Jay and I had the best time getting to know Morghan and Alex in their Gramercy Park neighborhood in New York City.  The area is full of history, amazing architecture, and cute little restaurants.  They even took us to the spot where they had their first date!  They are such a fun couple, that embraces city life.  They love exploring new neighborhoods and riding Citi bikes together.  They are both really easy to talk to and such nice people!  I am so excited for their September wedding in Richmond Virginia.  I know it is going to be an absolute blast!!  See you both soon!!  XOXO!

These posts get harder and harder for me to write as we get closer to graduation!!  I have known Anna since she was in first grade!!  Her and Morgan were besties all through elementary school, went to different middle schools and then reconnected at Granby High school!  Anna is smart, kind, free-spirited, always thinking of others and has THE most beautiful eyes!!  It was such an honor for me to take her Senior portraits at the Hermitage Museum & Garden in Norfolk Virginia!  We had the best time and I was transported back to a simpler time when the girls would walk home from school and drink juices boxes and eat snacks in my backyard and play silly games.  In just a few short months they will all go their separate ways, but I know Anna is going to LOVE VCU!  Congratulations Anna!  I am immensely proud of you!  Keep up the good work!

Brittney & Tim were married at the Colonial Heritage Golf Club in Williamsburg Virginia on a beautiful spring day in April!  The cherry blossoms were in bloom, the sun was shining and Brittney and Tim were so excited to share this day with their Family and friends!  Everyone came together to help make sure it was perfect, too!  The staff at Colonial Heritage was absolutely AMAZING and made sure that everything was perfect!  I loved Brittney’s spring colors of gray and wisteria…it was the perfect combo for the day!  And Brittney’s Family and friends did the best job making sure the reception room was beautiful and her hair and make up were perfect!  We all had the best time hanging out with her FUN bridal party, too!!  Everyone was so nice and hilarious!  Thank you so much for choosing us to document this special day for you!  We were so honored to be a part of all this love and fun!  XOXO!

When Erin and Lloyd got out of the car for our Forrest Hill Park engagement session in Richmond, Virginia, first I was so excited to see them again (we photographed Erin’s cousins wedding last summer) and second I was immediately in love with their Corgi, Lilly Bell!  She is absolutely adorable!!  I love her little legs and her big ears!! 

Erin and Lloyd picked this spot for their engagement because this is where Lloyd proposed to Erin!  I love when my couples pick spots that are special and meaningful to them!  They used to spend a lot of time here, so it was the perfect spot for Lloyd to pop the question!  And I loved all the stories that they told Jay and I about the park, too!  Lloyd and Erin met at VCU as Urban Development Majors, so they know a lot about Richmond!  And the camera LOVES Erin!  I love the way Erin and Lloyd laugh when they are together!  Oh and Lilly…I LOVE LILLY!!!  We are so excited for their wedding at Wolf Trap Farm in September!  See you all soon!!  XOXO!

Kelsey and Nicholas’ John Marshall Ballroom wedding in Richmond Virginia is the stuff dreams are made of.  All day long we all kept remarking at how classic and beautiful Kelsey’s vision for her wedding was.  It was like something out of a 1920’s movie!  She looked absolutely stunning in her Blue Willow gown from Anne Barge with Lace Topper from Amy Kuschel!  And Nicholas was so handsome in his classic tux from The Black Tux.  I love that they decided to share a quiet moment alone (called a First Look!)  Nicholas was a little hesitant to break with tradition on this, but I think once he was alone with his Bride for a few moments, he was so happy they decided to do it!  It was very emotional for them both (me included!!) and one of my favorite moments of the day!  I also loved their FUN reception!!  Everyone had a blast dancing in the ballroom and Nicholas and his friends were happy to show everyone how they do it in Oklahoma!  The two step looked like a blast!  It was just the perfect way to kick off the 2017 wedding season and Jay, Devin and I were so honored to be a part of it!  Thank you so much for choosing us!!  XOXO!
