A Classic Richmond Engagement Shoot

  • David + Alyson | Engaged

emailed me with exclamation marks and an undeniable excitement that I could feel through the words she typed! Alyson contacted me right after David popped the question and her joy was contagious! Not only had she just gotten engaged, she had the most PERFECT proposal in Colorado while visiting David’s family. They had an incredible week biking, hiking, alpine sliding, etc and just when Alyson thought that it couldn’t get any better, David asked her to watch the sunrise with him. Despite the early wake up call, she met him for the sunrise and then they traveled to a nearby park only to find a few men setting up a hot air balloon!!

A Dominion Club Wedding | Richmond Wedding Photographer

  • Hector + Kathryn

This is a wedding that we have been looking forward to for YEARS… literally!! When we were in school at CNU, I remember Kathryn and Hector starting to talk and then date. It was exciting!! They have always been one of those couples that everyone is cheering on!! I think that’s because everyone can tell that these two were made for one another! They are both driven, passionate, loyal, hard working, brilliant and incredibly genuine! After 6 years of dating, Hector and Kathryn finally tied the knot this past Sunday!! It was QUITE a celebration!! We always knew that the first Fitzgerald wedding was going to be amazing… not because of the gorgeous venue or beautiful decor, but because they are just an awesome family! You can’t find another family as enthusiastic as theirs!! Their excitement and joy for this wedding was so evident!!
