Urban Downtown Engagement

  • Matt and Callie | Engaged

greatest things about this industry is the relationships that I have been able to form over the last several years. Through workshops, conferences and meetups, I have been able to form friendships with some amazing people who have incredible stories. One of these people would be Callie. Callie took a risk and attended my first ever larger scale workshop back in 2010. The SUGAR SHOOT took place in Richmond and we shot in a candy store! It was definitely different from my workshops now and I’m so thankful for the ladies that came out! Callie was one of those ladies!! When I received her email I was thrilled!

It’s THAT kind of Friday people!!  They tend to happen every other week or so!! Another exciting part of my day was being able to share on Showit Live this afternoon!  If you missed it, it will be posted on the Showit Live site!!

In fact, some of my BEST wedding days have been overcast and so I gladly welcome the clouds! Michael and I drove through the rolling hills of Scottsville (a small area outside of Charlottesville) until we arrived at camp. Trey and Kiersten decided to have their wedding on Trey’s parent’s property that they have converted into an incredible camp that Michael and I have been going to since high school! You can read more about that here!  This incredible family has been a part of our lives for a while and so to be the one that was able to
