remember being a senior in college and watching the new freshmen come in and feeling old. College happened in a flash!! One day I was a new freshman and then before I knew it, it was time to graduate! Tara was one of the underclassmen that made me feel old :) And to make me feel even older, she just graduated with a really fun class at CNU. I remember when they all arrived as freshmen and now it’s CRAZY that some of them are getting MARRIED! I was so excited to receive an email from Tara after seeing that Matt had proposed because I knew that their wedding is going to be so much fun! Michael and I love CNU weddings!!
Not only will their wedding be a blast this coming fall, but Matt and Tara are just beautiful! They’re a gorgeous couple and I loved shooting their engagement session! They met Michael, Bokeh and I downtown in Shockhoe Bottom and we shot in some new Richmond locations that I had never seen before! I’m sure the canal walk area is really well known to those that have lived in Richmond for forever but it was uncharted territory for me! I’m so thankful they were up for something new! Matt and Tara are probably the most easy going couple on the planet and I loved having a chance to get to know them a little better last Friday evening! Michael and I are so excited for them and I can’t wait to show some favorites! And ps. You know they’re a good looking couple when Michael walks by my office while I’m editing and says “Aww, they’re so cute”. He’s right! Not only are they cute, they’re incredibly photogenic too! Photographers dream:) Enjoy!!Love alley light!! I’m not sure if it’s Tara’s awesome model face or the stripes or the black & white but there is something so classic about this one and I’m loving it!!! Love this!! Another favorite! So glad we overcast skies and bright colors to work with! Seriously? So cute. A favorite!!!! Loved these murals!
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.
