Trevor + Kari | Married

  • Farm Inspired Anniversary Photos | Rome, Georgia

I met her at a coaching session. Her sweet smile and kind demeanor made me fall in love with her instantly! Kari had JUST gotten engaged before heading to Virginia for her coaching day and to say she was excited would be an understatement!! She talked about how amazing Trevor was and how thankful she was to have found the love of her life and I secretly hoped I could meet him one day. Well, my wish can true and we had the opportunity to spend a solid 4 days together in Rome, Georgia during the Connect Retreat!

Meet Sarah

  • A Spring Time Senior Shoot

Spring is HERE! And so is the pollen! We have a nice layer of “green” on everything around here! Thankfully, we took Sarah’s senior portraits last week before the rush of pollen swept through the area. We took her portraits on the most perfect afternoon in Maymont. We walked around together and just when we thought we were about done, we found the TULIPS! They are gorgeous!! Sarah looked so beautiful and grown up! Seriously, where have the last 4 years gone? We’ve been in Richmond for over 4 and a half years and so that means we met Sarah right as she was finishing up her years in middle school!

April 2014 Workshop | Styled Shoot

  • A Watercolor Inspired Wedding Shoot

It’s true that it takes a small army to produce a great styled shoot. I couldn’t do this on my own. I’ve actually tried in the past and it was extremely stressful!! I’m beyond thankful for Amanda Veronee and her willingness to style and serve!! This shoot is hands down one of my FAVORITE workshop styled shoots to date!!! I mean, you’ll see what I’m talking about as soon as you scroll! Everything was just stunning and bright and fresh and FRUITY! :) It was so much fun to photograph!
