We did SO much laughing during Katherine and Taylor’s engagement session at the Virginia Museum of History & Culture! In just thirty minutes we got enough images for a full gallery of giggles and sweet, romantic moments.
The history museum, located in the heart of Richmond’s Museum District, was a beautiful backdrop for their engagement photos. I love the clean and neutral color of the building, the classic columns and architectural details, and of course the blooming hydrangeas!
Katharine wore a perfectly bridal, trendy, white mini dress, and Taylor opted for a blue button-up that really made their light eyes pop. I managed to find both pink and purple blossoms around the property for some very on-brand Remy Photos ring shots of Katharine’s new favorite piece of jewelry! And right at the end of the shoot, we lucked out with a stream of gorgeous golden light.
The best memories and the warmest smiles are captured when the couple just has FUN and treats their engagement session like a date night… where I’m the third wheel. It was truly a joy being that third wheel for the night with these two! Congratulations, cuties!
Kim and Brendan’s VMFA wedding was one for the books. Kim dreamed up the most classy, chic, fun, and colorful wedding day with so many amazing vendors! She packed in 3 dress changes, 3 venues, and 1 visit from her fur baby – also named Remy – all before their getaway in an antique Bentley.
In true Richmond fashion, they took the RVA Trolley from their ceremony at Pro-Cathedral of St. Peter to the reception at VMFA. Once inside, guests could get a caricature of themselves or watch as a live painter painted a scene from the church!
These two dated for 12 years before Brendan proposed. Then, they had to reschedule their big day due to COVID. Their faces walking down the aisle showed how long awaited this day had been, and how happy they were that it was finally here! Congratulations, friends!
