community crumbles

Keep Community from Crumbling

  • An Old Idea with a Fresh Vision

When I first started writing this post… it felt weird… because I want to make sure I explain this in a way that is well received and understood. After almost 8 years in the photography industry, I have seen WAVES of trends and ideas that have surfaced and then faded and then resurfaced again. Some trends have been more technical and some trends have been more relational. Some trends are here to stay and some trends are probably on their way out. However, there has been one thing about our community that has recently resurfaced that I hope is here to stay….. community.

Ray + Caitlin | Engaged

  • A Historic Church Hill Engagement Session

After meeting these two, it’s official. We not only have the most beautiful couples, we also have the most thoughtful ones as well! Ray and Caitlin voluntarily drove down from northern Virginia for their downtown engagement session. They don’t live in Richmond and they didn’t go to school in Richmond… they just wanted a gorgeous location and they knew it was easier for me. Sweethearts! It was so wonderful to shoot in our hometown last week and not travel to DC since we had a double header wedding weekend coming up.
