A Country Senior Shoot

  • Meet Abby

several people in my life that are always so much fun to be around! They are the type of people that make boring things entertaining, the people who can make sad moments less sad and the people who make exciting things 10X more exciting!!!!! Abby is one of those people. Her smile, her laugh and her sense of humor makes her so much fun to hangout with! Her whole family is that way! We love the Jones’!! We love them so much that we decided to build a house RIGHT next door to them!

Branch House Engagement Shoot | Richmond, VA

  • Ryan + Sarah | Engaged

arrived for their engagement shoot and some of the first few words out of their mouths were “We’ve been waiting for this for SO LONG!”!!! Needless to say, I adored them from the very beginning! Ryan and Sarah are the best couple! Sarah has the SWEETEST smile and cutest laugh! And Ryan looks at Sarah like she’s the only girl in the world… they are a a dream to photograph! Their modeling skills combined with the rich colors and changing leaves in Richmond made for an incredible engagement shoot on Monument Avenue this week!!

A Church Hill Engagement Session | Richmond Wedding Photographer

  • Shaun + Arielle | Engaged

as Shaun and Arielle pulled up, I saw the fluff moving in the back seat. They got out of the car and I gave them a hug…. and then Willow hopped out! She’s the cutest miniature golden doodle you’ll ever meet!! We have a soft place in our hearts for poodle mixes since we’re obsessed with our own! They’re smart, loyal , well behaved and last but not least…. they’re photogenic! :) Willow wasn’t the only one who was photogenic, her parent’s were also!! Shaun and Arielle started their session just trusting that I knew what I was doing when it came to poses and by the end of their shoot, they were posing on their own!
