A Church Hill Engagement | Richmond VA Wedding Photographer

  • Kevin + Erika | Proposal

emailed me with a strange request. I’m used to boyfriends, fiance’s and husbands purchasing coaching sessions for their significant others but this one was different. Kevin emailed and asked if I would consider adding one more coaching date to my calendar for his girlfriend Erika. This month was a super busy one for us and so my initial reaction was “Well maybe we could make this work later in the summer!”…. and then I read the rest of his email. He explained that Erika was a big fan and she has been pursuing photography for a while now. She loved the blog and my business and it would be a dream come true to have a coaching session with me.

Annapolis Engagement Shoot | Maryland Wedding Photographer

  • Huey + Natalie | Engaged

a lot of blogs…. it’s true. Not as many as I used to… but the list is still long! Bayside Bride is one of those blogs. I just loved how classy it was and I also loved that it was started by to friends that loved weddings and were based on the east coast! One of those gals is Natalie Franke… and not only does she have a part in running this amazing blog, she’s also an incredible photographer in the Annapolis area! When I saw she was engaged I remember randomly telling Michael “Awww… I want to shoot her wedding! She seems so sweet!”. I said that not having a clue if Natalie even knew who I WAS!

Naval Academy Engagement Shoot | Annapolis, MD

  • Andrew + Katie | Engaged

realizing more and more that we are slowly becoming photographers for “Photographers”. I’ll probably do a post about this in the future one day but what I mean by that is we’re realizing that almost ALL of our brides are either professional photographers or own a decent SLR camera and really care about the quality of their images!! It’s a great target audience to have because these brides are ALL ABOUT their pictures!! Photography isn’t just another vendor to check off the list… they realize that these images will eventually tell the story of this exciting season of their life!
