They met in law school eight years ago but that isn’t really where their story began. They knew of each other in school but in Allie’s words, she was the nerd and Will was Mr. Social. It wasn’t until last year that they connected and it was pretty obvious that they were an amazing match. They spent a lot of time getting to know each other even in the midst of being long distance with crazy work schedules. As they were beginning to get to know one another Allie jokingly asked Will to send her his dating resume…. and he did!
I was somehow lucky enough to get to read it when Allie and I were first emailing to see if we were a good fit and it was extremely entertaining! How could a girl say no to a guy with access to adorable Labradoodles through his mom and sister, and who’s office smells of rich mahogany and leather bound books? It gave me a great preview into Will’s personality and it made me 100% sure that we would be a great fit. If anything, I knew that Will and Michael could share in their love for Anchorman and would have something in common!
Another reason that I knew that we would love working with these two is because we actually photographed Allie’s sister’s wedding years ago! Mike and Kristin’s wedding seems like it was so long ago but it’s one we will never forget! It’s such an honor to be invited back into another exciting season with a family that we already know.
Enjoy Will and Allie’s beautiful fall engagement session at the University of Richmond! We even took a few pics downtown in Carytown since that is the location of their first date!
This session took place just 45 minutes before their welcome dinner the night before their big day! Honestly, we couldn’t have asked for a better outcome!
Our life has been a whirlwind in the best kind of way this summer! Life sure looks a lot different than it did just a few years ago and it’s about to change AGAIN!

When you’re sorting 5,000+ photos after each wedding, staying organized is a huge priority!
We met Nicole and Matt the day before their wedding day in downtown Chicago. Normally, we prefer to do a full engagement session with our KJ Couples before their big day but that really wasn’t possible due to our schedules and the long distance. Thankfully, meeting the day before was absolutely perfect and it prepared all of us to have a dream wedding day in the Windy City!
Have you had a troublesome groom in the past? They don’t cooperate with the poses and just want to get back to the party?
