From the Bottom of my Heart!

  • Thank You

Thank you! Thank you  so so much! Yes, I’m thanking YOU…. the blog reader. Whoever is reading this, you have been such an integral part of this business. I couldn’t do this without you. Just recently I met with my CPA and we were going over expenses and mileage and all of that stuff that I HATE dealing with…. and after we got to the end of the spreadsheet she said…”Oh, you know what I didn’t see… I didn’t see your expenses for Advertising”.  I responded proudly and said “I don’t pay for advertising!”.

  • Jordan + Katy | Engaged | Part II

something so special about my time with couples during their engagement session. It’s really my first time to ever interact with them and it gives me a preview of what to expect for the wedding day!…. After Katy and Jordan’s session.. I can’t WAIT for the wedding day! June can’t come fast enough!! If you missed their PART ONE…. shame on you! It was so much fun! Don’t worry, you can still view it HERE! The second half of their engagement session was shot downtown and think I fell in love with Richmond all over again! The old streets were lined with vintage doors and bright colors…
