Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas-20

When Kristen first contacted me about photographing her and Lee for their Christmas card, I must admit I was slightly terrified.  The reason being that Kristen is an amazing film photographer herself and I admire her work so much (see that pretty photo of me to the right, she took that).  Although nervous, I was also flattered and really excited about the opportunity to photograph these two.  First of all, these two are beautiful together and such naturals in front of a camera but the best part was that Kristen encouraged me to try and basically just shoot film during their session.  What a gift that was!  Once I didn’t have to worry so much about making sure I got the same pictures on digital and film ‘just in case’ I was able to really focus and enjoy shooting film.  I absolutely love how these images (all film) came out even with the cloudy skies (towards the end check out the really dark skies behind us that brought in a downpour right as we finished).  Kristen and Lee, thank you for this opportunity and the encouragement!  Y’all should check out Kristen’s beautiful work after looking through these images.      Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas_27Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas_37Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas-23Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas_36Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas_39Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas-9Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas_33Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas-7Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas_32Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas-14Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas_34Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas-2Kristen_Lee_Virginia_Christmas_35

Dana_Kyle_DC_Engagement_Blog-39

Happy weekend everyone!  I don’t usually blog on weekends but I just couldn’t wait until Monday to share this session.  Dana & Kyle are incredibly kind, gorgeous, and adorable together and I had such a great time meeting them and spending an afternoon together (though oddly enough, Kyle and I actually met once when we were much younger at a wedding).  I absolutely love that these two had inspiration behind their engagement session and especially loved the awesome colorful backdrop Dana found.  Although it was cloudy and rained a bit during the session, these two were so positive and didn’t let it bother them one bit.  I absolutely cannot wait for their wedding next summer in Charlottesville!

Erika_Bryan_Fells_Point_Maryland_Engagement-5

Happy Tuesday!  So I know I promised you all a week of giveaways this week but instead I am bringing you lots of beautiful blog posts that are overdue and then next week I promise, there will be giveaways.  I am kicking off the week with this gorgeous couple that I absolutely adore!  No really, I love these two to pieces and had the best time with them in Fells Point for their engagement session.  Erika & Bryan invited me to meet up with them for a drink before their session at one of their favorite spots, Max’s – it felt like getting a drink with old friends.  These two love and care for each other in such an incredible way and being around them you can’t help but smile.  Spending time with them reminds you of the importance of showing your love for one another and made me want to run home and give my hubs a hug and tell him how much I love him – what an amazing gift it was to me to spend time around these two.  I had such a great time getting to know them and witnessing how happy they make each other.  Also as a side note, I am totally amazed by Erika’s job as a helicopter nurse – how awesome is that?!?  I absolutely cannot wait for their wedding next fall but until then, enjoy some of my favorites from their session.

Lindsay_Tom_Richmond_Virginia_Engagement-29

From the first time I spoke with Lindsay and Tom on the phone, I knew I was going to love them.  They invited me to Richmond for their engagement session and though I have not spent much time there before, I was really impressed with the town and how adorable it is.  I had such a wonderful time with these two and instantly felt like I was photographing friends.  They are incredibly genuine and fun (plus have great style) and made me feel so welcome into the town they call home.  I am so thankful the rain held out for this session and love how the colors came through on film (almost all film images in this post!).  I can’t wait for their wedding next summer in Williamsburg!Lindsay_Tom_Richmond_Virginia_Engagement_47Lindsay_Tom_Richmond_Virginia_48Lindsay_Tom_Richmond_Virginia_50Lindsay_Tom_Richmond_Virginia_Engagement-36Lindsay_Tom_Richmond_Virginia_49Lindsay_Tom_Richmond_Virginia_51Lindsay_Tom_Richmond_Virginia_56Lindsay_Tom_Richmond_Virginia_Engagement-34Lindsay_Tom_Richmond_Virginia_53Lindsay_Tom_Richmond_Virginia_54Lindsay_Tom_Richmond_Virginia_52
