Registration For February 8th, 2013

  • The Workshop Experience

The next workshop date is being announced EARLY this year! Aren’t you proud of me? I’m trying to give everyone a nice heads up since it will be coming up at the beginning of February 2013! The next Workshop Experience will take place in Richmond, VA on February 8th from 9am-6pm. The cost is $750 per person and when I am asked “So what is the workshop about?”…. My best response is this… The Workshop Experience in a nutshell is me teaching 12-16 photographers as much as I possibly can in a matter of  9 hours. The goal of the workshop is for the attendees to learn what took me 4 YEARS to learn in one day!

A Downtown Richmond Engagement

  • Steven + Julie | Engaged

I shoot in the city, the more I come to LOVE RVA. For those in other states or countries, etc…. “RVA” is a nickname for “Richmond, VA”. Michael and I live on the west end of the city in the suburbs and so it’s FUN to head into the city for portraits every now and then. This shoot was a little different than my normal shoots and here is why…. we started at 8AM! Yikes!! For some, that’s not early at all… but for me, it’s a new concept. Shooting that early has always been intimidating to me. I was worried that I wouldn’t feel “awake” enough to be creative!! Well, I happy to share that that wasn’t the case.

Gayton Baptist Church

  • Jazz Nativity 2012

and I were engaged and trying to figure out where we were supposed to live and what church we were supposed to get involved in, I had one hope….. PLEASE dear Lord let whatever church we find have great music!! That’s a big deal to me. I just wanted to go to a church where contemporary music was played and oh my goodness did He deliver! Gayton’s music on Sunday morning is wonderful… but when I went to my first Jazz Nativity practice back in 2010… I was BLOWN AWAY. I immediately called my parents and insisted that they needed to get their tickets NOW.  Well, they purchased tickets…
