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!

A Colorful Fall Wedding | Selinsgrove, PA

  • Taylor + Amanda

This past weekend Michael and I drove up to Selinsgrove, PA for Taylor and Amanda’s wedding! Last time we saw them, we were almost run over by wild horses on Assateague island during their engagement shoot!! We had so much fun with them this summer that we had high expectations for their wedding! We knew it was going to be a blast and we weren’t disappointed! Michael and I pulled through the adorable little town and quickly arrived at the Stone Barn. What a cute venue!! This property is full of awesome old barns and it’s settled beside a creak. The ceremony was tucked under the trees beside the water and it was such a peaceful location for a wedding! The portrait locations were limitless! I was in heaven!! Old barns, tall grass, beautiful trees, ivy covered walls…. I could go on and on!
