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!!

A Country Senior Shoot

  • Meet Crossley

even believe that I’m writing this right now. I can’t believe this beautiful girl is a SENIOR!! Starting tomorrow, Crossley is starting the LAST year of her high school career and I couldn’t be more excited for her! When Michael and I first moved to Richmond, Crossley was one of the youngest girls in the youth group. She was so full of life and energy and I was immediately drawn to her! I’ve been drawn to her every since. She’s just one of those girls that brings joy to your life whenever you’re around her! I have loved getting to know this amazing girl over the years. She loves so deeply and cares about people so much.

Bloopers and Mini Highlight Reel

  • Alaska | Part 3

thing about vacation is that I take A LOT of pictures… a lot. And whenever there are a lot of pictures being taken, there are always some bloopers! I don’t know about you but I always love a few great bloopers!! The annoying thing is that a lot of the out-takes are of ME! There is good reason why I’m on the over side of the camera most of the time!! Today’s post is very humbling… and hilarious at the same time! As funny as the bloopers are, the true treasure of this post is at the very bottom! I attempted to throw together a few clips of our trip!
