It is the end of the year, and I LOVE to look back at all the FUN we have had over the season!  There are so many great memories that I broke up the Behind the Scenes into three parts this year.  Click on the links to see Part I and Part II!  Both of my kids got into the action this year.  Truman is great at wrangling babies and making them smile.  Morgan is awesome to have on Senior shoots, as she is very great at styling and helping them to feel comfortable.  Jay, Megan and Alisz are my right (and sometimes left) hands at weddings!  I could not do my job as well as I do without them and words do not quite sum up how appreciative I am of them.  They carry heavy things for me, they chase down Family members who have gotten away, they help me hang dresses, they keep me hydrated, they fluff, button, lace, and bustle Brides all while taking compromising photos of me!!  They are amazing and I LOVE them!!  Thank you three for all that you do for Leigh Skaggs Photography!  Can’t wait for 2015!!

I had the pleasure of shooting Niki and Bryan’s engagement session and wedding this past year.  I love this couple!  They are so FUN and really a perfect fit for one another.  When I met Niki and Bryan, they were getting ready to have their second child.  Little Beau decided that planning a wedding and being pregnant wasn’t quite enough for his Mama to handle and he came early…at 33 weeks.  He had a bit of a rocky start…but he is a fighter and I am glad to report is doing great now!!!  I love his HUGE blue eyes and easy-going way.  Oh and his immature GI system…that kid pukes on everything…reminds me of my Morgan when she was a baby!  :-)  Their Daughter Scarlett is a riot!  She is full of energy and sass.  I loved hanging out with her.  She cracks me up!  She is so smart and had so many things to tell me about.  It was such an AWESOME session and I loved getting to spend time with them again!  I can’t wait to keep my eyes on this Family for years to come!  Merry Christmas Thacker’s!  XOXO!!

Erin and DJ met in Williamsburg Virginia when Erin was finishing her undergrad at William and Mary College.  DJ recreated their first date and proposed at the sunken garden on the campus, so of course this is where we started their Engagement Session!  I had a great time getting to know them both and can’t wait for their October wedding at the Williamsburg Alumni House.  They love to travel together and will be going to Bora Bora for their Honeymoon…can you say jealous?!?!  :-)  They are a really great couple and I loved watching them interact with one another.  You can tell that DJ adores Erin…just the way he looks at her conveys this.  And Erin can’t get enough of DJ, either!  Erin has recently transferred to Boston for work and DJ still lives in Williamsburg, so they were so happy to be spending time together.  Thanks you two for showing me some of your favorite places in Williamsburg.  I had a great time and can’t wait for the wedding!!  XOXO!

Tina and Matt met on a ski trip while they were in Med school in New Jersey.  Matt had noticed her around school and thought she was pretty, but he was a year ahead of her, so they didn’t have a lot of interaction.  On the ski trip, he saw her hanging out and took a chance and went to talk to her.  The rest is history!!  They both work in Pediatrics here, though Matt is in the Air Force…which is what brought them to Norfolk Virginia.  We met at the Pagoda in downtown Norfolk then took advantage of the beautiful Freemason area for their engagement session…before it started to rain and we had to hurry back to the car.  I had a great time getting to know them both.  They are both such nice, kind and really great people.  And So in LOVE!!  It makes my day to hang out with such a wonderful couple and I wish them all the best at their New Jersey wedding!!
