Winter Engagement Session in Downtown Richmond

Amanda & Jonathan l Richmond, VA

I received an email from Amanda the week after she got engaged.  We have followed one another for some time so it only felt right to be considered to be her wedding photographer! I not only felt like I knew her already, we shared some common interests (our deep love for starbucks double shot on ice) but I also felt so much excitement when I saw she was officially engaged.   I of course was bursting at the seams with the thought of photographing her wedding and was crossing my fingers and toes that their date would align perfectly with one of my last 2018 spots!  And thankfully it DID!!!  

Amanda and Jonathan met because of their favorite coffee shop barista.  True story.  She thought they would be a perfect match and eventually the two went out on their first date.  That is where it all began! When you are around these two you can't help but get why the barista thought they would be perfect together.  They both are so much fun to be around!

Amanda enjoys running (she runs more miles in a day than I have all year... true story) and because of her long runs she had great ideas for locations to use to photograph their engagement photos!

It all turned out so wonderfully and I truly can't wait for their big day! <3

Take a look at just SOME of my favorites!


McKenna & Ben l Engaged

I am SO excited to share a few of my favorites from McKenna and Ben's engagement session! 

McKenna and Ben both put so much thought into their session, what they wanted to incorporate and how to style their shoot! They even included their sweet little puppy!

I enjoyed my time with these two and I truly can't wait for their big day! 


Nicole & Wes l Engaged

I am so excited to finally share my favorites from Nicole and Wes's engagement session! Between my peak summer wedding season and vacationing with my family my blog posts have been delayed! But... FINALLY! Y'all this session has been on my top priority for sharing because... well just take a look! :)

Nicole and Wes, I can't wait for your big day!! 

Kendall & Matt l Married

Kendall and Matt were married at the historic Tredagar in Downtown Richmond, Virginia.  This venue is absolutely breathtaking.  It is located across the street from the river and that alone gives photographers many portrait ideas.  This venue has so much to offer and I can't begin to adequately describe how perfect it was.

Kendall (and Matt) put so much time and effort into the planning process of her wedding and that was so apparent in all of the tiny little details.  When I met Kendall she was full of ideas for her wedding and glowing with excitement and happiness.  We instantly hit it off, and I am so thankful to know call her a friend!

Kendall and Matt I am so so so happy for you both! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your big day! I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images from you day!!
