Richmond Wedding Photographer

  • Emily + John | Engaged

…done a Bridal Show before.  I had heard of them and had considered looking into doing one but had never actually signed up.  I was invited to be a part of the Greater VA Bridal show back in May and a agreed to set up a booth. It was fun displaying canvases and albums but to be honest, bridal shows and advertising are not the way my business works. My blog is my advertisment and my relationships with my clients are how I get future business.  I hated meeting a bride at the show, handing her a postcard and after 10 seconds of talking to her, she would walk away to the next booth. That is just how it goes at a bridal show…

  • Craig + Laura | Engaged

If Laura had to move the wedding up to this weekend, I’m confident she could pull it off. She has basically planned her whole wedding and it’s going to be here until May! I envy her organization.

It’s slowly coming together and we are not as unorganized as I make us out to be. Things are falling into place…

  • Brian + Cathy

…a long list. This list consisted of 100 things he was looking for in a girl. From listening to friends and family during the wedding day, it was easy to figure out that Brian is extremely type A. He’s organized and precise and so when Cathy came among and heard about his list…. she made him tell her about it…. on their 2nd date! Brian told this story at the reception and he ended it by explaining that Cathy met 99 of the 100 on his list and that he was just going to have to get used to the cats. He also thanked her for making him a better man, for loving him and for being everything he could have ever dreamed for in a wife. I LOVE this couple and I loved getting to know them on their wedding day. We didn’t get to do engagements and so…
