Educational Small Business Social Media Event Virginia_0270

Come Together | Registration Opens at 12EST!

  • Join us on June 11th in Fredericksburg, VA!

Today is the day! Registration for our Come Together event that we’re putting on with our dear friends Amy and Jordan Demos will open today at 12 EST! It’s hard to believe that this is actually happening… why you ask? Well, you see… sometimes when we’re with friends… especially friends that run their own businesses, we have conversations together about what’s next and then we start dreaming up big ideas! MOST of the time, these big ideas are just that… they are IDEAS. Most of these IDEAS never turn into ACTIONS but if we’re lucky…. every now and then… one of them becomes a reality!

AGING NEWLYWEDS

I Wish Every Couple Could Do This!

  • Grab a Kleenex!

Welp, I was fully prepared to NOT blog today. We’re shooting a wedding today and so I was going to give myself the day off…. and then I woke up this morning and Michael handed me his phone to watch a video. Sometimes he does this and the videos are funny…but I end up wishing I had just 5 more minutes of sleep. :) This video on the other hand… well, I’ll just let you watch it and see for yourself. It’s priceless. Today we’re shooting a wedding for a couple who has been through so much already and they haven’t even begun their journey into marriage yet. This video is such a beautiful reminder of what marriage is supposed to look like. :)

Andrew + Caitlin | Engaged

  • A Jefferson Park Engagement Shoot

There are a few things happening in my life that make me feel old. I know, I know…. 27 isn’t OLD…. but I’m getting closer and closer to the big 3-0 and it’s kinda freaking me out a little bit!! I don’t realize how fast time is flying by until I do things like photograph my college roommate’s little sister’s weddings… x3! I remember when these girls were in high school and now they’re getting married!! When I was in college, I remember traveling up to PA to stay with Steph’s family for the weekend and Caitlin was still in high school. We kind of knew each other back then but it wasn’t until Caitlin graduated and came down to CNU that I really felt like we got to KNOW her and it turns out, she’s just as awesome as her sister. :)
