Amanda + Jason // Richmond Virginia Wedding

This wedding was a beautiful whirlwind!

I met Amanda and Jason about a year ago while I was still living in Richmond, and immediately vibed with Amanda’s supercool attitude and Jason’s super sarcastic attitude! I just instantly loved these people and we immediately set up a date for an engagement session for a few months down the line (which you can refresh your memory on right over here).

I had a lot of fun with them and I knew their wedding would be incredible. Spoiler alert IT WAS!!!!

They were married at Historic Tredegar in Richmond Virginia, a beautiful almost-riverside historic building complex. Tredegar used to produce large cannons during the Civil War, and now houses a great Civil War museum. The open spacious environment inside and the absolutely perfect day outside provided a backdrop for this gorgeous wedding. I won’t say much more, just that I can’t get enough of these two and I’m so glad that I was there to witness their vows and celebrate their love! On to the photos!!

Sandy + Kevin // Baltimore Engagement

It was rainy, it was cold, it was windy, it was foggy, it was awesome.

I’m glad we all collectively decided to go through with this session despite the aforementioned meteorological issues Baltimore was experiencing at the time.

Have I mentioned yet how great Sandy and Keven are?? They are great!!! They’re wonderfully comfortable around each other that comes from a lasting love, and have a warmth to them that’s easy to see. Their wedding is going to be in Baltimore next month and I cannot wait to be there. Until then, check out this crazy baltimore engagement session!

MADDIE + DREW // WASHINGTON DC ENGAGEMENT

I met up with Maddie + Drew in DC, after they did a cake tasting for their wedding coming up this Summer!

I recommend all couples eat cake before an engagement session.

We walked around the Georgetown Waterfront in DC, exploring! The Swedish Embassy has a lot of fun spots to find, even if you have to dodge a few tourists and the occasional skateboarder to make it work. We discovered a boathouse that Maddie used to row from! Small world: It turns out that Maddie + I actually went to the same high school a few years apart!! Her and Drew now live out in Seattle and I was so excited to be able to meet them in person and make some art with these two amazing people!!!

Even though they’ve been together for more than 8 years now, and have two cats (the ideal number), I can sense that they have a very rich relationship. They share the same easygoing mentality that comes—i’m suspecting—from both a deep true love, and from moving out of the DC area. :)

But they also seem to be deeply happy in the life that they’ve built together. In walking and talking with them as we went along, I realized that their upcoming wedding is really less about entering into that perfect life, and more about throwing an awesome party in celebration of what they already have, and looking forward to what comes next. I expect great things from these two!
