A Downtown Richmond Senior Shoot

  • Meet Hadley

is one characteristic that I wish every high schooler had, it would be motivation and the ability to dream BIG…. ok those are two things. I think it’s sad when I meet students that are completely satisfied with the status quo and have no real ambitions for the future. Hadley could not be further from that type of high school student.

It was her wedding day!! Tears of joy are the best! Michael and I absolutely loved spending the day with these two and their amazing friends and families. I don’t think downtown Baltimore has ever looked SO beautiful!! But of course I’m biased :) Mike and Kelly had an amazing wedding day. As Mike stood in front of 200 of his closest family and friends at the reception,
