Richmond Virginia Wedding Photographer

  • Alex + Nikki | Engaged

stole the show for the beginning of Alex and Nikki’s downtown Richmond engagement session. (I’m getting kinda used to these sessions in the fan! They’re fun!) Charlie is Alex’s GORGEOUS Golden Retriever and little Roxie is Nikki’s Lopsa poo.  Cutest little family ever! I loved my time with them, all four of them! After we left the furry ones at home  and continued the session… I almost called Alex “Charlie” on several occasions.  ha! Alex and Nikki are two of the sweetest, most down to earth people I have had the opportunity to work with.  Walking around with those two and hearing their story and more about their wedding made me so thankful for my job!

Girl's Sleepover at our House!

  • My Wedding-less Weekend

TOTALLY covered the ENTIRE floor of our house this past Friday night.

I don’t know how 4 girls slept on one couch but they made it happen!  Michael is the Upper school youth pastor at Gayton Baptist Church (pssst. if you are in the Richmond area and need a church home, check it out!).  The thing about being married to someone in the ministry is that

Honeymoon

  • Venice, Italy | Part II

everything we thought it would be. Little men in striped shirts asking us to pay $100 Euros for a Gondola ride (no way!), quaint cafes and shops lining all of the rustic, waterlined streets, and beautiful buildings with colorful paint chipping off the windows and door frames. I loved Venice. It was one of my favorite places to take pictures. Everywhere I turned I saw door knobs and old shutters that I couldn’t help but snap a few shots off. I remember going to London and Paris in high school and being overwhelmed by all of the awesome architecture…. only I had a HORRIBLE point and shoot camera at the time. This trip was a little different.
