Matthew + Cameron | Engaged

  • Pony Pasture Engagement Pictures | Richmond, Virginia

Cameron mentioned having her engagement session at Pony Pasture Park and I suddenly realized that I had NEVER been there! Am I even a true Richmonder?! I am always excited to photograph a new couple in a new location but this session was extra exciting because Cameron is a photographer herself! I knew that if she picked a location that there would be so many perfect spots to shoot and I was right! We met these two at Pony Pasture on the south-side of Richmond last week and loved our time together!

Carter + Steph | Engaged

  • A Quirk Hotel + Richmond Pipeline Engagement

I’ve been so excited for this session and it’s not because these two are cute and it’s not because of Steph’s style…even though those are both great reasons to get excited for a shoot! I have been looking forward to this shoot because Steph is such a dear friend of mine and I am so excited for her!! We were college roomies and I have always looked forward to the day when I would get the call that she had found “the one”. I remember it perfectly… I was pulling out of the Willow Lawn Shopping center and my phone was buzzing. I saw it was Steph and I had a funny feeling that it was an important call.

The Non-Strapless Wedding Dress

  • Wedding Wednesday

It was almost 7 years ago when I was newly engaged and searching for a wedding dress of my own! I tried on ONE dress and bought it that day! ONE!! That was my first mistake! Why didn’t I try on more than one just for FUN?! I was weird I guess! That’s a post for another time. What I want to focus on today are OPTIONS. When I was thinking about this post I worried that my words would come across wrong and so I have a few disclaimers I would love to share before I continue!
