A Waterfront Maryland Wedding

  • Kevin + Anna Grace

This day has been SO anticipated for quite a long time!! The beautiful bed and breakfast overlooking the water was FULL of bridesmaids and excitement when I arrived!! I hugged AG and immediately saw familiar faces around the room. I knew it was going to be an amazing day and I was right!! Anna Grace is a photographer and graphic designer and so she MADE time for her pictures! It’s just incredible all that we accomplished before the sunset and Kevin is such a trooper!! I told AG just how lucky she was to have a guy that’s willing to take pictures on docks, in fields, sit in the grass, walk to the beach and pull off on the side of the road for portraits with a teal wall! Kevin just smiled and nuzzle her perfectly. They have SO many beautiful portraits! It was such a wonderful day! As Anna Grace walked down the aisle, tears were streaming down her face.

A University of Richmond Shoot

  • Meet Julia

each senior shoot that I do, I feel older and older!! When Julia first came into my life she was in her freshman year and I remember thinking to myself “Wow, when that class graduates, then I’ll feel old!!”… Welp! It’s true. I feel like time is going by faster than ever!! I always wonder if the seniors feel like time is passing quickly or if it’s just me!! I think whenever you’re busy, time seems to pass more quickly. So because of sport schedules, hard classes and college apps that are due, I’m sure this year is flying by for Julia!!

A Brandermill Wedding | Richmond, VA

  • JR + Sarah

As I was creating this blog post… this very LATE blog post (I’m running a little behind today:)…. I realized just how many friend’s weddings we have been a part of over the last few years. As I scrolled through the bridal party pictures and the reception shots, I saw couple after couple that we have celebrated alongside of on their wedding days. It’s such an honor. Being with JR and Sarah all day was so much fun and let me say this, memories were made!! We were ahead of schedule and so instead of driving the bride and groom to their ceremony location, we made a little pit stop… to Chickfila! I mean that’s what everyone does on their wedding day right?! We stopped to get some nuggets and a milkshake for JR….and I can honestly say that it was a first for us! Only with friends will we do something crazy like that!!
