Styled Shoot | September 2013 Workshop Experience

  • Rose Gold Inspiration

were building our house, we were really picky about our garage doors. This wasn’t because I was a crazy, first time home builder, it was because those garage doors were going to act as a workshop backdrop. Ha! You should have seen the look on our construction managers face when I said “We need the european style doors for photo shoots”. I’m sure that was a first!! Luckily we got the barn-like, european doors and they work perfectly as a clean backdrop for our styled shoot! Our neighbors probably think we’re crazy but that’s ok!!

A Seaford Engagement Session

  • Trey + Lindsey | Engaged

drove down the Seaford, VA to meet Trey and Lindsey, there were Christmas ads on the radio and everyone was talking about how Thanksgiving was only a week away and I suddenly realized just how FAST this wedding season has flown by!! It’s just gone!! I feel like it was only a week or so ago that I was saying “We’re halfway there!”. Now we’re getting into the slow season and it’s already wonderful! We have a few weekends off from shooting weddings and we are shooting some engagements in between!
