2014 4th of July

  • Bokeh's First Camping Trip

been told that we’re obsessed with our dog… and I would have to agree that those accusations are true. We love him. He bring so much JOY into our lives everyday and he’s really more than anything we ever hoped for in a puppy!! Smart, obedient, non-shedding, adorable and photogenic. :) He is all of those things! His modeling skills can actually come across as being a little creepy because he has a very “human-like” smile when he’s happy! Speaking of being happy, Bokeh boy was THRILLED when brought him with us on our 4th of July camping trip!!

Our Love for Jimmy Fallon

  • Good Things

You may wonder what the point is for our “Good Things” category on the blog. Does this really have ANYTHING to do with photography? Or business? No, not really. But I actually think that if I thought about it long enough, I could make a parallel between Jimmy Fallon’s strong following and our approach to creating community with our brand! ha! But I’ll save that for another day. :) Our random “Good Things” posts are just little posts where I share about things we love. Right now, one of the things we’re loving is Jimmy Fallon.

A Sweet DIY Richmond Wedding

  • Steven + Jennifer

Backyard weddings are unlike any type of wedding. There is something so relaxed and welcoming about them. I knew as soon as I read Jen’s first email about what they were envisioning for their big day that this wedding was going to be a ton of fun! Steven and Jen wanted to get married at home… where they hang out with friends and family… where they feel most like themselves and where they want to spend the rest of their life. It seemed only fitting that they would start their new life together in a place that they hold so dear to their hearts. The only thing that was missing were the pups!! We missed their fur babies but with all of the hard work that a DIY wedding entails, it was probably smart to leave the puppies with the sitters. These two worked so hard pulling this day together. They did everything themselves and since our own wedding was in my parent’s backyard, I know the feeling!
