Bridal Shoot at Tuckahoe Plantation

  • Blythe's Bridals

this before and I’ll say it again, bridals are a lot of fun!! No stress, no time limit…. it’s just me, my brides and their closest friend or family.  Blythe brought her mom and sister along for her shoot and I’m always so thankful to have another set of hands!

A Winter Anniversary Shoot | Richmond, VA

  • Ted + Heather | Married

days happen in a flash! You always hear that but you never understand it until it’s your own wedding day! All of a sudden, you’re being introduced at your own reception and you’re thinking “Wait! It’s almost over?!”. Our wedding was a blur…. a beautiful blur! And our wedding pictures help us remember how amazing that day was. However, even though we have fabulous images… what bride wouldn’t want to get dolled up again and spend an hour or so taking a few extra wedding portraits with her new husband?! Michael, I know it’s been two years but this would be FUN!! :) Ted and Heather just shared their one year anniversary in December
