Megan Senior Portraits

Megan graduated from UMW in December 2014, and earlier this summer we finally got around to doing a little senior portrait shoot for her! We went to the top of the Kennedy Center which is one of my new favorite places to shoot. I loved the bokeh my 85mm that I started using earlier this summer created. Definitely one of my best lens purchases ever!

Alicia & Jake – Tappahannock Wedding

Alicia & Jake were married in an intimate ceremony at their church. Alicia and Jake met 7 years ago in high school. Jake went off to the University of Richmond and he would come home every weekend to visit Alicia, and their relationship stayed strong while he was away at college. Jake always knew he would marry Alicia, so you can imagine his excitement building up to the First Look. He was so excited to see her finally, on their wedding day! It was such a sweet moment, and I loved that I got to capture it. Definitely my favorite moment of the day! Many sweet moments followed throughout the day, I had a great time doing portraits; these two are such good models! Also Alicia had one of the most beautiful engagement rings! Hope you enjoy these photos!

Casey & Stebbins – Khimaira Farm Wedding

I’ve been waiting for this wedding to happen for a while now. This couple is amazing and working with them has been a dream from beginning to end. They booked me waaaaaaay back in May 2013, and this wedding has been a long time coming. The day was absolutely perfect. The weather was amazing to start with and Casey was the calmest, happiest bride. I had a great time shooting details at their vacation house they rented for the weekend, and then I drove over to Khimaira Farm where I was overloaded with details. This is one of the venues that pays close attention to detail and I loved it! So many unique, rustic touches! For Casey’s wedding gift Stebbins gave her a locket with photos of her parents who unfortunately passed away when Casey was 19. Such a beautiful moment and this locket just added to the many details commemorating their spirit at the wedding.¬†Casey was wearing her mother’s dex boots, and her mother’s favorite flower is the Gerber daisy and they were all over the house! I loved being able to incorporate them into my detail shots :) The First Look was so sweet and Stebbins was overjoyed to finally see his bride after 7 years of waiting for this day! I loved how casual and comfortable the bridal party was, and the bridesmaids were wearing cowgirl boots! After a beautiful ceremony, and dinner, we snuck out for some sunset portraits. Well-worth it! I love when couples want to get sunset photos as they are my favorite! A sweet reception followed with Casey and Stebbins singing “How Sweet it is.” Amazing couple, amazing wedding, one of my favorites to date. Enjoy! A big thank you to all the vendors and thank you also to my awesome second shooter Linda Westling!

Sarah & Chris’ Dairy Farm Wedding

I had an amazing time shooting Sarah & Chris’ beautiful wedding on a dairy farm this month! Chris has a passion for raising cows, and Sarah has a passion for dairy nutrition. They met at Virginia Tech in 2009 and are now happily married and starting their lives together! I loved shooting this wedding on Chris’ parents’ farm. The ceremony was in their backyard with a backdrop of fields and cows :). We even got to take a photo with one of their favorite cows! I loved all the dairy themed details at their reception. Instead of a regular old bell to “ring for a kiss” they had mini cowbells! Also instead of a champagne toast, a milk toast! So cute and unique! Thank you to all the vendors who participated in making the wedding awesome and thank you most of all to my amazing second shooter Melodie Ann Photography!

Sarah & Christian – Main Street Station Wedding

Sarah and Christian’s Main Street Station wedding in Richmond, VA was nothing short of gorgeous and classy. The couple chose to do a First Look which is one of my favorite new wedding traditions :). The look on Christian’s face when he saw his beautiful bride for the first time on their wedding day was priceless. He just couldn’t take his eyes off her for the rest of the day! The day started with Sarah and her bridesmaids getting ready at the Omni Hotel, followed by portraits at the Virginia State Capitol, and finally a lovely ceremony and reception at Main Street Station. Throughout the day, I got to capture so much love and happiness with my camera; it was such an honor to be able to photograph their day! This is a BIG blog post because picking favorites was hard!!
