  • A Church Hill Engagement Shoot

blogging calendar, I’m a little thrown off this week.  I took Monday off, which would seem normal to most people since I work on Saturdays…but I still have the same type of Monday mornings like everyone else. The emails are piled up and the work is just staring at you from your computer screen. However, despite this fact, I took Monday off and I also didn’t really blog on Monday! So, this post is a few days late and I have to apologize because I have kept you from one beautiful shoot!! I’ve shot in Libby Park at Church Hill before… as most Richmond photographers have…

Michael + Laura

  • A DIY Country Inspired Wedding | Adam's International School

She was making her way up the coast and I was worried. She was gaining strength and I thought “Oh dear, if I’m shooting a wedding in the midst of Sandy’s wrath, I’m done for!”. However, Sandy took a different route on Saturday and we were grateful!! The overcast skies were a constant reminder that it could have been raining with strong winds but it wasn’t. It was just an overcast October day. The leaves were still on the trees and it was the perfect day for a wedding!! Michael and Laura were married at the Adam’s International School in Goochland, VA. This is a newer wedding venue and it’s perfect for the DIY bride! …. and even MORE perfect for the DIY COUNTRY bride!

A "Hurrication"

  • Sandy is a comin!

new word I made up. Tomorrow I’m taking a “Hurrication”…. basically, it’s a day off because of hurricane Sandy. She’s heading up the coast and she’s making her way onto the coast! As I type, I hear acorns hitting the roof and the branches are a swayin!! We’re headed up to my parent’s house since we don’t have a generator. And lets be honest, we don’t want to miss out on a hurricane party!! My sister is in town, Michael’s not working tomorrow and schools are cancelled across the state…. so I’m taking a break too!! Ps. I wouldn’t get much done without power anyway!! So to all of my northern east coast friends, stay SAFE!!
