A Winter Anniversary Shoot | Richmond, VA

  • Ted + Heather | Married

days happen in a flash! You always hear that but you never understand it until it’s your own wedding day! All of a sudden, you’re being introduced at your own reception and you’re thinking “Wait! It’s almost over?!”. Our wedding was a blur…. a beautiful blur! And our wedding pictures help us remember how amazing that day was. However, even though we have fabulous images… what bride wouldn’t want to get dolled up again and spend an hour or so taking a few extra wedding portraits with her new husband?! Michael, I know it’s been two years but this would be FUN!! :) Ted and Heather just shared their one year anniversary in December

A NYC Central Park Wedding | Loeb Boathouse | Destination Wedding

  • Ross + Brittany

I met with Brittany and her mom in Starbucks only a little over a month ago. I was still in shock that Christmas was right around the corner! …. They were in shock that the WEDDING was right around the corner!  It amazes me to hear brides talk about planning their wedding in large cities. Brittany was planning hers in one of the largest of them all, NYC! While this seems intimidating for most people, it was normal life for Brittany. She has lived in New York City for quite some time and so has Ross. The traffic and busy streets are just the norm to them and so naturally, having their wedding in the city was very fitting. This city is where they call home and it was the perfect place to begin their new life together!!



  • 2012 Money Pics

Some have asked what exactly determines a “Money Pic”? Perfect light? perfect composition? Amazing exposure all together? Maybe. I’m not really sure to be honest. There are just some images that give me a feeling. That feeling could be caused by numerous things. Maybe the composition is perfect…. maybe the light is amazing… maybe it’s a money shot because it has emotional value… maybe it’s because I took nothing and made it turn into something amazing….It could be that “Money Pics” are selected because the represent me trying something new… maybe I pushed the limits a bit…….
