Family Formals & Breaking the Rules

  • Wedding Wednesday

BUSY! I feel like I’ve only been in the office for like an hour everyday and I have a pile of work just growing and growing by the hour! It’s that time of the year. College kids are leaving, school is getting ready to start, doctors appointments have to be made and I’m still shooting weddings every weekend! Whew! So this Wedding Wednesday is going to be short and sweet because I have to shower, do something with this crazy hair and run out of the in less than 30 mins!!! So! This is just a post to show brides that BREAKING THE RULES and tradition is really ok!

Downtown Richmond VA Photographer

  • Meet Katie

over somewhere new… completely NEW. Michael and I got married and moved to the west end of Richmond without knowing a soul. Well, we knew a few people but as far as our church family, we knew no one. It was great for our marriage. We had never experienced anything like that throughout our 8 years of dating. Starting brand new can be exciting but also a little scary.  We came into this new youth group knowing that these kids had been through a lot the last few years.  Some of them had watched numerous youth pastors come and go, each time thinking that “this was it, this one is going to stay!”… only to be let down in the end.


Watermarks Camp

  • High Rise Worship Band

me blogging about taking our kids on Winter Retreat back in January. Well, if you don’t remember, you can view it HERE!  We took them to Watermarks Camp in Scottsville, VA and we love that place! Absolutely love it! Michael and I went there in high school and then led retreats there when we were in college and now we’re bringing our own kids there! Crazy!! And when I say “kids” … you should know that I’m talking about our youth group kids…we consider them to be part of the family! And speaking of family, we have loved getting to know the Watermarks family so much over the last few years!
