Seth + Emily

  • Richmond Virginia | Fine Creek Mill Wedding Photographer

That’s the nickname that kept floating through the air on her wedding day. Em has dreamed about this day for so long.  Marrying the man of her dreams, being surrounded by her best friends and celebrating with her sweet family.  I remember late nights, sitting with Em on my bedroom floor in the Middle House, just talking about weddings, relationships, the future… everything that we were so uncertain about.  Seth and Em started dating at the same time that Michael left to go to North Carolina.  We were both experiencing long-distance relationships and the struggle that that brings. Some days we would laugh at how hard it was, some days we would sit on each others beds and cry…..

Wedding Wednesday

  • Buying in Bulk

Can’t I be honest?  Today is a boring day.  I feel like my creativity has disappeared AND it’s been raining ALL day long. It’s just a dreary day! However, sometimes dreary days are necessary. Not everyday can be cute and fun and creative. There are boring things that just have to be done…like filing paperwork, updating client accounts, entering payments and returning emails.  There is always a boring side to every job and today, I’m feeling my boring side.  It is on days like today that I realize that I wouldn’t survive at a desk job.  I would shrivel up and die, I’m convinced. When I’m not involved in something that is creative I get tired, bored and cranky.

I'm Excited!

  • 10.10.10 is coming fast!

Soooooo excited! 10.10.10 is almost here and even though I am still overwhelmed with all that needs to be done, I’m excited.  This past weekend I was a bridesmaid in another one of my college roommate’s wedding.  Emily Rice is now Emily Baxter and she made the most beautiful bride!!! The strangest part of their wedding day was hearing people tell me… “It’s your turn next!!”… AH! Wow. I’m next! I’m the next one to be married and that’s CRAZY!!! Having a long engagement sometimes makes the wedding seem like a far off fairy tell that never seems to get any closer. Well, it’s closer!!! It’s less than two months away!
