  • Coaching Sessions

is an EXCITING day! I get to announcing a little something new AND I get to give away a free set of templates from tuesday’s post!  So, first things first! Drum roll pleaseeeeee!!!

I have been pondering this idea for a WHILE… like MONTHS… maybe even a year!  I wish that I could host workshops every month and connect with all of the awesome photographers than email me with questions but that’s just impossible.

The JMU Wedding | Virginia Crossings

  • TJ + Meredith

Wedding Season has officially begun! And what better way to start than with TJ and Meredith!!!

From the guestbook to the garter, I think it’s safe to say that TJ and Meredith LOVE their school!! It feels like we were JUST walking about campus talking about this day. Meredith emailed me over a year before their wedding date and we set up a meeting time… with the WHOLE family! I loved meeting her parents

It’s really transforming into something TOTALLY different than what it used to be! I’ve heard several people that aren’t associated with the industry say things like “What are ENGAGEMENT portraits? I’ve never even heard of that!!!”.  Well when I hear that, I think “WHAT?! Engagements?! It’s like a right of passage for the wedding day!
