Ten Things

Bokeh Style
bokeh-10-things

You already

know A LOT about Michael and I…. probably more than you care to! I share alot on this blog and that’s because this is a business blog AND a way to document our lives since I have no time to pursue a hobby in scrapbooking! Ps. Little sidenote, I legimitately thought I was going to be a professional scrapbooker in high school. I even read books about it! No joke… Yikes! Nerd alert!!!  So since you already know more than you need to about Michael and I… I thought it was appropriate to blog “10 Ten Things you may not know about Bokeh”.  If you’re new to the blog, Bokeh is our 9 month old Bichpoo puppy and we’re a little obsessed with him….

Downtown Richmond Engagement Shoot

Gosh, I don’t

even know where to begin with these two! Let’s start with Melissa… or Moe. Our friendship started on the floor of my freshman dorm at our very first Hall Meeting in York River East.  This bubbly girl sat beside me and said “is that a promise ring?! I have one of those!!!” and we’ve been friends ever since. Melissa and I stayed friends through our college years and even though we didn’t hangout all the time, it was NEVER awkward to be together. I just loved this girl! She was fun and spunky and genuinely just a sweet person to have in my life! Fast forward to senior year. I’ve known Joe from a distance but know we’re both on V-Team for Intervarsity…

Wedding Wednesday

The "Untouched" Shots

Welp! Here’s

another wedding wednesday with some advice about WHY shooting the reception UNTOUCHED is REALLY important from a photography standpoint. Now, before you read on, let me explain what I mean by “Untouched”.  When I say “I need to shoot the reception Untouched”, I mean I want to shoot a wide shot of the entire room before aunt Louise claims her seat extra early and throws her shawl down on the chair and her clutch on her place setting. How did Aunt Louise squeeze in to grab her seat before the doors even opened?  I have no clue, but they always find a way! The hilarious thing is that guests try to claim their seat for the

Adam + Lauren

A Delaware Wedding | The Chase Center

The part of

the service came when it was time to share their vows. He took her hands and before he could make out the first line of his promises to her, the tears came flooding in. Big time. It was the sweetest thing. In that one moment, the whole room knew without a doubt just how much love Adam has for Lauren, his new bride.  They exchanged rings and Lauren smiled the biggest smile when she placed that ring on his left hand. I remember seeing a ring on Michael’s ring finger for the first time. That one little aspect of the day makes it all seem SO REAL!! They shared a kiss and and exited the sanctuary,  only to turn around and greet every row of guests! Talk about a lot of hugs and kisses!!

Sisters

A Post for Emy

I’ve been

blessed with great friends in my life…. GREAT friends. Friends that I know I will be close with for a LIFETIME. I’m so thankful for the girls that I grew up with and then the girls that I spent my college year with . They seem like family to me and I adore them. However, as close as I am to those girls, there is one friend that sits one notch above them all and that’s Emy… my little sister. Sure, we went through those high school years where we hated each other and were embarrassed to be seen together but that phase was short lived for us. As we grew up we quickly became friends….. REAL friends.  Ya know, like that type of friends that you
