Fort Monroe Wedding Photographer, Hampton VA

  • Brendan + Jenna | Engaged

Brendan before I knew Jenna. Brendan was the sweet guy next door that was always looking out for us girls. Like every year at college, the new freshman arrived and new faces began to pop up here and there. Jenna was one of those new faces. I met her and I loved her immediately. Throughout the following year, Jenna’s best friend Rachel started talking to Garrett and so naturally, Jenna started hanging out at the guys house too! I remember seeing her and Brendan sitting together one day in the living room and the thought crossed my mind “Oh now THAT would be cute! They’re both GINGERS!!!”.

Jefferson Hotel Wedding | Richmond, VA Wedding Photographer

  • Darrell + Meredith

You just met these two a few weeks ago! Darrell and Meredith live in Atlanta but celebrated their wedding day in Meredith’s hometown… Richmond! It was such a classic, elegant richmond wedding! The Jefferson Hotel didn’t disappoint and the weather was perfect! I’m starting to love April weddings just as much as I love october weddings!! Darrell and Meredith are an incredible pair. As we rode the bus downtown for portraits, I was chatting with Meredith’s older sister and I told her how much I loved these two. She explained that she had known Darrell was the one for her sister a LONG time ago. She said “You know, when two people are meant to be together, it’s so obvious. He brings out the absolute best in her.” Well, Michael and I were only with Darrell and Meredith for a little over 8 hours and we were able to see that ring true. These two are soul mates, best friends and now husband and wife!!

  • Amazing Life Together

a weekend! We’re still recuperating from our 1st double header of the season! Achy feet, thousands of images to cull and weekend emails to respond to. We’re tired but it’s such a GOOD tired! :) We absolutely loved our time with Darrell and Meredith on Saturday and then Josh and Katie on Sunday! I’ll be sharing Darrell and Meredith’s images tomorrow and I can’t wait! While Michael and I LOVE beautiful images, what we really care about are beautiful marriages.
