Within minutes of walking up to a new couple, I can tell that we are truly a great fit. This was especially true with Hunter and Leah. It was border-line raining and we knew that we were taking a big chance still following through with their engagement session despite the forecast. They were so relaxed. I can’t explain how wonderful it is to work with couples that fully trust us. Leah found us years ago when I photographed her friend Katie’s wedding and she has been following along ever since.
Hunter started a new job the week following the shoot and so we made it a priority to get their session done rain or shine and it was worth the risk! Yes, it started pouring at the end, but we had a plan! We used the front porch of a cute historic front porch for the end of their shoot and it worked perfectly!!
We loved having some time to get to know these two and hear about their story and wedding plans. They spent the weekend doing “all things wedding” related and they kicked it off with a beautiful, summery session on the campus of the VMFA in downtown. Hydrangeas were blooming and Leah’s blue dress popped off of the bright neutral buildings!! Everything went perfectly…. even when they arrived in their second outfits and the rain started to fall. We saved the cute covered porch for last and that was a perfect decision!! I loved how these turned out and it makes me so excited to capture these two on their wedding day!!!
Enjoy my favorites from this casual, relaxed engagement session at the museum!!!
Leah and Hunter, thank you for trusting me and for also bringing us the sweetest gift for baby #4! You are so thoughtful!!!!
Here it is! Post one of twelve! I’m committing, once again, to blogging my favorite images each month of Everett’s first year and I’m excited about it because I know from past experience that this is truly the BEST motivation and accountability to stay on top of family editing!!
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!!!
