Tredegar Engagement Shoot | Downtown Richmond

  • TJ + Sara | Engaged

so many photogenic nooks and crannies! I’ve shot at the Tredegar so many times but every time is still so different!! I’m LOVING the light TJ, Sara and I found during their shoot last week!

(That stuff is good!).  Gratefully, I’m starting to feel better!
