Virginia Beach, Founders Inn Wedding Photographer

  • Josh + Karynne

…this summer’s theme is HOTT. Just plain HOTT! Sunday, as I was driving to the Founder’s Inn, I looked at my thermometer in my car and it hit the triple digits. As I sat on 64, I slouched in my seat and prayed 1. That my car would make it! (I don’t understand how they run in 100+ degree weather sometimes) and 2. That I would survive this outdoor ceremony and that the guests would too! Well, I arrived and was informed that everything had been moved inside because of the intolerable heat wave! woohoo!

Josh and Karynne have one of the most interesting stories! When we met …

10.10.10 Hairpieces and a Little Cape Cod

And I quickly learned to remember to unplug after using! Last week I showed you some fun hairpieces that I have photographed this summer! Now I want to show you ours!

Fredericksburg Wedding Photographer

  • Eddie + Lilian | Engaged

… that’s what my thermometer said inside my car as I pulled up to meet Lilian and Eddie. I was experiencing that tug-of-war feeling… I was so excited to see them and go give them a huge hug but man, I was dreading getting out of the car. It was HOTTTT! Four T’s doesn’t even describe how hott it was! But Eddie and Lilian are hard core. They didn’t quit and we didn’t cut their session short at all! We hit a ton of locations that Lilian had picked out and wow, did we find some neat spots! After half of the session was over, we were walking to the next spot, just talking, and we found a sketchy old garage! JACK POT!
