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!!!!
32 Years. Over three decades. Can you image the impact? My dad accepted the call to our tiny little part of Virginia when I was just 18mos old.
Off season is here!! For wedding photographers, this is hopefully a time to rest and rejuvenate before busy season kicks back in. This is also a great time to focus on some back-end business tasks you might have had on your plate for a while now.
2021 was a year to remember! I decided to close out YouTube for the year, by reflecting back on life lessons 2021 taught me – what worked, what didn’t and what I hope to remember as I move into 2022.
You guys know talking about the tech side of a photography business is not my expertise… but thankfully it IS Tyler’s!!! I asked him to take over this YouTube video because I want to help you figure out which Mac is going to be the best one for you (even though I shouldn’t be the one to help you with that!!)!
It’s been years since I’ve done a round-up of some of my favorite images from the year! I struggle to narrow these down and so I decided to showcase some of the images with the best candid emotions!
Welcome back to another Behind the Image! In this series I take you behind the scenes of a real wedding day and then analyze one image! Today we’re analyzing an image from a wedding we shot back in May that should NOT have worked…but it did!!
