…contacts me, I always ask about the wedding, their big plans, if they found a dress….etc. It’s so much fun to get to know my clients! …. Especially the ones that share the same love for exclamation marks as I do! Annamarie’s email was FULL of exclamation marks and I knew from that very first email that we were going to be friends! Good friends! I loved her and I loved her story. Annamarie and Ryan have such a refreshing and rich friendship and that makes their relationship so genuine. As soon as we started their session, they were laughing at each other….(photographer’s dream). If it wasn’t 90 degrees with 90% humidity,
I would have made their session 3 hours long! I loved my time with them and I can’t explain how excited I am for next June!!! Ryan and Anna will be celebrating their wedding day on her aunt’s estate, outside of Richmond. It’s BEAUTIFUL. We shot their engagements there and so I got to look around at all of the neat locations for their portraits. It’s going to be A-mazing! Between the river, the grassy field, the old vintage TEAL truck and the barn… someone is going to have to take my camera from me so that I don’t make them take portraits the WHOLE EVENING! The location is fabulous!
We had an amazing time together last week and as I left their session, I was overwhelmed with how blessed I am to have such amazing clients like these two. So Ryan and Anna, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this amazing new step in your life!! What an honor! I can’t wait to celebrate with you next summer!!! Enjoy some of my favorites!
How neat is the front of her aunt’s house?!
Aren’t they great?!
It’s hard to believe I’m writing this… my fourth birth story in four years. I’ve given birth in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. Just typing that makes me tired….. and so grateful…. unbelievably grateful. These last four years have been the best and hardest of my life. We cherish being parents and welcoming a new baby is hands down the most incredible thing we have ever experienced in our 18 years together. I’m so excited to introduce you to our newest member of our family and tell you the story of how he came into this world!
Whether you’re brand new to business or have been in business for quite a while, this brand new Youtube video is for you! Michael and I, early on in our business, struggled to relinquish tasks to other professionals outside of our business. Really…. It was more of MY STRUGGLE than his.
Welcome to December’s Student Spotlight!! It’s a new month and we have new photographers to celebrate!! I’m so thankful for them and for their willingness to give of their time and share their stories!!!
This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.
When Michael and I were in our early years of dating, I would go on trips with his family for Thanksgiving and summer trips to West Virginia and I spent time with his cousins! “Bri-Bri” was so little! He’s the youngest of all of the cousins and it’s crazy to think that he’s old enough to be getting MARRIED! He’s actually older than we were when we got married!! We have known Shannon for years and we were THRILLED when we heard that Brian had proposed because we always hoped that would happen!!!
Maybe it’s just me…. but I feel like this fall is FLYING by! It seems like just the other day that I was sharing about three more KJ Students who are doing amazing things in their businesses! Well, this weeks marks the beginning of November and I have three amazing students to introduce you too!!!
