If you find yourself in Richmond, you’ll notice it has a subtle artistic flare. I’ve heard about and seen photos of these murals, but I’ve never explored far enough to actually find them. When Holly and Ted emailed me to photograph their engagement session, they asked if we could shoot there. YES! Finally! We decided […]

While shooting a wedding, I arrived at the groom’s house to find the florist’s assistant and the planner’s assistant getting frustrated. They had 7 boutonnieres, 14 pins, and neither of them knew how to pin one. I wear many, many hats on a wedding day and one answers the question, “So, does anyone know how […]

Just a few months ago, I was fanning out because I saw Chris Harrison in Richmond.

Living only a few miles away, Caitlin and Ryan got ready at the new Sagamore Pendry – right on the […]

After photographing Jordan and Sam’s wedding back in 2012, having them become some of our best friends, and now watching Jordan become a mom, I’m just so overjoyed to share this session. Now, you’ll have to pardon my extreme delay in this post. Baby B is now a one year old, and that has me […]

Annamarie and Ryan just welcomed their sweet boy into their home! Just like other rooms in their house, Anna spent months collecting each little piece to make this room a neutral lover’s dream. This room originated as her office, but it had also doubled as storage. These two worked tirelessly before baby to get their room […]

Maui is by far our favorite place on the planet. For Chad’s 30th birthday, we invited some of his closest friends and their wives to to come with us HAWAII! We spent all of our time exploring. Hiking, finding waterfalls, snorkeling, surfing, swimming, whale watching… In the end, we left approximately 34 minutes for our Maui couples portrait session. Whoops! […]
