Mary Jean and Josh | The Renaissance Wedding

Mary Jean and Josh celebrated their wedding day during COVID which meant downsizing and moving a few things around. They decided to have their intimate ceremony with their closest loved ones and leave the reception for 2021! This day was still so special as Mary Jean got ready and took pictures at her parent’s house before the ceremony- I love it when the getting ready location is close to the bride’s heart and spent with her family and bridesmaids. After arriving at the venue, the couple did their sweet first look outside on Broad st. where we also took all the portraits. I loved the Richmond vibe for this day, along with a Christmas-themed wedding… it’s cozy, colorful, warm, and happy! The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and even better that they added a mini cake cutting to it instead of having the reception that day. Although it wasn’t the day they had pictured for a while, it was still so perfect.

Congratulations to the lovely Mr. and Mrs.- see you at the reception in a few months! 🙂

Bandit’s Ridge Wedding| Rachel and Tyler

Rainy days just don’t stress me out like they used to, friends. If anything, they can be even more romantic and magical than you could ever imagine… just like this perfect day at Bandit’s Ridge! Rachel and Tyler were a dream couple to work with, always so kind, joyful, and their love radiates for one another. They shared so many special moments this day with family and friends, but my favorite being when Rachel’s brother walked her down the aisle with tears streaming down his face. I enjoyed every moment of the day and wish nothing but endless blessings in Rachel and Tyler’s marriage. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Robertson!

Richmond Engagement Session | Christa + Rob

Christa and Rob are without a doubt one of my favorite couples. They are joyful, silly, fun, and madly in love with each other. Their cuteness is overwhelming and their love for each other makes my heart so happy! Their engagement session last Fall was absolutely stunning. We started at the VA State Capitol with soft colors and formal outfits. Then we made our way to Belle Isle while they changed into the most perfect Fall outfits! The shoot was complete with golden sunshine over the river and a colorful sunset while walking over the bridge. It was a beautiful evening for two beautiful souls. I can’t wait to share their recent wedding pictures based in Richmond with a church ceremony and Monument Avenue portraits!
