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!!

A Fall, Maymont Park Engagement

  • Jason + Mary | Engaged

hard to believe that Michael and I moved to Richmond over three years ago! I remember growing up and hearing about Maymont, Belle Isle and Carytown but never visiting RVA at all! I mean, we went to the museums and IMAX theater as kids, but I didn’t REALLY see all that Richmond had to offer until the last three years. It’s such a beautiful city and the longer we’re here, the more I love it! The heart of Richmond is home for Jason and Mary! They live really close to Maymont Park and so it made perfect sense for us to shoot there! It was SO beautiful so that park was packed! It looked like fall but felt like mid September!
