• Brittany + Matt | Engaged

Brittany is one of those brides that just makes you feel like a million bucks.  Her first email was full of exclamation marks and you could almost feel her energy and excitement through the screen! She is so excited about getting married and I am one lucky girl to be able to capture their big day coming this January! It’s going to be amazing! The craziest part is that I will be MARRIED when I shoot her wedding! Oh. My. Gosh. That is so weird and yet so cool! I’m going to be a wife!! ah!


Between Brit and I, I’m not sure who is more excited about getting married……. but we sure make a good pair! Being engaged and hanging out with my clients who are also engaged is SO MUCH FUN! We ‘re walking through the same phase of life and we understand the stress and excitement that comes with planning and waiting and planning some more! Matt and Brittany’s engagement session was shot at Belle Isle in Richmond. This was my second time shooting at this location and so I wanted it to be totally different than Anna and Justin’s.  It was so easy to capture the fun Matt and Brit have together. Brittany’s laugh is contagious and never ending! It was such a joy to hangout with them last week.  Enjoy their engagement session!


Matt and Britt, I can’t WAIT til January!!! xoxo


There it is! Isn’t she cute?! This is literally our first set of shots… I knew it was going to be a fun hour or so!

One of my favs!

Love her!

the girl got style:)

We had great light!

Oh hello sun!
