Tuckahoe Plantation Wedding Photographer

  • Evan + Patricia | Engaged

this week at the beautiful Tuckahoe Plantation for their engagement pictures. I knew they were excited because I’ve been emailing with Patricia for what seems like forever!! :) However, I didn’t know until our session that she had a COUNTDOWN going for their eshoot!! So cute! I just love these two! Evan and Patricia met at their church and are finishing up at Virginia Tech. I totally remember those days. It’s tough to plan a wedding AND graduate AND figure out where you’re going to live AND find jobs. Whew! It seems like just yesterday Michael and I were in the same situation.

A Mill at Fine Creek Wedding | Powhatan, VA

  • Josh + Katie

They have been separated for a long time. Because of Josh’s job in the military, distance has become something that Katie is very familiar with. Josh has literally been a world away from her during different points of their relationship. I can’t even imagine how hard that must be. Because Josh is currently stationed in WA state, we weren’t able to do an engagement session…and you know I LOVE engagement sessions. They really help couples get to know me and get a feel for what it’s like in front of the camera! Well, Josh and Katie obviously didn’t need that practice session because they were PROS in front of the camera. I would be explaining a pose and then look up and they were already doing what I wanted them to do. AMAZING! Not only was their portrait time amazing.. their whole DAY was amazing! I just LOVE shooting at the The Mill at Fine Creek. It’s probably one of my FAVORITE venues in Virginia!! And that’s saying something because VA has some incredible venues!

  • Brendan + Jenna | Engaged

Brendan before I knew Jenna. Brendan was the sweet guy next door that was always looking out for us girls. Like every year at college, the new freshman arrived and new faces began to pop up here and there. Jenna was one of those new faces. I met her and I loved her immediately. Throughout the following year, Jenna’s best friend Rachel started talking to Garrett and so naturally, Jenna started hanging out at the guys house too! I remember seeing her and Brendan sitting together one day in the living room and the thought crossed my mind “Oh now THAT would be cute! They’re both GINGERS!!!”.
