Christina and Brent were married in the beautiful Japanese Gardens of Maymont Park of Richmond, VA. Guests and family flew in from around the world to share in their wedding day celebration. We were certainly honored to be a part of the day and know (if we were only judging from their smiles!) they had a blast. Thanks to them both, and their family and friends. Enjoy!
Caitlin and Kevin chose St. Patrick’s Catholic Church for the ceremony and would couldn’t have been more pleased. While we’d had the opportunity to photograph inside the more famous St. John’s across the street in Church Hill, we had no idea what a little gem this place would be. Their beautiful ceremony and fun little portrait session in the surrounding streets of the neighborhood led us on to the Willow Oaks Country Club for the reception. Having gotten to know these two along with many of their friends from the Cloak-Cole wedding a few years back (see Kristan and Travis a few posts down for an update on their happy status), we had no doubt as to how fun this party would be. Enjoy!
The Wren family was nice enough to have us join Carly for her big event this September. She did a stellar job with her readings and speech, as we expected from such a graceful and intelligent young woman. Family and friends then moved on to the Jefferson Lakeside country club for their reception, full of dancing, games, and Carly’s very funny friends. Enjoy!
Part 2 in our year with Jennifer, Gauri, and their beautiful son Riyaan. I love to see the joy in new parents’ faces as their child moves through these precious early months. See if you can pick out a theme or two from his newborn session. Enjoy!
Thank you to Bill and Juliet for making us a part of the family for a brief time. It was just enough time to know that he’s a dream subject. Besides being charming and handsome…he slept on command, sported a dashing wardrobe, and was kind enough to allow his parents in on the fun. Enjoy!
…a baby to be named later 🙂
Thanks, you two. We can’t wait to get the good news!
Driving through the Shenandoah Valley is rarely disappointing. We’ve done a deal of traveling and I still say it ranks as one of the most beautiful places in the country for a drive or a hike. When your ultimate destination is the Homestead, well it just makes the drive all that much better. Jacqueline and Brad were kind enough to host us for a beautiful evening in Hot Springs, VA full of wonderful family and hilarious friends. Thank you to both families for being gracious and a delight to work for and with. Enjoy!
Having spent a good amount of time in various parts of the Eastern Shore (Chincoteage, Tilghman Igland, St. Michael’s and Onancock being some of our favorites) we were very exctied when Melanie and John asked us to be a part of their wedding day in an area where we’d spent little time. North of the Route 50 bridge, close to Chestertown, MD is a beautiful little area on the Sassafras River where we were fortunate to spend two days with the families documenting their rehearsal and wedding evenings. The sunsets didn’t disappoint and the weather (a little unpredictable here at times) was wonderful from start to finish. Thank you, you two, and everyone enjoy the images!
Laura and Kent were married on a beautiful August afternoon in Richmond. They chose First English Lutheran and The Country Club of Virginia as their settings in what proved to be a fun and elegant affair. Families and friends laughed, toasted, danced, and cheered as they made their way down the aisle, on to the dance floor, and away to their honeymoon. Enjoy!
It’s been fantastic getting to see Jennifer and Gauri again. You see, we photographed their wedding a few years back and were so excited when they decided to be parents that they wanted us to record the first year of their child’s life in images. Well, recently they let us know that Riyaan had arrived and their little boy was ready for his close up. As is want to happen, the beloved “first child” Ruskin (that’s the yellow furry one) looks less than amused at having his affection diminished but seems to understand his new role quite well. Pay attention to the cricket bat as it may just pop here and there as we travel with him to that wonderful 1 year birthday mark. Enjoy!
