privilege it is to be a part of these photographer’s lives and play a small role in their stories.
