• Chris + Sarah | Engaged

was a summer intern for our church’s youth group our second summer here in Richmond. We saw each other at youth group and other church events and I just loved Sarah. She has the sweetest personality and is so easy to talk to. We started meeting up for coffee every now and then and the more I got to know her, the more I loved her heart. She’s so passionate about her friends and her faith and I have loved seeing her grow over the past few years! One of my favorite sarah-dates was when we went to Jason’s Deli and she told me about Chris.

I knew they were dating but I hadn’t had a chance to really talk to Sarah about it until we were sitting over salads and sandwiches. The more she told me, the more she smiled and I could tell that this guy made her happier than I had ever seen her before. After our deli date, a few months passed and then I got the “I’m Engaged!!!!!” text and we were so SO happy for them!! Not only were we happy for them but I was secretly hoping that we could be a part of the process because I knew that I would just love photographing these two!! :) We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of their big day!! Chris and Sarah you two make quite an awesome pair! Thank you for freezing a little bit and dodging the rain! I think it’s safe to say that it was worth it!! I absolutely loved our time together last week!!! :) Enjoy some of my favorites!!!


It’s like these rocks were made for this! 

Ha! Love this!

    Fantastic as always! How do you achieve perfect skin tones every time. My images are always cool in temperature. Yours look exactly as they should be. I am so disheartened lol!
