Templates for Photographers

  • Giveaway

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

 

Ask Anything

  • Time Savers | Photo Mechanic

ever seen something that looks so old school and un-cool that you just decide to NOT give it a chance at ALL. You know what I mean…. like hole-in-wall restaurants or ghetto-fabulous boutiques? Sometimes the GREATEST things are in the nastiest places! Seriously! The last engagement session I posted was shot in one of the ROUGHEST areas of Richmond… but yet the locations were beautiful! So, as we approach this “Time Saver” post… keep this in mind. Photo Mechanic, in my opinion, doesn’t LOOK legit. I mean really, look at that logo!  When I was first introduced to PM, I thought to myself, I am NOT paying $150 for a program

Garrett + Rachel | Engaged

  • Urban Downtown Richmond Engagement

trying to think about what to write about these two… I couldn’t help but wonder who I’m closer to! Rachel is two years younger than me but as soon as she came to CNU, we became friends and started hanging out on a regular basis!  We literally talked and shared EVERYTHING.  From roommates, to our pasts, to our boyfriends/fiancés, to what our futures were going to look like…. we talked about it all. I love this girl. I love her heart, her sarcasm, her honesty and her boldness. She’s just an amazing girl. Then there’s Garrett. Welp, I don’t really know where to begin.  We were neighbors and served on the IV worship team together
