We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

… and there is SO MUCH going on this month! Whew! Michael is gone on mission trips, there are 5 weddings this month and 3 will be out of state! Very busy. I’m still learning to be still and relax. It’s hard to do when you have a job and a wedding to plan! … But I’m improving. I’m reminded to take a step back and just be calm and stress free when I see these Jamaican Beach shots! While going through the images from last weekend’s destination wedding, I saw this shot and I just HAD to show you so that you can get excited about Jennifer and Jason’s wedding! Coming soon! Now I’m off to OBX for Michael and Amanda’s big day!

  • Nathan + Andie | Part II

As soon as Andie pulled these shoes out of the car, I was sold. I’m really not a “shoe” kind of girl.  It takes a lot for me to invest in a wild pair of heels but I LOVE these!  It’s amazing to me what this girl can find on Esty.com! Her hairpieces and jewelry matched perfectly.  Accessories are awesome!! and did I mention they had HUGE orange balloons too?! I loved every minute of this session! Photographing couples that are already married is really special for me. I don’t get to do it very often but when I do, I love it! These two have been married for 3 years and have a beautiful little girl! Enjoy Nathan and Andie’s BRIGHT and FUN session that I shot in Downtown Richmond a few weeks ago!

  • TJ + Steph

and she wanted nothing to do with him.  She wasn’t interested. But TJ pursued her for months until she gave finally gave him a chance and look where they are now! I love Steph and TJ’s story.  They dated all throughout college and became best friends. He proposed, she said yes and now they are husband and wife and so happy! Their day was spent with family and friends who just adored them.  I mean, how can you not love these two?  Have you seen them?! Between TJ’s sense of humor and Steph’s laugh, there is no chance you won’t fall in love with this couple. Everyone at their wedding was ready to celebrate along side of them! Ever since meeting them at their engagement session, I have…
