  • Featured Friday

from vacation. And when I say “kinda” home, I mean we’re physically in RICHMOND…. but we’re still not working. Today is a stay-cation day. We’re getting “life” stuff done around the house. Ya know, laundry, vacuuming, dishes, hang my NEW SAMPLE CANVAS OF BUD & JILL!! Woopwoop! So excited about that one! After the “life” stuff is accomplished, we’re headed to BUSCH GARDENS with one of our favorite couples! Perfect ending to our vacation!!!  So I will be sure to share vacation images next week! (You knew that was coming!) We had such a great time and not only did we get away,

The Nautical Wedding | Annapolis Wedding Photographer

  • Nate + Tiffany

saw Tiffany on her wedding day I said “Um, how in the WORLD did you get so lucky?!”.  Tiffany and Nate decided to have a friday evening wedding about a year ago. Little did they know that the weekend following their wedding was going to be hurricane central! WOW! As I read tweets from other photographers about all of their Saturday weddings that had already been canceled, I became so thankful that I was working on a Friday. Nate and Tiffany are SO fortunate that they had clear skies and a beautiful day for their  wedding. The sun was out all throughout the evening and then the clouds rolled in as the couple made their grand exit on BOAT!

  • Wedding Wednesday

the quickest Wedding Wednesday post I have EVER posted in all of my blogging years! Yup! That is because I’m writing this post on Sunday night and it’s 1:25 am and I still have so much to do before vacation tomorrow! I’m pre-blogging because I want you all to have some pretties to look at while Michael and I are away at the Greenbrier… yes, the GREENBRIER. We’re so excited for our mini vacation!! So while we’re spending a few days not reading emails and not editing wedding images, enjoy this fun floral DIY shoot that I did with the fabulous Janie Medley a few weeks back! This pink, purple and red centerpiece inspiration was extremely photogenic
