We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

Tag: Downtown Engagement Session

Mike + Caroline | Engaged

  • Downtown Alexandria, Virginia Engagement Portraits

You may be thinking “Hm, these two look familiar!”…. and they should! Why? Because I’ve already taken their engagement pictures! Now you may be wondering “Well why do they get TWO engagement sessions?! That’s not normal, right?”. Right. It’s not normal. It’s also not normal for me to forget about DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME! During their first engagement session, right as we were leaving for their second location, the sun started to set. It was already overcast and I wasn’t sure what was going on and then it hit me… I forgot about daylight savings! Ah!!

Main Street Engagement Session, Richmond VA

  • James + Aimee | Engaged

always been really proud of the fact that Michael and I have been together for SO long. I mean, dating for 8 YEARS is impressive, right? I think so. We’ve been together since I was 15 and he was 17. So when I’m walking around with my couples during an engagement shoot and I ask them how long they’ve been together, I almost ALWAYS have them beat by at least 4 years… welp! Not this time! Nope. Aimee and James have broken the record. 12 YEARS! They have been dating for 12 years and they would win every “Long term dating” contest by a landslide!!

A Church Hill Engagement Shoot

  • Noah + Kaylie | Engaged

blogging calendar, I’m a little thrown off this week.  I took Monday off, which would seem normal to most people since I work on Saturdays…but I still have the same type of Monday mornings like everyone else. The emails are piled up and the work is just staring at you from your computer screen. However, despite this fact, I took Monday off and I also didn’t really blog on Monday! So, this post is a few days late and I have to apologize because I have kept you from one beautiful shoot!! I’ve shot in Libby Park at Church Hill before… as most Richmond photographers have…
