Meet Kelsey

Downtown Richmond Photographer

Let me

first start by explaining that as much as I wish this wasn’t true… I’m still not a portrait photographer. Because of the demands of weddings and engagements, I have stopped shooting portraits… except for my family and close friends.  I wish I could do it ALL but my schedule just won’t let me! (And my husband would actually like to see me every now and then! haha).  I’m still shooting senior portraits for the kids in our youth group because really, they feel like our family. We’ve been in Short Pump well over a year and a 1/2  but I think Michael would agree that it feels like we’ve known these families forever. Kelsey was one of the first high school girls

Coaching Sessions

June - August 2012
COACHING-JUN--AUG

Well today

is an EXCITING day! I get to announcing a little something new AND I get to give away a free set of templates from tuesday’s post!  So, first things first! Drum roll pleaseeeeee!!! The recipient of the FREE T4P Album Templates is…… AMANDA GERLING!! Woohoo!! I’ll be emailing ya girl!  And now on to more exciting news…. I have been pondering this idea for a WHILE… like MONTHS… maybe even a year!  I wish that I could host workshops every month and connect with all of the awesome photographers than email me with questions but that’s just impossible. Workshops are only offered twice a year during my off season and that’s how

Wedding

Season has officially begun! And what better way to start than with TJ and Meredith!!! You may remember their fall engagement session at JMU… there was a TON of Purple and Yellow going on… and their wedding wasn’t any different! These two JMU Alum celebrated what I like to call the “JMU Wedding” last saturday!! Purple and Yellow filled the bouquets and JMU apparel kept showing up everywhere! From the guestbook to the garter, I think it’s safe to say that TJ and Meredith LOVE their school!! It feels like we were JUST walking about campus talking about this day. Meredith emailed me over a year before their wedding date and we set up a meeting time… with the WHOLE family! I loved meeting her parents

Engagements | So What's the Big Deal?!

It’s crazy

to think about, but only 5-7 years ago, engagement portraits were NOT what you see today!  If you’re working in the wedding industry or are a bride just getting started with your planning, I think it’s important to realize just HOW MUCH this industry has evolved in the last several years. It’s really transforming into something TOTALLY different than what it used to be! I’ve heard several people that aren’t associated with the industry say things like “What are ENGAGEMENT portraits? I’ve never even heard of that!!!”.  Well when I hear that, I think “WHAT?! Engagements?! It’s like a right of passage for the wedding day!

Giveaway

A few days

ago I received an email from UPS saying that a package had been delivered. I don’t know about you but whenever I know a package is waiting at home… I get anxious! It’s not even like this was a surprise! I knew exactly what this package was! It was from Leather Craftsmen!! These packages are always fun because there is nothing quite like seeing you finished work in album form! Albums are like the finishing touch that wrap up all of my hard work and so I LOVE when they come in! This round was Colleen and John’s wedding album and Hunter and Becca’s engagement album! They turned out wonderfully!!! So since I’m in the “album mood”, I thought it may be nice
