We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

A Preview of James’ Story + Our New Season

  • A Story of Loss and Hope

In just a little over a week, it’s hard to believe, but it will have been 6 months since James’ birthday. Life while pregnant with James was extremely slow. Everyday seemed like a week and every week seemed like a month. After he was born, life seemed to pick up speed. Work began again and we filled our days off with fun trips and adventures. The grief, sadness and reality of what we lived through really set in for me in July and August. However, in the midst of pain, there was so much joy. If there is anything I have learned over these last few months, it is that joy and pain can exist simultaneously and I’m thankful for that!

Will + Allie | Engaged

  • University of Richmond Engagement Pictures

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!

Tommy + Kayla | Engaged

  • Engagement Photos at the Richmond Capitol

Tommy and Kayla made the drive down from Baltimore for their engagement session! They loved the look of the Richmond Capital and as soon as I saw their first outfit, I knew that this location was the right decision! It was classic and bright! You can’t tell at all that it was extremely overcast and dreamy when we were taking these photos! Tommy and Kayla came ready for anything! When the sunlight started slipping away a little earlier than we hoped because of the clouds, they worked with us moved quickly to ensure that we could fit two locations in!
