We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

Pinterest Management

  • Wedding Wednesday

the only one that feels like this.  Maybe EVERYONE else in the world is actually DOING something with their Pinterest account. Or maybe the worldwide phenomenon that is called “Pinterest” is GREAT for inspiration but after a while… it just becomes sad. It’s sad because I’ve never made a recipe, I’ve never sewed those DIY pillows and I haven’t even attempted to organize my kitchen “In 3 simple steps”.  I get on Pinterest and I immediately feel a RUSH of excitement!! So many pretty things ALL at one time… and all in one place! … It’s a girls DREAM! ….

An Obici House Wedding | Suffolk, VA

  • Coleman + Leslie

They met when they were young… they even dated when they were young….and then after they went their separate ways, somehow they ended up at the same school and back in each other’s lives. It wasn’t long before they were official again. This time it was for real. I remember Leslie telling me that they were dating and I knew this was different. There was such a certainty about this relationship and everyone felt the same thing.  Maybe that’s because they look like Ken and Barbie… beautiful blue-eyed blondes…or maybe it’s much deeper than how cute they look together… maybe there is a certainty and confidence in their relationship because the foundation of their love is based on something greater than themselves.

 

September 2011

  • The Snapshot

again. A new month.  August didn’t fly by quite as fast as the other months this summer and I’m thankful.  I think that’s because I had a weekend off… YESSS! We still had things to do and weren’t in town but it was a weekend away with Michael and no wedding! The Lord knows what He’s doing when he gives you a weekend of NOTHING. I know a lot of photographers (including myself) have seasons of doubt when it comes to booking for next year.  We quickly become worried about those empty weekends… and I remember at one point last year thinking “Why is my AUGUST SO EMPTY?!!”.
