A Canal Walk Engagement Shoot | Richmond Va Wedding Photographer

  • Matt + Tara | Engaged

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!!

Maymont Park

  • Brittany's Bridals

session definitely deserves the “fairytale” title. I arrived at Maymont to photograph Brittany’s bridal portraits without ever meeting Brittany beforehand. As soon as I walked through the door of that little bridal room, I knew it was going to be a phenomenal day of shooting!! She was stunning and radiant and so full of life! Brittany’s joy is contagious and she’s one of those people that you feel happier after you leave her presence and I love that about her! Not only does Brittany have a radiant personality but she’s incredibly photogenic!! Photographer’s dream!! I absolutely loved my time with her back in the spring and it’s been hard to keep these a secret!

A Rock Creek DC Engagement

  • Cliff + Laurie | Engaged

met on the Metro. She was reading a business book that he recognized and so Cliff started a conversation that day with the woman he was destined to spend the rest of his life with! Cliff and Laurie live outside of the heart of DC in an area called Mount Pleasant. That name couldn’t be more accurate. After driving through the craziness of the city, it was so refreshing to come to this quaint neighborhood full of adorable row houses and a large park. Cliff and Laurie met me at the park near their home last Wednesday and we got to know one another as I shot their engagement session.
